A Cold Morning

It was 26 this morning and the fountain froze up. This is the progress of the defrosting. Looks like it’s going to be nice here today after rain yesterday!

A Quick Snow Storm

Just a few pictures of a snow fall we had. It started in the afternoon and as the day went on, the winds picked up and visibility got very low. It was nice to be in a warm house. The next day the sun was out and the snow coat made everything bright and clean.

A Storm & A Rainbow
