I returned home from my New Mexico journey Friday evening (March 3) to some really cold and windy weather. Today (Saturday the 4th) it got no warmer than 15 degrees (around -10 Celsius) and tonight it is even colder. The wind is howling loudly. I thought it was March, not January. :(
I think I am the bearer of this cold weather.
Last week in New Mexico we had some snowy weather one day, and since it feels so much like winter tonight, I thought I would share some snowy photos I took with you.
OK it was 8 AM and my friend's husband Bob left for the ski mountain, so Vicky (whom I was visiting) and I decided to take little walk in the snow. The silly part is that we went walking in our pj's. Of course we had on our coats, hats, scarves and our boots.
The clouds and flying snow made a weird and kind of eerie landscape. The mountains disappeared and everything looked different. I felt like I was far away and in a different place from where I was.
At home when it snows the clouds don't create this kind of magic.
Emma the dog came with us too.
And then in the clouds we could hear something twittering and suddenly a flock of birds appeared.
It was thrilling to watch their form morphing its shape as they moved across the horizon.
I'd never been at my friend's home when the snow flew like this, so it was an exciting event.
And even better that by the next day beautiful weather had returned. The sun warmed the air and the couple inches of fresh snow melted. They got about 29 (about 74 cm) inches of new snow up at the ski area. I'm not a skier, but Bob said it was one of his best days of skiing ever.
I'll take the sun and beautiful weather any day.
But one more snowy photo first.
Hope your weekend is warm sunny and spring like. And send some of that better weather my way too.
