We are now four days out from the great Blizzard of 2013. Sick of looking at the aftermath yet? I know I'm sick of not being able to see things that were once eye level with my five foot body. We are all embracing these new found challenges as we live in a sea of snow. With more snow on the way, I can't help but to think, what's a few more inches at this point in the game? I'm only feeling like I'm playing a part in "Honey, I shrunk the kids" as it is anyways so why not continue that trend.

I've gotten around to explore this new landscape that has so graciously been brought down to us from the heavens above. (They shouldn't have, really.) As I've been exploring I have encountered a number of ways to numb my mind of just how much snow has surrounded me, and one of those ways is through photography. It's therapeutic at this stage in the game.

The Litchfield Hills of northwestern Connecticut has long been known for it's bucolic charm and picturesque scenery. I'm not sure if anyone is out there calling any of this bucolic  but the scenery that goes with it is quite impressive. As I was snapping away taking pictures, I could envision my childhood days all over again. The sledding, the laughter, the snowball fights and bonfires. It was all so great.....until I grew up and had to start shoveling it.
