“Cozy” winter days…

It’s 12:01 PM on 12/12/10 and it’s still snowing.  I woke up this morning and thought that somehow I had been transported to the top of Vinson Massif in Antarctica.  After watching the morning show, I finally trudged out through the snow.  It was wet, cold, but yet so beautiful.  A Kodak moment was coming my way, as some would say.  But, my question is: Why do people think that the most damp, coldest and colorless days are “cozy”?  It’s a word that comes up a lot when talking about big blizzards.  Why don’t we say “That 80 degree Saturday was so cozy!  I didn’t have to close the windows all day!”?  Couldn’t that be cozy?  Winter is stealing coziness from summer.  Poor summer.  

I still feel like I need to take some pictures but I feel I need to add some color to all this white.  Yes, the white is beautiful, but what about the color?  I guess I could take some pics of yellow snow, but that just doesn’t have quite the rainbow-beautiful I was going for.  How do you capture all of the white without some contrast of color?  I think I am going to go try to catch a white (or yellow) Kodak moment now.  I’ll upload pictures later if I get anything good.

Colorful in a world of white,
