Snowy Snow Photos

in Nature, Place

Check out my Island Snowstorm Photo Album.  It was 8 degrees F when I got up today, then rose to a high of 14.  Colder in the wind out on the point.  Pretty unbelievable.  Can’t remember it ever being this cold here before.   Trees are toppled everywhere, and even our native hedgerows of snowberry and wild rose are flattened.

Talked to my friend Kristine a little while ago.  She makes all the cards in the Gaian Majors deck by hand for me.  She was in a truck yesterday with her husband, 4 year-old son and baby daughter when it flipped over.  Everyone was safe and someone gave them a ride home, but it was pretty terrifying.

We’re still pretty much snowbound . . . but we have power.  Bless Goddess.  Craig made delicious turkey and vegetable pie for dinner.  We’re warm.  We’re safe.  We’re blown away by the beauty and the cold, just outside our door.

Stay warm, my friends.

Thoughtful, sparkling comments. . .

    I hope you will continue to be safe and warm in your winter wonderland, Joanna. It’s magical, this kind of weather, but can be so frightening as well… I’m halfway across the world on the Orkney Islands, and although our weather is pretty mild all year round, we get the most ferocious storms quite often. Living in these kinds of places certainly makes you stand in awe and respect of Mother Nature’s whims.
    Love and Light,

    Greetings Joanna! I have marvelled at the photos you posted of the snow fall at your home. We have had balmy weather here in west central Illinos. Our first possible snow arrives tonight. The wind has begun to blow harder and the little birds are all huddled and puffed up against its chill.
    Snow is the blanket under which Mother Earth sleeps. This time of year gives us reason to pause as we observe the beauty and the power of Nature.
    Bountiful Blessings
    PS: Turkey pie sounds delicious!

    Holy Cow! I don’t think I’ve ever seen it snow like that in Washington State and I was stationed there for 3 years! And yet, those pictures are just beautiful! But jeez, look what you had to go through to get them! LOL! Sigh, makes me wish I was there…

    Isn’t white virgin snow beautiful, Joanna?
    When we lived in the Rockies, the snow fall was enormous and looks so white for a long time. When the sun shone at it in the right angle, the snow was blue.
    Now, here in Alberta, Canada, we had a lot of snow as well, but minus 16 to 21 degrees Celsius – not even my dog wanted to go out.
    When it got warmer, I dared to go out into the nature reserve – stupid me – I sank in up to my bum.

    What a stunning, stunning photo, Joanna…
    Snow, fall color, daffodils…none last long enough here in Western Washington to ever take them for granted.
    I really love this shot!
