Today started like any other day. I got up, had a cup of coffee, wrote my blog, and decided to head off to work early today due to an impending storm that was to finally give us some snow. Here is a photo of the incoming storm clouds.
I got into work earlier than everyone else by an hour and a half. Immediately I started having computer issues. I could not get anything to load and I was getting error messages. I looked out the window wondering if we were ever going to see the snow. A light rain was falling across the canyon but I could see that there was snow at the higher elevations due to what looked like white-out conditions there.
After a couple of hours, I ran an errand for the company while my computer was being put back to rights. As I drove back up the hill the light rain turned to light snow, but it was nothing that would amount to much. About an hour later, while I was on the phone with a co-worker, I said that if it was going to come down the way that it was then it should at least stick. A few minutes later I noticed that the vineyards were starting to turn white. Looking out of my window I could see the snow sticking to the deck. Time to leave!
As I drove I took a video with my cell phone. If I can get the video to work right, I will post what part of my drive home looked like. After an hour and a half of it snowing, here are some shots of what it looks like outside right now, but add another two inches…I also took a couple of videos so you can hear how quiet it is and so that you can watch the beautiful snow as it falls! That will come later!
I hope that you enjoyed my photos! Stay tuned for more snow photos!
