We live in a beautiful portion of the country. From any part of Spokane, you're just a few minutes in any direction to being in the wilderness, the prairie or the rolling farmlands. Mountain streams and the hidden valleys abound. With this heavy snow, even a walk through the South Hill becomes an escape into nature.
I enjoy winter! I enjoy how the ice and snow seem to make the colors pop more than they normally do, how the city sounds are dampened but the sounds of the snow itself seem magnified. The winter of 2015-16 started off a bit stronger than some of the previous ones ... and I'm thankful for that.
