|Bear enjoying the powder|
Although the nearby Cascade mountains usually get tons of the white stuff, in town measurable snowfall doesn't happen very often.
|Tranquil scene at the local park|
I awoke Friday morning to nearly four inches of fluffy pow. AND my workplace was closed. Woo-hoo! Snow day!
|Snow covered fern|
Excited, I grabbed my camera and hustled outside to explore this white world. You know me - I love snow, and was beyond excited to see it in my own backyard.
|I catch Bear in a rare still moment|
|Snow capped cattails|
The new fallen snow created many good photo ops. Such as these snow capped cattails.
|My happy doggy|
Bear had a blast romping through the powder. I had fun capturing his joy. For an old dog, he's still got lots of pep in his step.
|Wind blown snow fills in the fence|
Even in my yard, photo subjects abounded. Who would've thought a fence could be so interesting?
|Small creek is outlined in white|
Or a weedy roadside ditch?
But I'll never tire of photographing my doggy. He's always doing something cute.
|More snowy park scenes|
Another snowy scene in the woods.
|White-capped bird feeder|
Looks like we need to fill the bird feeder. Gotta help our feathered friends!
Snow days force us out of our daily routines. They create a little bit of "bonus time" - perfect opportunities to rekindle our inner 9-year old. Or to stop and enjoy the wonderful beauty of nature.
