I figure any title that includes the word WINTER with the word PAST will get somebody's attention. Two of my sisters live in northeastern cities, and they are ready to throw in the snowball!
But first, a follow-up note from two weeks ago -- our new grandson has appeared, and all is well. However, to refer back to my comment then, about "no small feet," I 'd have to say that even these two new small feet aren't that small.... WELCOME, WILL!

Next, I do have a few more winter shots to share -- sort of under the theme that other things happen in the winter besides just snow falling.

Two years ago, a car slipped off the road we call Mauk Ridge, and slid down into a small pond. Luckily, the driver was able to get out early, unhurt. This photo was featured in the Ashland Daily Independent, thanks to digital and to our electricity staying on during the storm. I couldn't have delivered a photo by car. Well, of course, it was also thanks to John Flavell who is their Chief Photographer.
Then there are my trips to England, where I have family. The first photo shows the garden there, in December, two years ago. Winters can be chilly and damp, but, unlike this year, snow is usually unexpected.
