My First White Christmas in over 30 Years

Hello World!  It’s me.  Not doing a great job at keeping up with a photography blog, but I am ready to Rock N Roll with the upcoming New Year.  So….. As the title says.   This is my first white Christmas since 1983. I was in Eastern Montana.  Honestly, it has been snowing off and on since before Thanksgiving.  I am ready to be able to drive to work on clear dry roads.

This is our back yard.  It is pretty! And I haven’t shot snow pictures in years.  I mean, “Real” snow pictures. Of course we had our snow in the desert about 2008, where they closed the base we worked at (Edwards Air Force Base) because we had about 3 inches of snow. And we all know how California people drive bad enough when it rains.. Add snow.. It was ugly.

Today is Christmas. Merry Christmas.

This is just down the road from our house. Taken today.  I love it. I just wish it wasn’t so cold on the fingers to shoot outside.

There are good things about snow, the dogs don’t seem to mind it. This is their first real winter. My Charlie boy is starting to look like a bear!  But he doesn’t complain!  The little dog, she is freezing off her girl parts. And the old dog, she tolerates it.

There are bad things about winter.  I forgot about the shoveling, the getting stuck ( I haven’t yet) and the crappy roads. We live on a pretty steep incline, so my trusty 4 wheel drive aka “Mama Bear” has gotten me up the hill, down the hill, across the bridges, and to work daily!   However, we don’t even own a real snow shovel. Dear Husband attempted to buy one, most of the stores laughed!  This area hasn’t had snow like this in about 5 years (lucky us) So old school way of shoveling snow.. use a flat shovel.

New school way of shoveling….  Use the Deere!!

He looks extremely cold.  Nice green stocking cap too! (I made that!)

Thanks for following my first winter adventure!  See you soon.. I promise!!!
