blue snow






Late afternoon…..4:10 pm on Wednesday.
The lowering sun shone across the field of snowdrifts.  The dimpled snow is from all the rain we received on Monday night.  Before that it was smooth and sparkly.  Now it's crusty and icy.


It's been a cold week.  The wind has been howling for 3 days and tonight it's gone.  Maybe we'll sleep better.


We have more rain coming on the weekend. 
A lot…..25-35mm.  
I guess that's better than 20 cm. of snow.
Or…. is it.

Another January thaw…..the second in a week.
Not good.
But it might melt the ice on the driveway.


I got out two days in a row this week.  I felt like I was released from winter's grasp although it was extremely cold.  Tomorrow I have laundry to catch up on and cookies to bake and a blogpost to prepare for Saturday.  I hope you'll come back.

I hope you've had a good week and enjoy the upcoming weekend.  Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit.

Blessings,

Pamela

  9. That blue snow definitely represents the mood of the week, I would imagine, with so many being housebound, missing their daily walks or just stepping outside for some fresh air. Great photos, Pamela! Have a lovely weekend!

    We have a lovely sunny day here today after all the wind and rain since Christmas which has caused so much damage all over the UK. Have a lovely weekend, love Jackie in Surrey, UK.

  16. A blog post to prepare for Saturday? I like the sound of that. It's warmed up here and is snowing right now, but is supposed to get above zero tomorrow. I have some ice that needs to melt, too.

    Your dimpled, blue snow photos turned out really well, Pam. I love your views.

  17. I'll always come back. You have had some rugged weather this week! Getting the boys at the bus stop has proven to be a brisk business, but that's all I know of being out.

    Remember when they used to say that there's no such thing as blue snow. Fools. =D

    If blogger allows me back on my own blog, I am also featuring some blue snow. Until then, I'm just visiting blogs and enjoying the sights.

  19. Pretty shots Pamela! God is creative in changing the colors of what seems to be the ordinary for us Canadians! Hope you will be thawing out soon!

  20. Those are lovely photos Pamela. We are heading into a few days of milder temperatures 0 to +7 Celsius but that will also come with rain. We are hoping some of the ice melts from the driveway and path and around the mailbox (driver can't get in to deliver the mail). Have a good weekend.

  21. Hello Pamela! I thought I would stop in and immediately found myself admiring your beautiful winter photography! Just beautiful photos capturing what may be too cold to stop and linger near lately!!

    I hope your weekend is warm and sunny!

    XO,

  24. I wish we had still had some snow. Our measly snowfall is long gone. We're back in the 40's and 50's. These are beautiful snow scenes!
