Winter's Baaaack!!!

"And finally Winter, with its bitin', whinin' wind, and all the land
will be mantled with snow."
Judge Roy Bean

Winter is making it's comeback!!!  
According to Mammoth Mountain ski report, we've had over 26" of snowfall
over the last 24 hours!!!  WooHoo!!!
It rained all afternoon and evening yesterday and I thought there
was no way we'd get snow...
But last night, it turned from rain to snow storm, complete with 
heavy winds, downed trees and power lines... power for somewhere between 10 and 15 hours!!! 
And still no TV...anybody have a dish warmer you don't want???

  1. I'm glad you have it and that we don't have much snow...yet.

  2. At least the bridge is clear - so you can get out for a bracing walk!

  3. I was rather enjoying the cold weather without snow Bibi...but the skiing left a lot to be desired!!! We're all glad the snow's back! One thing that's really nice about living in a ski resort...the snow removal here is awesome!!! We can get around pretty well regardless of the snow!!!

    Thanks for visiting Lesley!!! It's definitely clear enough for a brisk walk!!!

  4. LOL winter was back here too......3 whole inches..ours looks sad compared to yours. I love the bridge pic!

  5. thanks Linda!!! Somehow I think snow up here is easier to deal with than on the ranch!

  6. That is a lot of snow in a short period of time! Where I live, snow would cause total chaos on a workday (or probably any day).

  7. And it's snowing again today!!! Fortunately, living in a ski resort, it's vital that we keep the roads open for our tourism...they've got to be able to get to the ski lifts!!! Makes it all the easier for us locals!!!

  8. The snow is beautiful and poetic. I think that when you can dream of the soft whiteness and never have to shovel a walkway, it really has a magical quality!

    K, you and your new camera are getting on quite well! I love your moonlight blue shot from a few days back - wow!


  9. Thanks Genie!!! Today's photo is actually an older photo, with a bit of color foolery...the blue moon though is me and my new buddy!!! I haven't had the time to really get into the new one yet...I'm due for a photo excursion...will see how the week goes!!!

  10. Hurray for winter!

    Lovely shot. Enjoy the snow.

  11. It rained here today, but it is supposed to warm up again in a few days. I miss the rain already.

  12. It's made its debut here in Tokyo, too! Hope you have a warm fire place or heaters to keep you warm while you enjoy the snow :D

  13. It snowed all weekend Margaret...then yesterday was so warm it all started melting!!!

    Not always warm enough Kaori!!! But we've got a cozy spot!!!

    Hopefully Valladolid!!! We need the snow!!!

  14. This is a wee bit too much of the white for me, but love seeing it in your photo. Beautiful capture. Nice job. genie

  15. Ohhh Genie!!! This has been a dry year so far!!! Not much snow...certainly not compared to last year!!!
