The Day After the Snow

This was the view out my back door in the late afternoon yesterday.
Zooming in, slower lens, to show the flakes.

Today, this was about all that was left, tiny piles of sunshine resistent flakes.

Snow circles, anyone? Taken of an area that was sorta white all over yesterday. By noon today, about when I took this, this was all that was left. You can definitely tell that I mow in circles around the cache flower bed, tho', huh?

Taking the long route to the library...from behind Home Depot, overlooking Wasilla Lake.

But, in almost the opposite direction, mountains were hazed in. As I type, a heavy fog has settled, so I guess I know what direction it snuck up on us from.

Fun with shadows

Pretty mountains, pretty skies...

Looking out over Wasilla, over where Parks Highway nears Palmer-Wasilla HIghway from the east.

From the Pandemonium Bookstore parking lot, looking mostly SE.

A bit more directly Southerly view. I swear there was some silver in there, most likely the fog reflecting the sun, but it got lost in the download.

And how could I resist a quick stop at Wasilla Lake?

I didn't walk down the path today but looked like someone was sitting at a table enjoying the view.

Just a tiny bit of a closer look so you can compare the snow levels with previous pictures if you're so inclined. Then again, much easier to just take my word for it, it's creeping down the mountains again.
