Silver and Snow


We got a blizzard in our area this morning, 
about 8 to 10 inches of snow started falling before dawn.
This pales in comparison to the big snow storm our area 
experienced in 1978, with temperatures below zero 
and winds whipping drifts of snow through the abandoned streets. 
The city was virtually deserted, 
with everyone hunkered down inside their homes.
Today's snowfall is minor by comparison.
The overcast today flattened out the scenery.
I am hoping for clear skies tomorrow morning,
when pretty pictures may be made.

Purrty.
Can't wait to see the sunny snow photos, Speedway. I hope you get the perfect day for it.

Una hermosa foto, a veces la nieve pasa de ser un elemento bello a algo muy duro y desagradable.
Un saludo, Ángel
