The snow and ice closed the schools; so the kids were out in force.

I love this picture friend. Like the first image plane full of snow dotted with small branches. The group of people moving in single file! With a huge tires! To glide through the snow perhaps? A scene full of life and perfect editing Best regards, besos y abrazos, Adela

How enchanting reminds me that the Snow Queen could be around the corner
and that you will be greeted by talking animals and the like. The green and white
together are mesmerizing, as is the photo.

And that is why we think you Americans are pansies ;) Get a few inches of snow, and the schools close down... Well, actually that makes you lucky. These are some really beautiful winter shots.

10 Mar 2011 7:22pm

@Andrea: They certainly didn't close the schools when we lived in Alaska.

StarCosmosBleu from Bedford.Qc, Canada

This could be the last outing of winter...lovely shot...
