So…in case you were wondering, we did make it out of the mountains on Monday last week. But not before we enjoyed dozens of quiet hours together by a warm crackling fire, watched all 10 episodes of the mini-series “The Pacific”, and had a chance to take some shots of the beautiful aftermath of the storm. (Don’t forget to click to enlarge the pictures.)
I loved these icicles, especially against the blue sky!
Every once in a while I need to set up the tri-pod so that we can have proof that I was actually on our trips.
This is what it looked like after the snow plow came through to clear the long driveway. Our car is buried under the snow there on the right. We still had a little more digging out to do.
This was just crazy! When we walked to the end of the driveway we found this SUV parked in the middle of the road right where we needed to drive to get out. As we walked around trying to figure out why it might have been left there we noticed that the doors were unlocked and the keys were still in it. AND we saw clear evidence that someone (presumably the driver) had taken a pee in the snow by the side of the road. So….what would you guess was the scenario there? We have no idea. Fortunately, when it was time for us to leave the car was gone and we’re hoping that it was driven away by the owner.
This was a view from under a covered patio where the snow and ice from the roof was in the process of sliding off. The ice was really thick, so it’s not a place that you would want to be when it finally landed.
I just love the contrast of the blue sky to the snow covered trees in this one.
I had some roses left from Valentine’s Day and Terry suggested that I take a few pictures of them in the snow. This is one of my favorites.
Thanks for sharing the adventure with us. We had an amazing time!
How do you feel about snow? Do you love it? Do you hate it? Have you ever been snowed in?
