So Athens got slammed with eight inches of snow earlier this week, and since it never snows that much here, we decided to make the most of it. Just about everything in town got shut down as the roads were really icy all day.

I decided to go with a more playful than practical outfit in the snow, since there are never any opportunities around here to shoot photos in a wintry landscape. Despite the nasty outdoors, I kept warm in my bright red vintage dress, which was perfect for keeping my spirits up during the day in. I like the dress's color contrast to the snow.

We live right next to a cemetery so we trekked over there to look at some of the graves. Just walking a few hundred yards from our home made us feel like pioneers or astronauts walking into an undiscovered world. As much as I am not a snow fan, I am a fan of taking photos of ordinary things transformed by snow's creation/destruction.
