It appears winter has arrived

Snow-covered evergreens

We got a whole bunch of snow over the last few days. Today was the first day in what feels like a long time that the sky was blue and the sun was out.

We noticed some sun­dogs while head­ed home from gro­cery shop­ping, so I grabbed my cam­era and head­ed south of town for some pho­tos. By the time I got there the ‘dogs were fad­ing, but I got one before they vanished.

I also appre­ci­at­ed the way the trees looked at the edge of a field, so I pulled over to the side of the road and snapped a few pho­tos of them, too.

Today was the start of the bliz­zard ’round these parts. I took this pho­to of the lacy snow on my front pic­ture win­dow at about 1:20 PM, after I’d shov­eled the walk for a sec­ond time.

The snow keeps com­ing, but not as bad here as oth­er places; I’d be hap­py, though, if the wind would just die down a bit. I guess that’s what I get for liv­ing on the prairie.
