The things I like about snowstorms are: 1) the approach and anticipation, 2) watching it occur, and 3) the aftermath. So, I guess I like everything about them.
Mind you, I live in a place where the power can’t go out, because we have a solar array with battery storage, plus diesel generator backup to that as well. And we walk to work, just a short distance. We are off the grid and self sufficient. We stay stocked up on food and are nourished even further with some of the most beautiful scenery imaginable.
Natural Bridges National Monument in southeast Utah is way out there in the middle of nowhere. Even today visitors stop in amazed (sometimes uncomfortable) with how far things are around here. It can be a haven along the long lonely but spectacular road that is Utah Highway 95 between Blanding and Hanksville.
It’s the dead of winter here. Few visitors arrive. But those that do are amazed. I am still amazed, too, and it’s my second winter here.
