At least the sky is clear.

Winter Wonderland — with Pics!

The snow has been falling for a few days now; needless to say, it tends to make things difficult, especially if you actually have to go somewhere (say, to work, or to pay bills, or to purchase groceries….).

Not everyone is unhappy with the snow. Some people really love it, if they don’t have to go far. Some kids and plenty of dogs are quite happy to play in the snow (because of the snow and the low temperatures situation, schools won’t be working this entire week). Cats don’t seem to mind the snow, either — the one on the picture below is as friendly and soft-furred as usual:
Pet me or I’ll bite!
How about you? Do you have problems with the winter and the snow?
