  2. Pretty, I envy you. Supposed to be 70 here in KC tomorrow. Blech.

    • 70° would be too warm. Our current conditions are: light snow in the air, 8 inches that fell today on the ground and current temp 22°. Just about where it should be!

  3. I’d say… was that at a lower level? Very nice photo!!

    • Yes, valley level, just up the road a bit. Can’t get into the high country without chaining up, and there’s a winter storm brewing up there tonight anyway.

  4. Oh what a gorgeous photo! And I hate snow but that is stunning………….

    • This snow is a lovely reward for getting through a very hot and dry late summer. We are expecting several very cold nights coming up and the 8 inches of snow will be a wonderful insulation on the roof tops!

  5. I’m glad you still had some leaves for the snow to pose on.

    Here in Texas the forecast is for a high temperature near 80° tomorrow. We’re in the same country, but you’d hardly know it based on climate.

    • I guess we are about at the extreme ends of the lower 48 as far as climate is concerned, aren’t we. Now if there were only a convenient and inexpensive way to get back and forth!

  6. Very pretty! We have had the one light snow, and now since, but I know more will be coming. This has been a warm November with many days in the 60’s and this weekend it is supposed to be in the 50’s.

    • We were quite warm until recently. This morning it was 10° with about 8 inches of new snow. Beautiful, though!

  7. Looks like winter is there to stay! Hope you have a happy Thanksgiving! I don’t think they eat turkey here in Argentina! Stay warm!

    • Well, we may relapse into warmer weather between now and Christmas as some times happens. I hope you have a happy Thanksgiving too! It must be different spending it in another country.

  8. Simply beautiful. I love snow in small doses.

    • We have a little sun this morning and it’s gorgeous on the snow. I really like snow but not so much the sub-zero temperatures when they pay us a visit, but we are well equipped for both.

  9. I look forward to more of your snow photos!


    Comment by Roberta — November 19, 2011 @ 1:05 pm

    • I will post many more I’m sure. This is our first meaningful snow this year in the valleys.

  10. Gorgeous! Love snow pictures!


    Comment by Mama's Empty Nest — November 19, 2011 @ 1:06 pm

    • Thanks! All of the forecasts are for a heavy snow year and I’m looking forward to it!

  11. Awaiting snowflake photos….


    Comment by Kim — November 19, 2011 @ 2:35 pm

    • I’ve thought about that, but haven’t spent any time trying yet. I suspect that it might be difficult. Some time this winter I’ll give it a shot.


      Comment by montucky — November 20, 2011 @ 12:01 am

  12. Very pretty transition photo, must be bittersweet to have autumn pretty much over, though, isn’t it?


    Comment by Candace — November 19, 2011 @ 4:27 pm

    • Yes it is. The snow is pretty and exciting but it sure hampers access to the trails, at least for hiking. I look forward to having enough for some snow shoeing though.


      Comment by montucky — November 20, 2011 @ 12:03 am

  13. Very artistic photo. I looked at it for a long time and admired how beautiful shot You captured.

    • Thank you. The seasons create so many beautiful scenes, large and small. There is always something that stand out.

  14. Truly beautiful photos

  15. Super, I love the light, composition, detail…well everything about it!


    Comment by dhphotosite — November 21, 2011 @ 10:59 am

    • Thanks! This was just a tiny piece of a large hillside. It was just set up for a photo!
