A dusting on the hills

A little snow banding as winter approaches.


  1. The animals must be eating frantically.

  2. I noticed a few wind reports last night that were more than impressive — especially in the eastern half of the state. I think it was Lewistown that had 71 mph. I’ll take a little snow over that kind of wind any day. I always enjoyed the first, light snows. By the time they came, the landscape usually was looking pretty bedraggled, especially the fields, and it really made things much nicer.

    • The wind was pretty light here but we were still out of power all night. I woke when the power went out at about midnight, looked at the warm glow from the wood stove and went right back to sleep. Northwest of us there was some wind damage and lots of people out of power.

      A friend from Washington told me that there were gusts of 110mph at Snoqualomie last night and western Washington had high winds, heavy rain, flooding and mudslides.

      This little valley in which I live is indeed a good place to be when inclement weather visits because we are sheltered by mountain ranges close by on both sides. The winds are fierce on the high ridges, but fairly docile in the valley.

  3. We are now getting snow on the mountain tops and as the temperature drops it is working its way down to us…I do love seeing snow in the mountains.

    • That’s what it’s doing here too. Next week though there is supposed to be a front coming through that will bring some pretty good snow. It’s about time!

    • I liked it. Soon the terrain will be all white I suppose. This was just a local band of snow (a teaser).

    • Especially with a little blue sky which will be in short supply soon.

  8. That’s quite a stark landscspe. Winter snow will make it even more do. Wonderful photo!

    • That’s an interesting area. At times during the winter it can be extremely cold there and at other times those south slopes will be bare of snow. The highway is always treacherous during winter because there are shady spots that are ice covered. One winter morning I watched a snowplow slide nearly off the road there on a curve.

    • That little snow covered hill could be seen for about 20 miles from up the prairie.

  13. Love this time of year when you get the light snow on the tops:)

  14. I absolutely LOVE this photo. There’s something about the rolling hills … and with the blue sky and low hanging clouds, the fence and gate … it’s a photo I want to walk right into …
