Snow on Its Very Best Behavior

Longtime readers of this blog may have noticed over the years that I’m not a fan of snow----unless it behaves.

By golly, this winter’s snow has behaved much better than usual.

This year's snow falls in moderation, just enough to leave a stunning landscape, not so much as to make us kill our bodies opening pathways.

Yesterday’s overnight snow behaved especially well. Twas done by the time we went outside.  It and its clouds moved on and left us with a full day of pristine views.

Plowing and even shoveling this snow turned out to be easy and actually a bit enjoyable.

That left time and good enough roads to drive around our neighborhood and those that neighbor us, like Oden and Sunnyside.

Ahhhh! Twas SO gorgeous and SO worth beholding.

Yep, I really liked yesterday’s snow.
Did not complain a bit, all day, about the snow, that is.  The broken dryer belt?  Now, that’s a different story.

I am gonna complain right at this very minute, though, cuz someone just posted on Facebook that her photographer friends need to be out there taking pictures, RIGHT NOW.
I looked out the window, and, indeed, she is right.
On this cold, crisp morning, the mountain to our west is deep blue and white with a vast hot pink backdrop.

Sometimes blog posting gets in the way of getting out there and capturing some more of the natural gifts we are given when Mother Nature’s in a good and creative mood.

Oh well, hope you enjoy the album from yesterday’s outdoor adventures.

And, remember, if you want to truly enjoy the images, click twice and they’ll enlarge.

Happy Tuesday. 


Just a brief comment about CB. 

When I first brought him home, my brother said his stripe looked like a fly swatter.

 Everyone agreed.

I think that observation may have hurt CB's sensitive feelings.

For some mysterious reason, over the past couple of months, the brown spot has been forming right in the middle of the swatter.

I don't know how brown it's gonna get, but it may minimize the fly-swatter characterization.

Whatever the case, it's an interesting phenomenon.
