After an overnight low of -5° the sun came out for a short time this morning to highlight the pure white snow and the temperature shot all of the way up to 0°!

    • Thanks JP! That mountain is a landmark for me because usually our weather comes in just to the left of it or sometimes right over the top.

    • One of the nice things about an Arctic front when it comes through here is very clear air. There was still a few light clouds today which kept the sky from being deep blue, but a pretty day overall. Thanks for the visit, Amber!

      • By the way, our temperatures are plummeting low here now. Minus nine in our locality and some 30 miles away minus 18.

  4. Just enough beautiful snow to look great, and not enough to be a pain on the holiday.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family

  8. That first photo is breathtaking and as unbelievably crisp as the air must have been. I’ve got to get my camera settings like yours, maybe I can mess with it this weekend. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Terry.

  10. Hi Montucky, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family too! I am virtually enjoying all of your snow. We may (doubtful) get a tiny Wintery Mix very early tomorrow morning but if we get anything it will be that ice pellet type of sleet and not true snow. I love your pictures today! Have an excellent holiday!

    • I wondered if the cold air would make it down into your area. I’m glad that you didn’t/won’t get the sub-zero stuff. We’re through with that now and it has warmed up to the teens.

  15. that top photo is amazing! How beautiful – and ooooh – makes me shiver to think of it “warm” at 0 degrees!! I think I’ll stay here with the 3 degrees at wind chill… (Thought it is warming up to the 40’s now! We’re having a heatwave!!) ;o)

    • We have warmed up now too. With your furnace problem, it’s a good thing it did warm up there, although I remember that 40 can be very cold there with the humidity. We are up to 27 now and getting lots more snow, enough to be a bit concerned for the travelers. There was a break yesterday though and hopefully most made it home OK after Thanksgiving.

  17. Wonderful images… remind me of growing up in Wyoming and Montana… today it’s sunny and blustery here after a morning downpour (with thunderstorms) dumped a bunch of water on us. (might have to go out in the garden for a bit to see what I can see)

    • I’m happy to say, Tory, that at least some of Montana is much as it was in those older days. I have seen those scenes ever since the 40’s, and so much has remained the same there.
