Unlike yesterday's constant snowfall, we woke up this morning to absolutely clear skies and stunning sunshine. What's the old saying? "If you don't like the weather, wait five minutes..."
It was so beautiful out that I carried my camera around all morning and took lots of shots, starting with a pearly opalescent pre-dawn.
We had two-foot icicles off the roof near the stovepipe.
Clear skies, about 6:30 am. It's getting lighter earlier, staying lighter later. Spring is coming.
Bright sun-lit cloud, just before sunrise.
Dawn's early light.
Peeking over the horizon.
Those same two-foot icicles from the outside.
Six-foot snow donuts.
After I milked Matilda, I put her back in the barn and let Amy out of her pen, where she immediately dove for mama's udder. Breakfast!
The view out the back of the barn.
Shadows and sparkles.
Our log pile is buried.
Matilda and Amy are ready to get out of the barn.
Sparky and Polly.
By mid-morning the trees were beginning to dump their snow loads. The cascading snow looked like smoke.
Icicles were dripping.
It's supposed to get above freezing today. We'll see how long the snow lasts.
