  2. Stunning! Such a beautiful blue contrasted against the dazzling white snow. Merry Christmas to you also and best wishes for a wonderful 2015. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks Jane. Our days have for so long been gray and rainy, but today I took a chance and went up high just to get into the snow and the sky opened up. Three hours of hiking through scenery like this renewed my soul!

  3. Beautiful! Such bright, sunny days you have.


    Comment by Sue — December 22, 2014 @ 11:23 pm

    • This was the first real sun here in weeks, but it was very welcome! Not strong yet but I feel better knowing that the days are getting longer and the sun will start warming up a bit too. There was a light wind above about 5000 feet which brought the chill factor down a bit, but even the chill felt good.

  4. Merry Christmas, Montucky, from rainy Georgia.

    • Merry Christmas, Malcolm! Here we’re trying to get past the rain and get into winter. To do that today I had to get up around 6000 feet.

  6. Thank you, and wishing you a wonderful Christmas too! Thank you for your wonderful photos which bring a breath of the Montana mountains right across the Atlantic!

  7. Lovely shots in the spirit of the season!

    • Thanks! These were at a little higher elevation, but I think by Christmas we will have snow in the valley too.

  8. And what great photos of the season! Merry Christmas to you and your family! Looks like I’ll be only dreaming of a white Christmas here – prediction of temps around 50. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    • Merry Christmas to you! It was looking like this would be the first Christmas here in several decades when there was no snow, but snow is predicted for Christmas eve.

  9. We’re in dense fog here, waiting for a front to bring us some blue skies. Since we’ll not have such beautiful, crisp snow to go with them, it’s a special pleasure to see your photos. Merry Christmas to you and yours, Terry. I hope Santa brings you a whole bagful of opportunities for great photos in the New Year!

  11. Thank you Montucky, and the same to you!

  12. I was just reminded by a blurb on Turner Classic Movies that the 1947 musical “Finian’s Rainbow” is set in the state of Missitucky. Judging by the two pictures in your post, I’m sure Missitucky isn’t as mountainous and doesn’t get as much snow as the Montucky you’ve shown here today.

    • We are just getting started with our winter snow. The snow depth where these photos were taken was about a foot and a half. By Christmas morning, that could almost double.

  13. Just pouring rain here…ha ha.


    Comment by 2ndhalfolife — December 23, 2014 @ 12:05 pm

    • We will have a little rain tonight, turning to snow later, for sure tomorrow night.


      Comment by montucky — December 24, 2014 @ 12:45 am

  14. What a wonderful snow covered scene, Terry.
    (now, if only we got snow in the Melbourne…sigh!).

    Hope you and your family have a relaxing and enjoyable Christmas and the best of health in 2015.


    Comment by Vicki — December 23, 2014 @ 5:05 pm

    • I’m afraid snow and Melbourne would not get along well together. Here in rural areas, snow is natural and we are all used to it and prepared for it. There is always a struggle in the cities where the incompetence and cumbersomeness of government make things more difficult than they should be.

      I hope you have a pleasant and peaceful Christmas and that you will have improved health in the coming year! I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing your photos and reading your thoughts this year and look forward to much more!

  15. Your posts and photos this year have been such a pleasure to read and to follow…Have a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful new year, may all of your days be special.
