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.

Door County At Heart

We've been away from Door County for 15 months and counting helping at risk children. I sometimes think about Door County and how beautiful it was. It is way better then Cape Cod or the coast of Maine. I often travel to these places to recapture some of the images and places that I left behind. The lighthouses of Door County are fantastic! I was recently at Acadia National Park the poster child of beauty by the sea. Yes it is pretty with its mountains and ocean, but a 200 foot cliff facing toward Green Bay at sunset will do equal if not better justice for your soul.

On another note taking care of children can be taxing, I miss my freedom to do what I want sometimes. Then I have to get my head on right and remember that making a difference in the lives of others is more valuable then a sunset or a pretty picture.
