Snow storm moving in from the southwest


  1. Looks like you already got snow before this. Brrr!!

  2. Since we were visiting family in Maryland at the same time the blizzard was there, I want to see more snow or incoming storms only in pictures.

    • When we get those storms I’ll be happy to provide the pictures. Of course, we are well prepared for them here. I felt bad for those folks who had to go through the recent storms in the east!

      • We think Washington, D.C should have done better than it did. While we were outside shoveling our cars out, another guy and I thought each senator and representative needed to grab a shovel and help get the city opened back up.

  3. It seems so real – the approaching storm.

    • I think storms are beautiful, especially snow storms. This one provided a nice contrast between blue sky and snow filled sky.

  4. It looks chilly but still very beautiful. West from me people are having red dust storms. What a contrast! 🙂

  5. It looks like there was a lot of power in those clouds. I hope they increased the snow depth up in the mountains.

    • They did. At a ski area about 20 air miles from here in the direction from where that storm came there was 105 inches on the ground already.

  6. Looks very nice…and promising. How much did it leave on the ground?

    • We were on the very edge of it and only got about an inch. I heard that about 80 miles to the south they had 6 to 8 inches last night.

  7. Enjoy!!!

    • Yes! I’ll try to get into some new snow today. There’s supposed to be a couple of inches falling today again.

  8. Looking good! This winter has been unusual for us with not much snowfall. We were spared the winter storm that hit the East Coast so heavily — it was east and south of us. And we had spring-like weather last weekend – 60 degrees! Ol’ Punxsutawney Phil (he’s not far from us) predicted this morning that we’ll have an early spring and I’m inclined to believe him.

    • We may have an early spring here too, but here that can mean a lot of snow clear through April.

  9. Love the contrast between the bright blue sky and the dark storm clouds. Storms approaching are always a unique glimpse of Mother Nature.

    • Perhaps that’s why I like stormy weather; the variety and the contrast. It always gets my attention.

  10. I love the contrasts in the clouds — the variety. And I’m glad to hear that the snow levels are increasing, even if yours aren’t quite to your taste yet. As you say, there’s plenty of winter left.

    • It’s a treat to see some blue sky and that variety of clouds. We had a few more minutes of sun again today and a little more snow last night. I’m enjoying the variety now.

  11. I’m not envious 🙂

  12. That snow storm looks ominous. Hope you were all tucked up safe inside during it’s presence.

    • I didn’t stay inside, but I dressed well for it. Snowstorms can be so beautiful!
