Photo of the Day (12.09.08)

Snow came to Michigan early this year, and as I shift from looking out to the back deck to scrolling through the extended forecast, it looks like it’s here to stay. Winter is usually tough around here, but as I get older in the Midwest it seems that every season get a little longer and colder.

Back where I grew up in rural Kalamazoo, I was often confronted with scenes like this on my way to school, cold, foggy snowscapes against a bleak December sky. In a way, it’s peaceful and it reminds me of the pleasures of being home in the silent, motionless winter.

gtetonswy shot this image that looks like it could have been across the street from my childhood home. It brings back a lot of good memories.
