Snow Fun - Mother Nature's April Fool Joke

We had been having some really nice, sunny days in March, but the weather seems to be playing a prolonged April Fool's prank on us.  It feels a lot more like the bleak mid-winter, with frosty winds making moan outside than the mischief of the Merry Little Breezes (extra credit if you get the two oblique references there - especially the second one!).  

Since it is acting wintry, I thought it might be fun to share a couple photos from back in January that I never managed to get posted.   

My brother-in-law took this picture with his cell phone through the back window when he and my sister came up to visit one day.  My porch furniture looked like it was covered with marshmallow creme topping.  I particularly like the play of light and shadow and the way the little drift of snow is curling off the arm of the chair to the left of the table.  

During a short melt, Baloo and I walked through the park and saw these curls of snow slipping off the slide.  It's nice to know that they were enjoying the playground equipment.  

And finally, though I posted this picture of Baloo posing with a buddy at the park on the Stampeaz Facebook page, not everybody that checks in here uses social media sites, so I thought it would round out the snow fun!  

Oh!  I almost forgot!  By way of warning, tomorrow I will be posting a spoiler for the April invoice image, so if you want your order to have a surprise inside, don't peek!

Those pictures are GREAT! I especially love the snow at the bottom of the slide, fantastic shot!
