Are We Tired of Winter Yet?


Yes, I am going to be another winter whiner. If you live anywhere near New England, you’ve probably heard mass moaning about the unprecedented cold and seemingly constant snowfall. In fact, there may be one giant nationwide grumble reverberating from state to state since this winter has taken its toll on many places where winters are usually mild. I heard a rumor that the only state that hasn’t had snow this year is Hawaii. No wonder we’ve got the widespread winter blues.

It’s yet another snow day in our school district, which means they will start to tack days onto the end of the school year, or I’ve heard the possibility that the snow days may be threatening April vacation. No one is happy about this. Even my daughter groaned that school was cancelled today. And I have to admit that snow blowing the driveway is getting really old.

Okay. I’m done whining. Thanks for letting me vent.

Now, in an effort to curb these winter doldrums, I thought I would share some images that I think help bring out the beauty of winter. We often stop appreciating beauty when it is set before us over and over again. I still think snow is beautiful even if I am a little tired of the hassles it can bring with it.

So, I hope you can put your annoyances aside for a brief view of winter through my eyes…





















You may recognize some of the images since I’ve used a few in previous posts. All of the above are photographs that I’ve digitally and artistically enhanced to resemble paintings. You can view more of our art at Red Barn Artworks, or you can click on an image for gift information.

How are you feeling about winter? I know it’s not even the end of February yet, and I’m supposed to be a hardy New Englander, but winter did seem to come unusually early this year.

I hope you enjoyed this little winter pick-me-up!

Until next time,

  1. I love living in a place where there are four seasons. (I’ve lived in some where there were only 2 or 3…)
    And, I mind- but don’t grumble- about clearing the snow. And, I mind- but don’t grumble about driving on uncleared roads. It’s a lot easier to stay warm outside when there is snow that it is to stay cool when the humidity and the temperature are in the 90s…
    But, I don’t get the newfangled notions that “there is a chance of snow tomorrow and schools will be closed”. Cheez!

      That’s agood point, Roy, it really is easier to bundle up and stay warm than it is to stay cool. I will certainly remember this during our humid 90+ degree weather in the summer. And I guess we are lucky with the different seasons as well.

  2. Love the red barn beyond the creek and that lime green door. They’re all great but those made me smile extra :)

    I’d love to be tired of winter. But since I live in SoCal, its pretty impossible. Every day is a another day in paradise. Sunshine and winter temps that range from 68 to 74. Truth is, I miss living in Denver. The seasons, the smell in the air of autumn, the crisp colors of fall, the briskness of winter and the warm wrap of summer. That being said, I don’t miss the freezing temps, driving on ice and waking up to single digits. Especially since I have a dog that demands to be walked three times a day, no matter what the weather. LOVE, love the pics!

      Tammy, I too have a dog that requires walking (thankfully, only one time a day)! And the amount of time I spend bundling both of us up (me in my coat, neck warmer, hat, mittens and boots, and him in his coat and booties), remind me of when I’d bundle our kids up to play outside in this weather! It almost feels like an extra walk with the amount of time added! I must admit I have a tiny bit of envy when it comes to your temperate weather!

    Awesome art, Suerae.

    We have had a strange month. There was a little snow and some annoyingly chilly weather and now it is in the 70s.

    I agree with Roy about the ability to add clothes in winter and the inability to take off enough in the summer and we go into the triple digits that our AC can’t keep up with.

    Remember this too will pass.

    Great artworks, Suerae! It made me want to have some snow in London. Because you see, over here, all we have had since Xmas is rain, rain, and more rain. I can’t take it any more.
