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.
We’ve had fog, and storm clouds the last week through the week-end up until last night. We also got a whole lot of snow. Here are a couple of images of the scenery. Recently the mornings have been foggy.
Clouds-After the storm had passed I looked out the window and saw Job’s Peak just peeking out from the clouds, and this brilliant cloud on the left lit by the afternoon sun.
Last week I took advantage of a break in the storm to go run some errands, and on my way home I spied this beauty in a tree on my street.
We have cloudy skies in the forecast for the rest of the week. Temperatures are forecasted to be lows in the teens, and highs in mid 30’s I hope that holds so I can get out to do some birding and meet up with some friends.
I hope your week is going well, and you have a lovely week-end too!
It snowed in the valley and mountains yesterday evening then it rained, then it rained and snowed at the same time. That was weird. What’s that phenomenon called when it does that? Big, fat chucky snowflakes coming down while it was raining. I’d never seen anything like it before.
I woke up hoping the sunrise would be pretty and there would be snow on the valley floor, alas no snow on the valley floor and barely any on the lower PineNut Mountains, but the Carson Range and Eastern Sierras are gorgeous this morning.
It was 28 degrees F when I stepped outside to make this image, and there’s a better than 50% chance of more snow this morning. I am hoping we get a little more today but, not tonight. He-Man and I have been meeting friends off and on for over a month on Weds. nights to play trivia at a local grill/bar. We’re having a lot of fun playing. We came in 4th on our first night of playing and have made it to the leader board every time since but we’ve not yet made it to the top 3. We’re team “The Silver Foxes”.
I need to scoot and look for the clues to tonight’s questions. I hope your week is going well, and you all have a lovely Wednesday!
