I've been visiting Greenfield Park a lot lately. It's one of my favorite Milwaukee County Parks, and it's nearby. So, I can be there within just a few minutes. In every type of weather it welcomes me. And I know its nooks and crannies, walking paths, lagoon-side and woodland, well.
As predicted, we did get that big winter storm late this last week. It packed in a lot of heavy snow over a couple days, and finished up by leaving in its wake subzero temperatures, and trees encased in sparkling snow and ice. Standing outside for a moment you could hear the sound of the ice crackling on the tree limbs.
As the winter season progresses, bundle up and visit your favorite local park, or walking trail and wonder at the breathtaking scene before you. If walking on ice and snow isn't for you, just take a drive, and enjoy the view from your car. Eventually, the weather will turn, and the ice and snow will melt. And that bit of magic will be gone. But worry none, as something just as lovely will come after.
