It’s Wet!

This is not the usual view around my place, but it’s much better than that white stuff! I hope to get some great photos of the surrounding mountains wearing a fresh coat of that white stuff after these low-pressure systems move out and away.

The Gray Foothills

The distant foothills west of my home are almost completely enveloped in gray clouds as this current low-pressure system works its way through the area. Another low-pressure center will follow on its heels, according to the National Weather Service.

Taking a very short walk this morning, the cold, damp air smelled reminiscent of my Michigan heritage.

It reminds me of standing alone in the wood both as a child and an adult listening to and watching the tall trees sway in unison high above me as though performing a beautiful ballet of nature. I will never escape who I am, nor my northern roots.

Snow Above 2000 Feet?

That number puts my home well within the altitude to receive some snow at 2800 feet! It’s Bogus. It’s Hanus. I know this can happen, but it doesn’t mean that I have to like it, now does it? So far it’s just rained overnight with the winds just a howlin’, but no flakes yet. Gladly, I have no reason to go out for a couple of days, the time this low-pressure system will be hanging around.
