Come Back, White Witch ...

I'm pretty sure this lovely (and very scary) lady in white might be responsible for the full week of wintery whiteness we just had in our town.

 

 
We were encased in fog and sub-30 temps for days, with the trees completely coated in white frost. Gorgeous! A little winter wonderland.

 
Head a few miles down the hill, and we'd discover blue, sunny skies and temps that were a few degrees warmer.

 
It just so happened that - in the midst of all this wintery whiteness - we saw the Oregon Children's Theatre's production of 'The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe'. It was like our little city was Narnia ... minus the Turkish Delights.


The actress playing the White Witch did her job well ... scaring the bejeezus out of our poor daughter. I felt so bad. She was a year+ about the recommended minimum age, but I had to peel her off my arm at the end. She's used to Playhouse Disney and OPB ... not Narnia! :-) It was only because the friendly actress suggested the above picture that K got anywhere close to her!

Today, it's gray and rainy outside ... and I want our winter wonderland back! :-) Oh, White Witch ... where are you?! You can bring the whiteness back ... but maybe leave your evil scariness at the castle. :-)

Hey Kelly! SUCH gorgeous photos! I wish I had your talent--or maybe just your camera? :-)

And P.S. Yes, it looks a lot like Narnia--C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia is a fave of mine (and my oldest read it so many times, a teacher had to tell him that enough was enough! But seriously, can you ever get enough of Narnia? (I think not.)
