Yesterday’s forecast said snow after dark, but I didn’t fully register this till early morning light revealed something on the skylight directly above my bed. Aha! Snow!

Snow it was, two or three inches of fluffy powder on the deck.

I took my camera when Trav and I went for our walk, but the results were less than satisfactory. It was cold, for one thing, and my mittened thumb kept messing with the camera settings. It was also bright bright bright, and the contrast of light and shadow wasn’t kind to my digital point and shoot, or whatever illusions I might harbor about my photographic abilities.

I did like these shots, though.

This was over by Misty Meadows. The sky really was that blue.
