December is well on the way and activities are many,as we prepare for Christmas.
Living in southern Manitoba,Canada,one thing we like to see around this time of year,or at least some of us like to see,is a good layer of snow.We have some,the ground is mostly covered,but ideally,I would like to see more.
The following are images from the end of December of 2013.
All photos are taken on my yard and likely from the warm comfort of my house,perhaps through an open window. Enjoy,winter as it should be in Manitoba.
I love watching a snowfall like this. Big flakes,quickly blanketing the landscape.
The words from this song seem to match the images above.
Snowy flakes are falling softly
Clothing all the world in white
High above the stars are shining
Twinkling through the wint'ry night
Was it just like this, we wonder,
Starry bright and crisp and cold
On that Christmas night of old?
Angels spread their wondrous story:
Jesus Christ is born today
"Peace on earth," they sang, "and glory
Be to God on High alway"
So we sing the sweetest carols
Telling how the King of love
Came to save from heaven above
