On February 21 nine inches of snow fell.  This is what that storm looked like.  Waiting on another one this afternoon.  I recently noticed that the weather channel is naming these winter storms.  Today's is called Rocky.

January 14.  Frosty woods.

January. This is what it looks like.  Across the road into the wooded valley.

Last photo in the pattern exercise.

Another photo in the pattern exercise.  I should have taken this from the other side of the light pole, but I was in a hurry to get to the City Market before closing time.  I made it, but next time I’ll just take a few minutes to get this kind of opportunity right.  

What an admirable feat!  With just the little bit of snow on the ground this snowman is to be praised.  Good job people.

O.K. Not exactly what I had in mind when I started the patterns in Nature exercise for this week, but that’s part of the process. This is the only snowman I spotted after the New Year’s Day snowfall. What an admirable feat! With just the little bit of snow on the ground this snowman is to be praised. Good job people.
