So close, then this!

As I was headed out to catch the bus on Wednesday, I noticed how much snow had gone, so thought I would snap a picture. This is one of the South facing yards in the complex, starting to show grass. What a sight for snow blind eyes!

Then I noticed the forlorn remains of this snowman.

I was out today after three days of snow and grey, ucky weather. It was -17c with a windchill of -25c (-15f windchill). I was almost immediately blinded by the sun reflecting off of the snow, but thought I had to take a comparison shot. This is the same lawn area as the first shot.

And I found some other snowmen that had fared a bit better.

I thought the shadows looked kind of pretty.

These last three were taken without the benefit of actually seeing the screen on my phone, it was that bright. I think they turned out alright.

It will be just above freezing for the rest of the week, then calling for more snow on the weekend again - sigh! It will be warm thought so it won't stick around. I really shouldn't complain, at least I am not in the East with Hilary of The Smitten Image! She gets much better pictures though.

Goodnight all.

Hey, I found you a 24 hour alarm clock:

Thanks Tink! Wow, it has temperature even. I actually found a cheap little one very similar to that the other day.

I've only seen a few of your photos so far, Reb. They don't seem to want to build. The snowman remnant looked all too human.
I choose to believe this is the lousy weather's last hurrah for the season.

Hi, Reb:
We had even less snow than that, before this last little dump of snow. It is melting quickly here today - it's warmer and the wind is blowing.

Reb said...

Oh Leah, that's too bad they won't build for you. (they aren't that special though) I hope it is the last hurrah!

Sis why does that not surprise me? It is blindingly sunny again here today and is melting fast.

Gotta love those poor snowpeople pics.. and the tree shadows look great. We've had very wet sticky snowfolk making weather here, yet I've not seen any around. I should look harder.

Thanks so much for the linkage, Reb. You're too sweet. :)

Reb said...

Thanks Hilary. You mean you haven't made any yourself?

Hilary said...

Ummm no. Think I should remedy that? I will if you will. ;)
