Self-Portrait – February

Yet again I’m posting my self-portrait late. One of these months I’ll post it during the actual month. For now… ugh and sorry.

February for me is equal parts exciting and horrid. It’s the end of winter, which by this point I’m tired of shoveling, of being cold, of all the dreariness. We don’t get a lot of sunny days in SW Michigan. So I’m eagerly looking forward to March and melting snow and spring. The exciting part is when things do start melting. Those random days where the temps heat up and the fog rolls in, the fields are covered in this thick wet air from the melting snow. It’s beautiful.

This February was all it should have been in that regard. Several days in a row of temps in the 50′s. Fog. Melting snow. Then more snow – the heavy wet kind that packs into snowmen perfectly. We took the kids sledding one last time this winter. It was a blast. Celebrating all that is winter and spring being around the corner with every whoosh down the hill.

This month’s portrait also celebrates my favorite winter phenomenon. Hoarfrost. “Hoar frost refers to the white ice crystals, loosely deposited on the ground or exposed objects, that form on cold clear nights when heat losses into the open skies cause objects to become colder than the surrounding air.” – Wikipedia.

It doesn’t happen often enough in my opinion.
