Ready or not, here it comes! Winter in the North Cape

When I looked out the window this morning I have to confess that my first thoughts were NOT, “Yippee!  Snow!”

While my kids ran around the house, excitedly putting on winter parkas and  shouting, “We can make snow caves, and throw snow balls and go sledding and skiing and… and … and…” I was thinking about 7 months of winter and wondering if I’m really ready for it.  I’m not sure I am ready for it, but when I came to work today, I was reminded of how beautiful this season is…. with magical light that changes with each passing day, drawing us quickly into the polar night season.

So ready or not, here it comes  – Winter has said hello to the North Cape!

  1. Beautiful pictures Erica! I’m also looking at the photograph that I bought from your gallery this summer….which was also a snowy day scene. Enjoy watching the kids have fun in it!

    1. Thank you, Karen. The photograph you have is from March on a beautiful crisp day. Feels like it wasn’t so long ago 🙂 The kids are thrilled and I like it, but not a big fan of driving in it 🙂

    1. Hi Kevin. My photos from the first snow fall last year are dated Oct. 7, but it wasn’t as much as this. But typically, the weather will warm up a bit and and the snow will disappear. It’s not until sometime in December that it stays for the rest of the season. But driving when the temperature hovers around zero is treacherous…. at least for me 🙂

  2. Winter has come early for us as well, here in Gardnerville NV. By the way, where in states are you from originally?

  3. Love you my sweet friend. Would sure enjoy sitting with you and sharing a very lonnnnnnng cup of coffee, talking the morning away, and sharing friendship. I miss you. (at the same time, so thrilled you are living your dream ~~ you and your sweet family)

    1. Thanks Diane. I would love a long cup of coffee with you. And what an adventure you are all on! I’m so impressed with you and your boldness to go the road less travelled. Love you and miss you!

  4. What a lovely hello! It’s always a but bittersweet when the seasons shift. I’m looking forward to more of those landscapes in magical light, Erica. You’re off to a perfect start!
