We want our winter wonderland!
In the heart of the big 2010-2011 winter the snow was three feet deep even down on the valley floor, where it felt like it would never melt.
FRISCO —I think we’re all ready for it now. After all, it is the first week of December, a time of year when we traditionally start thinking about a white Christmas. And with an incoming storm forecast to drop at least a few inches the next few days, I know that I’ll be dreaming about snow tonight. Since the daily photo essay is always the last post that I schedule before signing off for the day, I’ll have these snowy images from winters past in my mind as I go to bed. Snow is renewal, snow is healing, snow is life.
Many of the images in Summit Voice photo essays are available in our Fine Art America online gallery, and there’s also Summit County gallery at our ImageKind website. You can also order images by contacting me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s a great way to support independent online journalism!
A little bit of this, please.
Falling fresh snow gives everything a new look. Summit County readers might recognize this as the little shack at the corner of School Road and Summit Blvd. in Frisco.
