[Photo Journal/ A-Z Photo Challenge] W is for Winter in Wooster

It is Tuesday! Time for Frizztext’s A-Z Photo Story Challenge. Letter this week is W, and so I share photos of my first winter with snowfall. Hooray! I was in Ohio a couple of weeks ago and spent time with my boyfriend and his family. It usually doesn’t snow at this time of the year but I was fortunate to have seen snow when I was there. Here are a few snapshots I took the night the snow fell and the day after. These may not be the best snow pictures but the snow certainly made my winter this year extra special.

“Snow falling soundlessly in the middle of the night will always fill my heart with sweet clarity.”
— Novala Takemoto, Missin’ (novel)

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
— Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass

“All Heaven and Earth
Flowered white obliterate…
Snow… unceasing snow.”
— Hashin, Japanese haiku

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
— John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America

And here is a short video of a cat in the snow. It pretty much sums up how I felt that night.

Fats is the Assistant Manager for Circulation Services at the Wayne County Public Library in Wooster, Ohio. She considers herself a reader of all sorts, although she needs to work on her non-fiction reading. Fats likes a good mystery but is not too fond of thrillers. She takes book hoarding seriously and enjoys collecting bookmarks and tote bags. When she is not reading, Fats likes to shop pet apparel for her cat Penny (who absolutely loathes it).

  3. Glad you enjoyed your Wintry Snow in Wooster. So did we! We are expecting 4 – 6 inches more today. I think John Steinbeck has the right idea. Thank you!
