Snowstorm!

Hello readers~greetings from snowy Michigan!
Around here we often say “wait a minute….the weather will change”.    And often, what is forecasted in the weather report does not happen.  So it was a surprise to see more snow than what was predicted when we awoke this morning!  We got about 10″ of snow and under that was a coating of ice.  It was not a nice commute for those who had to be somewhere early.

By 10 a.m. the sun was melting the snow and it was sliding off rooftops, trees, and cars.  In its wake, the storm left many trees, branches and power lines down, and thousands without power.

But at 8 a.m. this morning, it was very pretty.  Everything was coated softly with white.  There was a stillness; a silence that comes with new snow.   The sun was just coming up behind the trees in our woods, and I could not resist a chance to capture that “fairyland” look.  Come along with me~

a snowy overhead branch and a snowy tree still hanging on to its leaves.............

almost a heart "arch"

catching the sun's rays.........

the glow of the sun through the woods, dusted with white..........

Thanks for stopping by…..come visit again~

    • Yes it is amazing….I love the patterns, sculptures, light and shadows that are created when the snow is fresh and new. But then when it’s dirty and slushy, I just want to get rid of it! lol Thanks for commenting….

    • Oh yes. It doesn’t take long for the icky “sludge” to drop off the car in the garage, and the gray cement-looking snow along the road to spoil the pristine look we have now. 😉

I'd love to hear from you~
