So, instead of feeding into this ridiculous meteorological fear-mongering, I'm going to take the more reasonable route and give a more personal name to this cold snap. I will name it Helen.
Hi, Helen. You're cold. I'm going to wear a down coat and gloves when I greet you.
Helen has been with us for awhile now and she has taken her toll. However, while browsing Facebook, a friend, who is a superb photographer, has been posting the most amazing pictures that makes Helen seem beautiful and almost welcoming. Michelle Fritz is a long-time friend of mine, and it is always a delight to see what new Helen-pictures Michelle has captured. I want to share just a few of my favorites with you so that you too might find an appreciation for Helen.
|This is one of my kids' favorites.|
|I LOVE her black-and-white pics.|
|My dad calls these "rapture clouds". Stunning, yes?|
I hope you all have a fabulous Friday, everyone. And be kind to Helen. There's beauty to be found in her. Just bundle up when you go looking for it!
