Oh lucky, lucky us.
But the snow and ice do offer up some fun photo opportunities. And I know the snow will be good for the farmers, so after a year of drought I really am grateful we had snow.
Here is a picture of a branch in our yard. We have actually had a few moments of beginning melting during which I tried to capture a picture of falling drops. I shot and shot and shot and shot, but the mid-air droplet eluded me.
Below is the fence in a school yard about a block from my house. I thought the pattern and color was interesting, and that the ice added a special something.
Surely any day now the melting will start in full force. Then colorful spring flowers, sun, and bugs will awaken and be awaiting my camera.
