Christmas morning in the mountains. Electricity went out in the middle of the night during a blizzard with snow, 14 degrees and 20+ MPH wind. The first light revealed mountain beauty. Drifting snow and contoured snow drifts with icicles hanging down. 8" of fresh snow on the ground and power restored as it was off during the night.
Winter beauty at its best and only right to share with others. More snow predicted for later today so we will be out clearing snow and probably collapse in bed tonight exhausted.
We just finished yesterday clearing snow from the last storm three days ago. It is best to keep up with clearing the snow because when it piles up one storm on top of another it tends to close in on us and it much harder to clear.
Happy Holidays to everyone.....
