I'm posting more winter photos. I hope you don't mind. I never intended to be a weather blog but I simply had to show you some pix I took a few days ago.
A thick, dense fog settled over the whole valley but the temps were still far below freezing and when we get that combination it makes for my FaVoRiTe of all winter landscapes. The moisture in the air wraps around every blade of grass, every tree branch. It lies down on every field. And then it freezes, forming the most delicate shroud of white on everything in sight.
I actually get giddy when I wake up to this beauty. It feels like a gift. All magical and mystical — like stepping into Narnia. And it's so delicate. If you dare to touch the frosty surfaces the heat from your finger instantly melts the crystals and the spell is broken. Or if the sun heats things too much the fog lifts. Lucky for us it stayed like this all day. Some of these photos are from 10 a.m. when I was out running errands and some are from around 4 p.m. when I ran out to drop off something for Emma at the school.
