Snow Week Wrap Up

We experienced some true winter weather here in the Metro Denver area this week, finally!

Lots of snow in the mountains of course, to the delight of skiers and the ski resorts but all we got around my home neighborhoods was about an inch or so.

Still, it was so cold (low teens) that it was the fluffy kind of snow, so not hard to clear off one's driveway but it stuck around long enough for me to get some pictures.

Here's some from Wednesday morning, after the snow had started falling the evening before:

Here's what it looked like on Thursday morning, after the storm clouds had gone east and the sun came out:

To finish off the week, we had a pretty good sunset this Friday evening.  The roads are dry and the snow has pretty much disappeared from the metro area roads.  More snowy weather coming I hear, we'll see what shows up.

 The above shot to give you an idea of how small the puddle was that
I used to get the reflecton shots.

Red skies over Colorado Springs, that's Pikes Peak in the distance.

I really like the last couple of photos with the reflections. Very nice.

Thanks RichardM, pretty nice what you can do with a puddle of melted snow sometimes.

SonjaM said...

Dom, the reflection in the puddle is awesome. Nice catch.

redlegsrides said...

Vielen Dank SonjaM! Glad you liked it. Hope your recovery is going well?

Beautiful snow pictures Dom, but the sunset with the reflections are stunning.

It tried to snow in Corvallis, one or two flakes and schools were closed or on 2 hour delays. Sigh.

Thanks Trobairitz, I think its time for me to pass on ScooterBob over to you two.....sound right?

Dom ScooterBob's time with you was really something. You did this little project really proud.

We need to make sure that the little guy gets up to Richard for when the weather in his neck of the woods is truly atrociously cold. One place we would have been unlikely to see Bob's bare feet would have been on Richard's lawn in the dead of an Alaskan winter.
