Beautiful! I love the gentle quiet of a winter walk in the woods. ❄️

I was in Austria for about 1 hour last summer 🤣 - we were visiting friends who live on the Swiss/Austrian border and we went into Austria just briefly. It was really pretty. That’s probably much more west compared to where you are, though.

Such a pretty winter scene! Now I think I need some photos from people who live in a warm climate after all of this snow…! 😎

Oh really? Do you remember which town you went to? Was it Bregenz? I've been there. I'm much further east, practically on the other side of the country, but then, it's not such a big country. 🤣

Yes! Bregenz! Most of the trip was in Switzerland, but one day went through Bregenz and to Lindau (across the German border).

Austria may be small but it’s still much larger than New Hampshire! 😆

True that. But then, it's a state while Austria is our entire COUNTRY. 😅🤣😂

I spent my high school years in Berkeley, CA. One year (?1998) we went over for Christmas, and it snowed when we were in Jack London Square! I think that was the first snow I saw in the Bay Area.

Now I live on the foot of the Pennines in the north of England (pretty much in Darkshire, if we but knew its boundaries) and while we do not get snow like we and they used to, it does snow at least a bit every winter. It is driving in snow that I really really hate. Especially on windy little Pennine roads at night. Every few years snow closes even the motorway and tons of people get stranded!

Here we have two seasons, dry season and rainy season. It lasts for six month each, and Christmas means it's raining all day :xmas

24 degrees already feels like a freezer to me :rofl

and -37? LOL. :snowing That's what my city in Canada had last week up until Sunday. I think that everyone should experience that at least once...

But we did have nice temperatures and a brown Christmas. A tropical Christmas makes no sense to me. It's wrong on a number of levels for me.

I agree 100% about driving in snow! The only thing worse than driving in snow is driving in freezing rain. Sounds like a really pretty place to live, though, when it's not snowing. :)

Wow, I'm not sure what I would do if it rained every day for 6 months straight (or the opposite either...no rain for 6 months)! It must feel amazing when the other season finally comes!

How on earth did I miss this thread and all the wonderful winter photos?
In my part of England we get some snow most years but it doesn't usually last long and for photos you have to get up early before the sun melts it off the trees. Since this thread is called The Mill at Milton I thought I'd post a couple from The Mill at Willsbridge, which is a ten minute walk from my suburban home. They were taken ten years ago, and I got up early(ish) that day.

@Darkshirelass, you can post photos by opening a normal post dialogue that you use to write an entry or reply then drag and drop your image in the window. The default is an attachment but you can scroll down and click on "place inline" to put it with your text.

Another pic I took this past weekend. My hometown in the snow with the alpine foothills in the background.

And these I took this morning on my way to work. This is Vienna, near the river Danube and Danube Island (where I work).

I live in New Hampshire, which is in the northeastern United States. Nothing too special to say about my town, but we have lots of nice parks, trails, and forests around us.

Right now it's winter, so we have snow, ice, and cold. And skiing! (Tip your head for this photo...I can't figure out how to rotate it! :rofl ) (Rotated. Merry)

In the summer, we like to drive to the coast, where there are beaches and beautiful towns and harbors on the Atlantic Ocean.

New Hampshire looks wonderful!! I'd love to visit especially the northeastern coast of the US one day. Also Maine!

Magda, I simply love the landscape of the moors!
