The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for several counties in northern Minnesota. Snow may start to fly Thursday evening, with six inches of snow on the ground before Friday is done. Well, it is October now . . . but, couldn’t we at least let the leaves fall off of the trees before we cover them in snow?
Since I already published my weekly “Reflection of Gratitude,” I will just call this “P.S. Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.”
But rather than blathering on about the magic that winter can bring, and why many of us truly do look forward to having a winter season (at least for the first month or two it visits us), I will let a short video do the talking. I put this together after doing a day trip with White Wilderness Sled Dog Adventures near Ely, Minnesota last winter. I was reminded of the video since Ely is one of the cities included in the winter storm watch area this week . . . and because it always brings a smile to my face whenever I think of the memories my family and I have from that magical day in the winter woods.
I will post some of the photos I took that day in a future post, once winter arrives on a more permanent basis — let’s hope that is not next week!
