These first photos were taken as the snow was falling - big flakes coming down quickly! The above photo makes summer seem so far away.
I do like the above image because I like the look of the snow on the branches of the shrub in our front yard.
These pine trees are right outside the door from our bedroom to the back patio (and hot tub). I took a close up because it creates the impression of being in a bit of a piney wood.
An hour or so later, the snowy part of the storm began to lift. I really like the image above - so much to see in one image, and the weather creates the effect of natural layers.
I included this image so you get an idea of how windy it was as the storm blew away. Check out the wind sock! Our little yard art of two kitties flying planes (lower left hand corner) were really moving, altho you can't tell that from this photo.
And, just a short time after that, the storm was gone! The above photo is the same as the photo two photos up. We have our beautiful blue skies are back!
In this photo, you can see the last remnants of the clouds that were overhead just a short time ago. And, even with all that snow blowing around, the amount that actually stuck on the ground is really very little. Here's hoping the rest of this New Year's Eve day remains this clear!
