Snow and cold, cold and snow

"If not actually disgruntled, he was far from being gruntled."--P.G. Wodehouse



We have had two days of steady snow, cold and gray skies.  I am not gruntled.



I know it's really pretty and lots of people like snow but the transition from fall to winter seems to bring more aches and pains every year.  OK, so a little tiny piece of blue peeked out before the sun set today.  And I do love my wood fire.  I'm trying to change my disgruntled attitude!

There might be unfrozen waters elsewhere on the planet but it ain't here.  Take a look at Watery Wednesday to see some fluid forms of water, and maybe a few more snow shots too.

Pretty to look at from some place warm. Wood stove is nice. I'm not gruntled either.

It is pretty to look at, but I like snow less with each year that passes. I understand about not being gruntled!

I agree, my wife is sick because she isn't use to the transition.

We have rainy and snowy days

I definitely would be gruntled to see the snow. But--I can certainly understand people not liking it so much IF they get tons and tons of it every year. I just don't see much--not enough for me.

Beautiful pictures.
Hugs,
Betsy

I love that P. G. Wodehouse quote! In my family we had a condition where your 'gruntle' could be 'dissed'.

Seeing the magic in cold and snow definitely requires more of an effort as the years go by. Yesterday I slipped and fell on some frosty leaves - rather gracefully, I thought, in the circumstances. But it made me feel OLD!

I'll enjoy your snow. You can keep it. Don't send any this way.

One of my favourite quotes. :) I love telling people I'm gruntled or decidely not gruntled - even if they might think I'm slightly, er, different for doing so.

I also find snow leaves me lacking gruntlement, so you have my sympathies.

You had me on your quotes -- from St Augustine and PG Wodehouse --what a combination -- and then your pictures really reeled me in. Brr. But what a fun post. Hooray for WW for leading me to your blog.

Loran, it's the first time I heard this word: gruntled. Lovely. Keep warm - you're positive under the circumstances. Hugs from sunny South Africa! Joxxx

I am with you, I do not like the snow hanging around either. It is pretty to look at first but then it can go away. And I love wood fires. Pretty photos.

I love looking at other peoples' snow shots. Not so big a fan of the white stuff when it's piling up outside my own windows though :)

Well, I'm gruntled. I like snow.
