Winter In Cape Cod/ Door County

The winters vary in severity. One winter you will get 3 snowstorms and in-between it will be 40, 50, dare I say 60 degrees? Other winters it is bitter cold with tons of snow, no snow, and any other combination you can possibly think of. What is the deal? Well they say that the warmer than usual  Northern Pacific Ocean this winter will cause a cold snowy winter in the Northeastern U.S. That means I am in trouble. I live in Rhode Island now.

Door County has already seen its first snow of the season and with the wind off of Green Bay All of Door County is down right bone chilling even in 40 degree weather with all that moisture in the air.

I took a few chilly photos in down town Sister Bay.
You won't be sailing today.

 Sunrise is pretty!

 Sometime you need get started on your snow fort early. A dusting of snow won't stop us from having some fun.

Action shot here to the right with my shovel trying really hard to get enough snow for a sweet fort for my three year olds.

Our Visit with Connie Glowacki

We biked away from Julie's Park Cafe with our bellies full. I told Ellie we should do some window shopping and she agreed. We headed up the hill to the Top of the Hill Shops. We walked around until we came to Connie Glowacki's Gallery. Connie is a lovely woman with a lot of great watercolor paintings. We walked through the door with our twin three-year-olds, and Connie was very warm and welcoming. Connie walked to the back and brought out a plastic tote of stuffed animals for the boys to play with. Ellie and Connie talked about art and we must have spent a good half an hour in her shop. While Connie and Ellie were talking I looked through Connie's prints and painting. I ended up purchasing a puzzle. The puzzle is a black and white rendering of a old barn with a old truck from the thirties or forties parked alongside it. It is a 308 piece puzzle. It should be fun to put together, and then we can hang it on the wall when we are done. It only cost a bit over 12 dollars.

Connie has a lot of great work especially paintings with vivid color. Stop by her gallery at:
