Photo a Day Challenge


It’s winter time in Wisconsin

And the gentle breezes blow

Seventy miles an hour

At twenty-five below.


Oh, how I love Wisconsin

When the snow’s up to your butt

You take a breath of winter

And you nose gets frozen shut.


Yes, the weather here is wonderful

So I guess I’ll hang around

I could never leave Wisconsin

‘Cause I’m frozen to the ground

  8. That says it all…we lived in Minnesota for 8 years. Traded the leaf rake for the snow shovel. Now that we live in California I can enjoy the snow from afar. We are actually getting some rain to (maybe) take care of the drought.

    I like the text of the song “Winter in Wisconsin”; many years ago, when I was young, I had a penfriend in Milwaukee/Wisconsin, and the words of this song remember me of that time … Your picture underlines the meaning of “wintertime” very well.
