Snow Leaving for Now

 The snow has almost melted, but frigid temperatures are returning tonight.

 MOO! The snow is totally gone in more and more areas.
These guys prefer the road to being fenced in. They are always breaking out.

Now, this is a BIG puddle!

 People just leave vintage tools in the fields to rust away.

The red sign in the distance is a warning sign. A high school student went over the dam there and was killed a number of years ago. The currents are pretty severe at times at this location. The old railroad bridge was turned into a footbridge, but it was washed away two times and never rebuilt. I have taken pictures of this area in the sumer but never in the winter.

A Rather Nice Appalachian Trail Sign

I wish Springtime was under this sign instead of spring water.

  3. Beautiful winter pictures. I don't think I would go near that dam. I had an aha moment when I saw that cattle fence. I wondered how some cows that I have seen haven't gotten out when the gate has been open. Now I know.
    Cold and colder here. I thought we were to have 4 inches of snow last night or today. That didn't happen. It keep piling up.
    I bet you do miss school. Just think of those cold mornings that you get to stay home. You are doing great on those quilts.

  6. What a nice series of photos. That was fun to look through getting a good idea of your homeland. I really like the cattle guard image in an artistic sense. Good job.

  10. Pretty photos of the dusting of snow! We see those road closed signs here in Minnesota when we have a blizzard and white out conditions. Which seems to be a lot this winter.

  16. Love your captures! My most favorite is I think your second one because of the design. It looks like winter!!

  17. I like the soft pattern the snow has made on the mountains.
    (and I had a little chuckle at Rajesh's comment "last glimpse of winter" If only! We have more snow on the way tonight and another deep freeze next week.

  27. Lovely photos of a beautiful part of VA, I've some good memories of camping out next to the Maury River, fishing for trout and cooking them over an open fire. Hello Neighbor, I'm in southwest VA.

  28. That's quite a variety of weather and landscape! I do love the wintry shadows. They are very fleeting as they won't last long!

  29. What wonderful perspectives of this world. Love how you give us the central scene first and then wander round getting closer views. Especially love the first two scenes and the last photo.
