After the storm

Our neighborhood got 20" of snow in about 36 hours on Friday and Saturday.  In typical Colorado fashion, the sun came out yesterday afternoon and the melting began. 

I love the way snow nestles in the limbs of the aspen tree.
Junipers bow to the weight of the snow.

"Well, that was fun while it lasted."

Thank goodness we didn't get that much snow out here! The back patio has melted itself clean, but I still need to do the front. I don't have to go back to school until Tuesday, so maybe solar power will help it melt, too.

I heard about your snow on the news.

Now, the sun coming through your blue sky is doing its job! Nice pictures to show it.

Wow, lots of snow all at once but sure is pretty. And you know I can relate to the dumping of the snow and then the immediate melt! You'd think we lived in the same place. ;v)

Beautiful pictures!

My daughter lived a couple of years in Minneapolis, where the snow stayed on the ground for about 6 months; followed by two years in England, which got a little snow, but mostly was rainy and the sun rarely shined; to now living in Colorado Springs for the past 1 1/2 years. Hands down, she prefers the Colorado weather. Yes, she does occasionally have to drive in blizzard conditions (wrecked her car in it this week :-( ), but at least the snow melts between snows, and there's lots and lots of sunshine! :-)

Thats crazy and bizarre. How can you get that much snow and have a sunny day right after?

I love the aspen trees. LOVE.

In fact, if we get pregnant with a girl someday her name is going to be Aspen. You heard it here first :)

You capture the subject so well in your photographs Karen! Loved seeing all that snow - is fascinating to one who rarely ever sees such a scene! Blessings!

Take Care.
