Snow at the House

“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.” – Carl Jung

One thing I miss about it being cold is not being able to ride my bike. I generally don’t ride if it is lower than 50 degrees outside. I’m sure my friends who live in colder parts of the world are thinking that 40 degrees isn’t that bad. For me it’s just I don’t like my face getting too cold. Wearing a neck gaiter causes my glasses to fog up. I haven’t been but a couple of times this year. I know spring will be here before I know it, but I do miss my weekly rides. I usually go about 10 miles. I try to go a different route each time, and I bring my camera with me. The exercise is great, but it also gives me some time to clear my head and get focused on everything coming up for the week.

While the cold has kept me off my bike, I have been able to enjoy something that I haven’t seen in years, snow. This year we have had three snow events so far. The last one was much to write about, but the two before that were pretty significant. I couldn’t ride my bike around town, but I walked around my neighborhood, capturing some of the sights with the snow. These shots I took of my hydrangea bush. My grandmother gave it to us when we first moved to Charlotte almost 10 years ago. It doesn’t look like much now, but during the spring and summer it’s one of my best-looking plants in the yard.
