A Snap, A Set and A Song - Winter

As we endure a summer that has already produced a record number of heat waves - the theme for this week's A Snap, A Set and A Song is - Winter! Once again we join with Thea for this week's theme.

The Snap

This week's snap was taken in front of my house after a snowstorm in February, 2010. For those of you who have never (or rarely) seen snow, this might seem exciting. If so, would you care to stop by this next winter and be prepared to shovel for me? See you in December - plan on staying through March!

The Set

Since we are in the last days of the London Summer Olympics, here is a look at some of the past Winter Olympic posters - and one for the next one, in 2014.

The Song

This week I went into my archives for a copy of Blood Sweat and Tears - Sometimes in Winter, and put it behind a video of my grandtwins' first romp in the snow (January, 2011)



  1. Now THAT'S winter!!
    Just what I was hoping for.
    Love the snap, I can't even imagine that much snow.
    Great idea for the set, and very clever bonus. I know it has to be annoying to live with but it look so pretty!
    Such a cute video of the twins.
    Fantastic SS&S this week.

    Thanks so much for linking.

    1. This winter I will have to take a picture of what snow looks like 2 days after it falls (at least in a major city). As far from pretty as it gets. :-(

  2. The video of your grandkids is sooooo cute! And love the snow falling gently in the other video. Great idea to show the Olympic posters, and your snap of the snow is amazing! :)

    1. Welcome to winters in my part of the world. So, can I count on you to come and shovel for me this winter? LOL!

  3. Wow! I don't think I could ever handle living in a place with winter like that. I've only ever been to the snowfields once and I was so overwhelmed by all the snow and you live somewhere that's like that on a regular day in winter. Unreal! I love that video of your grandtwins, so so cute!
