The snow was mostly gone by late afternoon.

  1. Those are breathtaking snowy scenes, Tim. It’s been cold here, too. We got a little snow yesterday morning, but it didn’t stick. It was 20 degrees at dawn today.

  2. Oh Tim, you are a wonder with a camera. You open the doors to reflection. And this is the thought that came to me from Lewis Carroll, Through a Looking-Glass – “I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”

    • Thanks for the wonderful comment and Lewis Carroll quote. This snow certainly fits Carroll’s description as it was light and airy, gently hugging and kissing all it covered.

  3. Wow, I am a sucker for a good snow picture – is that really skunk tracks? – luckily we do not have a lot of those in our parts (somehow the coyotes are able to evade their sprays and take them out – thinking clothespins on their noses). Really like the fog coming off the water.

    • We have a lot less skunks than before the owls moved in. GHOs are one of the few active predators of skunks. We don’t have as many raccoons these days, either. The pair of skunks we have left are in skunk mating season. When they get to mating they get all excited and let loose the old stinkeroos. “¡Fuchi capesta! My eyes are burning!” Other than that, they are good wild neighbors and help keep the grubs and other bad insects in check.
