First Snow

The last week has been filled with snow preceded by below normal temps. I guess winter is officially here in the Pacific Northwest. So far we have surpassed last year's snowfall but that doesn't mean we are having a particular bad winter so far, we just had an extremely mild winter last year. Just a few goofy pictures, nothing really pretty. Maybe those will come later.
My yard used to be here, just saw it a few weeks ago
I may not see my yard art until Spring

Making my daughter and husband work for me

They say we down here in the bayou country will not get any snow this winter and the winter will be dryer than usual. Bummer, I like the rain and an occasional snow. Interesting pics. I used to do this you know. Never had a fancy rig but I got my shots once in a while. I used to know the northwest. Got some pics from there to prove it. Have a good day, lass.

I like snow pictures. They seem to reduce everything to a common denominator, simplify a complicated world, Make the present moment important and each other. I like your snow pictures: Your yard is still there, It's getting a facelift, undergoing a renewal. And look at those giant mushrooms alongside the house, I love those. That scene of your daughter and husband shoveling snow, everything reduced to black and white, except the crossing sign, making what might have been a commonplace photo, a piece of art. I like your pictures.

It's just a different kind of yard art now - and quite lovely!

I love the pictures of your visit to Leavenworth - absolutely gorgeous, especially Icicle Lake and the misty Cascades!
