(Not Quite) Wordless Wednesday: February Snow on Snow

This has been such a crazy winter in Chicago. No sooner do we get some snow and it melts within a day. The storm we got last Thursday proved to be no different. During the late afternoon snowflakes 4-inches round began falling. By the morning, we woke up to a beautiful white world of 'snow on snow'. I knew we had a choice: do our homeschooling as usual or get outside and go hiking before all the snow melted again. We opted for choice number two. (Please note, all of these photos are in color. It was an amazing day of 'black and white'.) 

In the bleak midwinter Frosty wind made moan, 
Earth stood hard as iron, 
Water like a stone; 
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, 
Snow on snow, 
In the bleak midwinter, 
Long ago.
~Christina Rossetti

    1. I love that the bench 'proves' these were actually color photos. It was wild how 'black and white' they all turned out!
