After the past few days of some rather robust Great Lakes weather I was happy to see that the sun was going to shine and we were going to have some clear skies! We started getting snow Friday afternoon around 4 p.m. ..... 90 minutes later we already had 2 inches of snow....so I knew we were going to get what they were predicting.
After the storm subsided and we started digging out, it warmed enough to start melting and a line of icicles formed all around the house. I was gazing at the icicles and it made me think of the movie Dr. Zhivago and the magnificent ice covered palace...
While this March storm felt like it was burying us, I am glad my home didn't end up like this ice palace! We received 14" in about 16 hrs.....some areas near us got 20" and a lot of people lost power due to downed power lines....
I made up my mind to follow the sun and capture some of it's beauty as it rose and would begin to cast it's rays on the fresh white snow...
It popped up majestically and wrapped it's glow all around....
Mind you only a few days ago we were looking at grass....we still had some snow here and there, but we literally could see the grass and were feeling optimistic about an early spring!
Mother nature had other ideas....so I will continue to enjoy my little plants indoors that are all lined up in the window....
Brighter and brighter it became as the sun rose higher in the sky....it was a crisp 15 degrees
My Dwarf Alberta Spruce's are holding quite a load of snow!
I love to see the patterns reflected and how the sun glistens off the snow! More and more it's looking like it will be a beautiful day!
My plants are doing the happy dance! They can always use some extra UV!
Today will be a paradise for skiers, and snowmobilers!
Personally I'm anxiously awaiting for all this to go away so I can see my tulips this spring!
One thing about living in a snow belt region like we do is when spring comes you really really do appreciate it!
I know some parts of the country were really devastated by tornadoes and my heart goes out to all of those people who have suffered because of it.
I hope your Sunday is beautiful too!
