SNOW

      We just had a couple of days of snow where we got about 12 cm of snow. That's a lot of snow for us at one time . I know other places get much heavier snow falls.

      It kept me busy shoveling snow a couple of times. However the snow was light , dry and powdery which makes it easy to shovel.

      The snow gives us a very clean fresh look so why not a few photos.


       This photo is for Far Side. She wants people to set up snow sticks so here's my feeble effort at a snow stick. Can you see it? I have 14 in. (35 cm) of snow.

  1. Right now our Interstate highway is closed in the mountain pass from the latest snow storm and multiple spin outs.
    Here in the lowlands we have had snow off and on and are tired of it. At least our snow melts away quickly. Your snow is lovely though.

  3. That is a lot of snow. All the snow that fell over the week has melted here and today and yesterday the sun came out. I like the sunshine I see on your snow.

  6. You don't have to do everything that The Micro Manager tells you to do. Why wasn't she shovelling the snow?

  8. Oh dear. That's too much for me.
    Although this was instructive - I should really take another stab at learning the metric system!

    1. Yes, learn the metric system and then I don't have to go back and look up the English system!

  9. That snow shoveling builds character, doesn't it?! Lovely photos. Take it easy!

    1. The character thing wouldn't get me enthusiastic about shoveling? I guess I'm short on character. The new snow was very bright so don't forget the shades.

    1. I've not been able to ski for a few weeks so I could enjoy the snow.

  11. That's a good snowfall! I love that third shot - the snow looks like a gigantic marshmallow on top of the tank.

    All your photos show the beauty of snow very well. It makes everything bright, at least for awhile.

    1. The snow on top of the barrel could be sliced to show the various snow layers.

  14. My grandboys in Minnesota are on their second snow day in a row -- another 4 day weekend. They are happy but they won't be come June and they are in school making them up. Your snow looks so pretty and fresh, and what a good opportunity for some exercise!

  15. 12 cm. Yup, that's quite a bit of snow! It does look a lot like winter where you are but March is here, so things should start looking better. Hopefully!

  18. Hi Red, I like all the snow with the clear blue sky. I am curious about how long it will be before it's all melted.
