warm in cold wotw splash

As we enter the new year, we are celebrating with more wallpapers. This is the beginning of a seven month climb into the Wallpaper of the Week section. If you are keeping close tabs on the installments, we are trying a new platform. Now, readers are encouraged to send in their excellent wallpapers for consideration in the post. We feel like this will further engage our readership and help everyone feel more connected to the site.

With the new format in mind, there are potentially hundreds of submissions that may come any given week. I make it a point to look through the images, but sometimes it is less timely than others. I appreciate everyones’ interest in the section and hope you look forward to it each week…


Currently, the US is in a solid block of ice. Snow storms are disrupting travel, even some of my CES contacts will not be able to make it to the first few days of the show. Although I am a big fan of winter wallpapers, it seems a warm streak would be appreciated. The weather outside is frightful, but the wallpaper images this week are sure to warm you up. The following four images were submitted by dedicated iDB reader, Matthew Clewley. Thanks, Matt!

    • Kenrick Fernandes

      i live here in india in a place where we don’t have snow. ofcorse i can go to a places here which do have snow. But that view outside your house is beautiful. I mean i know it actually sucks to be there and i’m here on the other side saying how beautiful it is.. but i wish i was there. Your probably tired of going through this day in and day out.. lol.

        Thanks man. It does look nice, but let me tell you, it’s not like that all the time. Just yesterday there was no snow at all. It was cold and the grass was green 😀 today it will get to -16 degrees Ferentheit and thought out the whole week it will snow.
        Yeah I’ve gotten tired of it cause I had to shovel my driveway three times today which was crazy and there’s still about 4 inches of fresh powder.
        I wouldn’t mind going to India, to a beach, pop open some sprite and just lay there in the hot sand 😀

      • Kenrick Fernandes

        you don’t have to come to india and do that… you can definitely do the same in Miami or something. ^_^
        Tell me, during such heavy blizzards how are the communications lines over there. Do the cellular connections work just fine or do they act up during such times. Merry christmas and happy new year Matt to you and your family.

      • They work just fine during blizzards. Never had an issue in Iowa.

      • Matt

        Yeah their just fine. Thanks, you too

    “Because there is nothing like staring at a
    wallpaper to take away those winter chills”

  • Noaaahh

    These are great! I’d be happy to see these kind of images every week – I’m not saying the others are bad, I prefer these!
