Welcome February!

Here in the Finger Lakes of Central New York State, February is not always a welcome month.  
We are itching for Spring to come, but after our usual January thaw a couple of weeks ago, with temps in the 50s...we are faced with the brutal return of Winter...cold, wind and snow.
I'm hoping that February goes as quickly as January does, and then we are on the backside of Winter and heading towards Spring! In the meantime, I'm working on inside projects...some painting and some quilting...good ways to keep busy while we are stuck inside.  We should be putting the taps into our trees soon for maple syruping too.

I thought it might be fun to take a little look back at Winters past...and so, I found these Winter photos to share with you.

No snowplows back then...can you imagine each street having to be dug out by hand and hauled away in carts??

Stay warm my friends!


  1. I remember when we were thinking of moving up there, it was called the snow belt and I can see why. I hope you stay warm and we have an early spring this year.


  2. Hi Wendy, I am so glad Jan. is behind us, it is my least favorite month of the year. I am like you and looking forward to spring. Can't wait to see your quilts, I would like to get more into quilting. Thanks for sharing the older pictures, I love them. Wish we could set down for a cup of coffee and talk. hugs, Lecia

  3. Loved seeing the old photos Wendy. We've been having snow here in Michigan too now. Janice

  4. The old photos are awesome. I love history. Yes, cold weather has arrived. We are still getting rain as well. Hopefully no below 0 temps or we will have ice :)
