I Can’t Find My Jeep! A Tale of Distortion, Winter Style

The word of the week is “Distorted“, according to the Daily Blog’s weekly photo challenge.  What does “distorted” mean to me?  This week, it means this:

Not bad - for a few hours worth of accumulation, that is.

…and this:

Got to love Chicago winters!

In the first picture, you can see a half-foot of snow covering the ground (as well as a good portion of my Jeep).  Snow is falling in the background, ‘whiting out’ the scenery and distorting the view – both the observer’s view, and the view of anyone attempting to drive on unplowed roads.  The second picture is of my backyard, and at first glance looks like a simple photo of a yard hidden beneath ample amounts of snow.  However, the photo is slightly distorted by the flakes of snow dotting the foreground, hampering an otherwise clear view of our weekly snow accumulation.

As April looms closer, so does the anticipated beginning of the spring season.  Despite that fact (or maybe in spite of it), winter continues to distort my view of spring, covering my vision with a blanket of white precipitation and hiding those much sought-after signs of life blooming anew that each year brings us.  Of course, considering how much I love the snow, I would have to say that this is a “distortion” well worth experiencing!
