I went out to make some photos and it happened to be snowing. It was windy and almost everything was covered with snow. I thought the river would be an interesting subject. It was not as good as an outing I originally thought it would be. At least, I got a good workout out of it.
I decided last minute to go to the park and made some photos. I drove the park earlier and found out that the access road to the park was open. It was chained a few weeks ago. The weather was nice and the light was good.
I went to a surprise birthday party for a dear friend. Their kitchen is facing west and got this open view to the neighbor's land. I assumed the gorgeous sunset view is almost a daily occurrence there.
One of the parks that I drove by quite often before but had never stopped and explored. There are actually five old Indian burial mounds here. One of them is on top of the hill on the left of this photo.
The intention was to make a photo of the moon during the penumbra eclipse, but I was too late. I had a conference call prior to the eclipse and found out about the eclipse time after the fact. So, I got a photo of a full moon after the eclipse instead.
I went downtown around the game's kick off time. There were not a lot of activity, obviously, except for rafts of ducks. I don't know why this spot was popular, but I assumed they felt safe down there.
Winter does not mean cold, gloomy, and miserable weather all the time. It was a nice sunny day but still around freezing temperature. At least there was no wind. There was probably about a foot of ice underneath us. A few people caught some fish; we all had a good time. Did I tell you that it was for free? There were s'mores and hot chocolate too. I love this town.
Opportunity to appreciate life sometimes comes when one least expects it. Like, on an early morning of the last work day of a long work week and you were running late. Don't forget to take a breather every once in awhile.
This was the morning after the snowstorm. The snow had not stopped falling until late morning; it wasn't much more. It was probably another inch. Those snow piles were not largest pile. We had a couple of small hill size piles in front of our office.
It was the morning after the snowstorm. I woke up early to clear the snow from the driveway before going to work, even though it was still snowing lightly. We carpooled to work because I don't think the car would make it out of the neighborhood. The street was still unplowed.
The snowstorm has passed. The morning started with shoveling the driveway. We got probably six to eight inches throughout the city. Two hours late start for schools and not everybody made it to the office today. It is another winter adventure, some might say.
