Snowy morning along the river

Snowy morning along the Clark Fork

A sudden storm yesterday, forecast to leave a half inch of snow, left a little more than that. Photo is of the Clark Fork of the Columbia River in northwestern Montana.

    • It is! I’ve learned that when the sky is clear in winter, one has to take advantage of it. Yesterday when the storm came in, it was nearly a white-out, then cleared and got cold overnight.
      I’m fortunate to be able to walk from my house down to the river where this was taken.

    • After all of the smoke we had in the air this summer, that clear air is a wonderful relief, even though it’s cold.

  3. That’s a beautiful scene! I hope you’ll get your usual snow amounts this year. The news of the snow packs shrinking each year is a bit disheartening. So many people rely on it.

    • Yes, I hope the snow pack will be heavier this year too. Last year it was very light. This little snow is pretty but not enough to do much. I haven’t gotten up high yet though to see what’s going on up there. There are a few cars running around with skis on top already.

  4. Hi Montucky, You should print this and put it up on your wall as an 8×10 or larger print. Really spectacular picture! Have a great holiday tomorrow and enjoy your beautiful scenery.

    • Thanks wildlifewatcher. I may have a print made of this one, but I already have more pictures than wall space.

  5. What a beautiful sight to greet your day.
    Such a flawless blue sky too.
    I can almost ‘smell’ the fresh air and it must be so invigorating walking outdoors in it.

    • Yes, it was a beautiful morning with the clear sky and bright new snow. The air temp was 12º F so it felt crisp. It was only a mile walk to get the photo (and a dozen more).

  6. Even though it’s sunny, it looks really cold there. Bright and beautiful though. I don’t know why I bother to say that. You know how I feel about Montana. I should move there!

    • It is very pretty when Arctic air moves in here. Supposed to get down to 2º F for the next two nights. Southeast of here they expect sub zero nights. I’m just about acclimated to the winter temps, so the cold air feels good. I put on a down parka this morning and it was actually too warm for much walking, but it helps keep the camera warm.

    • When the Arctic air flows in it really brightens up the winter!

  9. We call them blue northers here in Texas (and have, historically) for just that reason: the strong north wind following a front clears out the humidity and any smog, and leaves us glorious, blue skies. No snow, though! Only now and then will we get snow: I’ve seen it four or five times since 1973. It’s been days and days of gray here, so it’s a treat to find a little reminder of blue skies to come.

    • I hadn’t heard of blue northers, but I can understand the name. We get this Arctic air several times during most winters and they bring in about a week of sub-zero temperatures a beautiful blue skies.
