This past Friday evening, here in western Connecticut we finally had our first "real" snow of the winter. Of course, we're now also in a bitter cold snap with wind chills below zero.
But, on the bright side, we're finally enjoying the winter landscape. Snow on the ground, bright sun shining down and reflecting off the snow and illuminating the world, and cheery blue skies. Skaters, fishers and the adventurous are enjoying frozen Candlewood Lake and the various ponds throughout the area. Children - and adults - can be seen flying down hills on their plastic sleds. One of the true charms of living in New England is the enjoyment we get from each of the seasons.
Sure, winter can be cold. The winds can be brutal and, well, devastating to your skin. Summers can be hot and humid. But these extremes typically pass quickly, allowing us to truly enjoy the beauty - and the multitude of recreational options - that each season has to offer.
Yesterday, my son and I went around town taking photos of what is winter in New Fairfield, Connecticut.
