Snow Day, Virginia Style.
Used free template by Misbits from My Memories.
January 17th approximately 8” of snow fell in SW Virginia. It was incredibly fast. So fast that as Jim and I were capturing photos we watching things that once stood tall disappear beneath the snow . We had intermittent power-cuts under the heave of the snow and neighboring towns had power outages for more than a day.
What amazed me the most was the sun. We woke up to glorious sun lighting up the snow. My new camera got a work out capturing 236 pictures as I greedily controlled the shutter. Being from the U.K. I have never experienced anything quite like it. When you get snow in the UK you generally don’t get any sun and the freezing cold temperatures are evident. The day started here around 32F and climbed to 50’s. A day later it’s like looking at a landscape created by Dali. Sun almost blinding and snow melting from the trees in huge dollops. Stunning!
