Mother Nature Has Done Her Thing Again ~ March 30, 2011
When I got to work this morning, the sky was clouding over but there was still a sky to shoot. A few hours later, as the students were changing classes, I heard coming from the hall in front of my windowless room... “IT’S SNOWING!” Being that teachers are no more mature about snow than their pupils I headed for the windows in the library, and there was that magical snow raining down from the heavens in all of its glory...big, wonderful flakes. Quickly I charged outside with the trusty Canon point and shoot, but when I looked up I could’t see the sky or the mountains. We were in what folk here in the country call a "Virginia style white-out” - no mountains and no sky - just lots of gray and lots of snow flakes. It only lasted for about an hour, but what an hour it was. I know these are different photographs from the sunrises, sunsets, and blue, cloud filled skies I usually post, but I just couldn’t resist sharing with you the beauty of the gray one I saw today with the snowflakes floating to the ground.
“Nature has no mercy at all. “I’m going to snow. If you have on a bikini and no snowshoes, that’s tough. I am going to snow anyway.”
