The snow levels depend on only a few degrees of temperature. Last night we got about 4 inches of snow and it’s snowing again tonight. I spent most of the morning with my snow blower and shoveling out a neighbor up the hill, but I love it!
Photos definitely help – even more so on your blog as your images fill the width of my screen and I can see the details of the landscape.
(I follow a couple of blogs that have the tiniest of images and even when I click on them, I don’t see that much more.
I’m a visual person.
I love having four distinct seasons, and grew up loving to see the snow season arrive each year. Not everyone does though. After a very cold winter with lots of snow, many people who moved up here for the beautiful summers put their homes on the market and move further south.
I spent many years away from here, living in the Arizona desert and really missed the snow. Luckily there though it was only a few hours away from the northern Arizona high country where the snow was always deep.
We may have before winter is over. I like rain a lot, but this time of year the land really needs heavy snow in the high country and it’s doing fairly well up there already. The ski areas are starting to do well already and the snow pack is building up. Another foot is expected today and tomorrow at pass level and up to 6 inches in the valleys.
I always like combinations of green plant life with snow or ice. Your photos are lovely. And that last one is particularly interesting. The one section looks like a rock that’s been highly polished. I presume that’s a sheet of smooth ice over it. It’s very interesting.
The weather here now is more like it is in spring. One moment it is snowing, the next, the sum is out. Pretty to see though, and quite warm for this time of year. It will be in the single digits again after a few days though.
