  13. What a clear, crisp, cold day you captured. All that snow! Wow! Today it's in the 80's in Dallas. Seems worlds apart, doesn't it?

    We didn't get to Salzburg on our last trip, but it's on our "bucket list"......one day. :D

    Stay warm.....

  17. The could formation in the first photo reminds me of a jumping dog, a scottie dog!

    Those mounds of snow clinging to roofs and railings are amazing.

  28. All that snow! Have to admit I"m a little jealous. Here in Colorado we had a very light snow year, so I'm missing those huge, high drifts a bit!
