Sherbrooke Street in Winter

A wintry, turn-of-the-twentieth-century view of  horse-drawn carriages on Montreal’s magnificent Sherbrooke St.

There’s been a lot of snow recently not only where I live near Montreal,  but also in my husband’s home town of Milan, Italy, but the reason I decided to publish this postcard today was in response to my friend Lucie LeBlanc Consentino’s latest post

What was my wish at Christmas?

How can anyone not love snow???

  1. I love snow. Growing up in Massachusetts, I simply am accustomed to having a snowy winter. When we moved to Delaware in 1999, I was quite disappointed by the lack of significant snowstorms. To them, an inch of snow was reason for panic.

    Now that I have moved away from Delaware, they got quite the blizzard this weekend, along with the rest of the East Coast! It simply isn’t fair!

    I will only be here in Korea for this one winter (and then hopefully it will be on to Italy, where I have family, or Germany), and while there have been two dustings, I have yet to be impressed.

    I love snow!

  2. I would love to have some snow instead of all of this rain, but. So beautiful. I loved the posts on tobogganing too.
