What a difference a day makes.


Here is a peek at the road.  Yes, this was early and those tracks were gone in about 20 minutes.
The snow was coming at about an inch and hour or a while.

It did ease up in the late evening, but the blowing snow always makes for interesting road conditions.

The wind carved some beautiful snow sculptures.  Hard packed drifts!



Surprisingly the donkeys didn't seek shelter, the temps were not cold and they stayed out in it playing.  Sally sported some interesting icicles on her brows.


And yes, I checked her undercoat and it felt nice warm and dry.

So today I decided to take advantage of the warmer temps and head out with my older snow shoes and my faithful dog, Morris...my photography assistant and resident clown.

No black and white for this day!
Hello sunshine!

For the first time in weeks I could actually enjoy the sunlight on my skin.

The creek was rather pleasant and I actually didn't get cold at all this visit.

 
I stood with the tripod in the creek and got a few nice shots which made me quite pleased.

The snow was getting mushy and clumping onto my snow shoes as we headed back.  It was warm, nearly 40 degrees.  A temp we haven't seen in ages.

Morris felt invigorated and decided to end our outing with some 'snow swimming' Jack Russell style.
