Just a Little Different from Yesterday!

Overnight we had a little bit of freezing rain that changed to "powdered sugar" snow. That made every soft flake stick to every surface. Even though the wind picked up this afternoon, the trees are still coated. These are my two favorite pictures from the day.

I did a lot of writing this afternoon and evening... and if you didn't see Joan Young Begins a New Adventure- Writes First Mystery Novel, feel free to take a peek.

Great photos Joan, the trees look wonderful with their overcoats.

indeed u could see something out from the clouds.

That's what it looked like here yesterday. It's always so pretty when the trees are all covered like that.
The sky in that second picture is gorgeous

Winter is a great time for tree photography!

These are indeed very attractive scenes. You probably have more snow than we do right now. It snowed so much here in Iowa last year that there was extensive flooding when spring came. I doubt that's going to be a problem this year.

I love it when the world looks as if it is covered with powder sugar! If only it tasted that way. ;)

I see so much snow at my place too.

The snow is so white but warm on my computer screen.

betchai- I'm just me... don't make me too special or I'll be sure to disappoint

Carol- even the scraggliest trees and bushes can look beautiful that way

wenn- we just had a little bit of spotty sun in the afternoon

Ann- I'm surprised we got the same storm

Dennis- but you don't seem to have winter in your world

Ratty- not here either. This was only about 2 inches of snow

Lin- I like that too. But it's hard on the trees

rainfield! You are hilarious! It sounds like one of those trick questions... when can snow be hot?
