Solid Blue Skies + Red Barns + White Snow = Beautiful Scenes

We finally got a "real" snow last Tuesday night, March 5th. These pictures were taken on my ride home from school on Friday, and as you can see the snow was melting quickly because of the warm temperatures. Still, LOTS of our county was without power up until last night...5 miserable days. The "Y" was opened at 5AM on Friday so the teachers could go there to take showers before work. We were some of the fortunate ones who got our power back within a reasonable time. I may have shot this barn a year or so ago, but it was without snow and not from these angles. I was actually able to pull off the road to take the pictures, and they are SOOC with my Canon Point and Shoot. These are the kids of views we will no longer have when they close our beautiful country school on May 30. So sad.

  3. # 4 and #5...Has a sheep wondered outside the fencing? Or is that a big rock on the right side of the roadway pretending to BAAA?

    I got your package today. The bunnies are adorable. I love the white bunnies the most. This is the cutest swap ever. Can't wait to start mailing. Still only half in. But I can start assembling since only five go out a time.
