4 days ago this was all covered in snow, but with snow last week followed by days of rain we now have a lakeside view!
We have more rain in the forecast so I imagine this will get more water this week. We’re about 15 ft above this so hopefully we’ll be alright.
There has been some flooding around the valley already. Fingers crossed it doesn’t get really bad. The county has sandbag stations set up across the valley for anyone who wants to get sandbags. The only requirement…bring your own shovel.
I hope you all stay safe, warm, and dry!

I really enjoyed this snowy valley landscape photo at sunrise, Deborah. Beautiful pinks and reflections.
Thank you so much, Jet! Almost all the water is gone now, but the view…it’s one I don’t think I’ll be tired of. ☺😄
Just saying hello!’☀️☀️☀️😊
Hello right back atcha! I hope you have a lovely week! 😄
I am so far! And you too
This truly is the poster for ‘picture perfect’.
Thank you so much, Jennie! I’m glad you like it.
You are very welcome, Deborah!
Well … enjoy your lakeside view while it lasts. It makes a nice statement in your landscape here. A town near Telluride had some flooding a week or so ago because of some rain plus fast snowpack melting.
It didn’t last long! Almost all the water is gone now there’s just lanes of water scattered throughout the open field now.
It’s just started to lightly snow here. I hope you’re warm and cosy.
Yikes! And here we’re already having “fire weather warning” in the weather report. Too bad we can’t do a bit of an exchange.
Regardless the photo is gorgeous. I love the colors and the way the light is on the water. Stay safe and well. Hugs.
Thank you so much, Teagan! Hugs!
We keep our fingers crossed that you’ll stay dry.

Thank you so much! We’re good the rain didn’t come so the water is receding!
Nice contemplative shot, Deborah.
I hit send too fast. Best of luck staying high and dry. This has been a terrible year for flooding in so many places.
Thank you so much, Steve!
I sure hope the rain doesn’t come down too much
And ouch! Shoveling sand is serious work – I can imagine the calories burned with filling sand bags (but they sure can be effective for combatting flooding,
The storm that was supposed to bring lots of rain and some snow didn’t! It only sprinkled and brought a strong wind so all this water is nearly gone along with most the snow on our yard! That’s good news!!
Glad to hear good news
Wow! What a beautiful vista!
It was so beautiful on this morning. Thank you so much, Kendall!
Interesting. Glad that it is receding. Any ducks on the water?
Oh yes, new ones spotted this new lake and flew in. I saw coots, and Northern Pintails in the dying light so my neighbor and I named it Pintail Lake. 😃 It’s receded a lot!! Which is great because we’re supposed to get rain for the next couple of days.
Wow, who knew you’d have premium waterfront real estate! 😉 Very pretty, Deborah, every day will deliver you some awesome reflection shots, enjoy before it recedes. And I pray it doesn’t get up near you, do be careful of the flooding.
LOL! I know right! The water has receded quite a bit already so, no danger of flooding up here thankfully.
Thank you so much, Donna! 😃🙏
Snow-covered mountains plus soft clouds reflected in water: how nice to enjoy that lakeside view.
It is nice. I find I’m never bored with this view out back no matter what nature is giving me to look at. Thank you so much, Steve!
I hope you don’t have issues that required sand bags. Fingers crossed. We have snow coming in big time with 45 mph winds so I’ll have my fingers crossed here too. 🙂
Thank you so much, Judy! We didn’t have any rain or snow yesterday so the water has receded a good bit. We won’t any sandbags this time round, thankfully! 😃😍
I hope you, and your property fair well throughout that storm! We get strong winds like that often I know how it can be unnerving having that strong wind slam into the house. Stay safe!
Gorgeous image! I hope the rain treats you gently, Deborah. Here in my corner of California, it’s been lovely… just enough so I don’t need to water my plants.
Us too! I’m glad you’re alright. My daughter and her family in No.Calif aren’t doing as well. Their road washed out last night and this morning as more of it crumbled it took out a power pole and line! They’re stuck on the wrong side and can’t get out by car, but there’s a back path they can walk out on if they have to. What a winter!
Lots of water, keeper my fingers crossed for you guys! You made a nice shot of it it regardless.
Thank you, John! The sun’s out now so hopefully the water evaporates some, but the snow is melting too so…?
Wow, stay safe!!
Thanks, Gordon! It’s been a winter hasn’t it!
Wow, what a shot, Deborah! Adopting this as my new laptop background …
Thanks, Paul! I’m glad you like it.
It’s a lovely photo, Deborah! I hope you won’t be affected by those water levels. Stay safe!
Thank you, Belinda! I hope so too!
I hope you’re high enough up. 15′ in a valley is a lot, but still holding a good thought for you guys.
Thank you so much, Dan! We hope 15ft is enough too. We hear in the winter of 2017 the water came all the way up and over the golf course greens!
I hope that 15 feet are enough, Deborah. Lovey photo
Us too, John! Thank you so much!!
Maybe a trip to the sandbag center might be in order.
I hope YOU lot will stay dry! Sandbags are available, that could be of some reassurance. (Living in a country that is for a large part below sealevel I can relate to this.) The picture you took is wonderful. So at least there is a benefit to the situation. Stay save Deborah!
Thank you so much, Peter! I am thankful for the photo ops this valley gives me. 😃 Let’s hope we all can stay dry!
