I rarely get excited about snow.
A little because it mucks up the roads and can be inconvenient, but mostly because they predict lots of it, and then we get a dusting – ultimately leading to my disappointment.
So when I looked at the weather forecast a few days ago and it claimed 8″ between today and tomorrow, I tried to rein in my anticipation. They slowly started to back off from large predictions as today grew closer, and I began to give up. Then it did start to snow a little today, and my hopes came shooting back up… and then the snow stopped.
I hate to be the pessimist, but I highly doubt a large snow system will magically appear tomorrow to make my snow dreams come true. Boo.
Either way, the little dusting we got today was pretty. It always feels a little bit more like Christmas time when there is snow on the ground.
Anyway, about today’s image.
I attempted to catch snowflakes in focus against a dark background for awhile, but the flakes weren’t big enough nor was it snowing heavily enough.
I happened to glance back toward the pasture, and sure enough the boys were out (the two specks by the power line pole). They can come and go in and out of the barn as they please, and it always seems that come snow, sleet, or heavy rain they choose then to frolic.
Whatever makes you happy right?
