Watching It Snow

This morning I woke to what looks like six inches of snow.  It is in the 20's.  The weather reports predict snow through Tuesday morning could reach as much as one foot.

Then, an arctic blast is expected to follow dropping temps into the single digits.

I am working from home today.  I fed the birds and cleared the side walk.  Later I will clear off the car.  I planned to take a walk but the wind kicked up so I think I will wait until it is a bit calmer.

Wonder if this means we will have a white Christmas?

Visiting the Neighbors

Time seems to be passing faster than I can remember.  Thanksgiving was very cold.  The day before, the day of, and for a few days after it was below zero at dawn.

Today the wind is so strong I could barely open my car door at lunch.  It is cloudy now and looks like snow is falling on the mountains.  

I am glad it is warmer.  The snow that fell before and during Thanksgiving is almost gone here in town.  It is in the high thirties but the wind makes it feel colder.

Ken sent me the above image.  He took it on his walk this morning.  The deer are plentiful in town this year.  These were passing through our street making their daily rounds.

First Snow Removal Day

I woke up to a big surprise this morning.  Looking at the pots in my front yard we must have gotten five to six inches of snow.

It snowed Tuesday and Wednesday, especially in Bozeman but the temps hovered around thirty degrees.  It was in the twenties yesterday morning and twenty this morning.

This is that beautiful light, fluffy, snow.  I took the photo from my office this morning at 8:45 AM.  Now the sun is peeking out.  I am sure the icy roads will be melting quickly.

This was our first snow removal day of the year.  Things were so calm and quiet as I removed the snow from the car and sidewalks.

When I drove through downtown Ennis shop owners were out clearing the sidewalks.

Winter was slower arriving. I wonder what it will be like this year?
