Snow Day

Global warming is "playin" us here in the midwest and the temperature dropped 40 degrees in a few hours one day this week; keep on thinking this global warming is a joke. Anyway, we had a beautiful snow storm last night into this morning where God dropped a little winter wonderland on our little town. I shoveled my driveway this morning, put the "cam" in the car and hit the snow laced streets. I was the only crazy out there, well me and the snow plows; other people had better sense to stay in the house. The good news is that it allowed me to stop my car in the middle of these country roads and take some shots.

It's amazing how quick you can take a shot when you're cold and worried about a car driving into your back seat. As I was out I thought to myself "how beautiful things are when it snows". It provides a sense of purity to a world that is less than pure these days. Ever notice how quiet and peaceful it is in the early morning hours after a snow storm? Before the snow plows come you can see the snow crystals sparkling in the sunlight. There's an innocence there that reminds me of the preciousness of a newborn's smile. Welcome to "Snow Day" on the farm.

I feel cold just looking at those pics. I like the 2nd and 3rd pictures the best. A bit insane to be out there, however they look idyllic.

I miss snow *sniff sniff*
