Snow Expected

with 2 comments

They tell us to expect fresh snow this week after a prolonged span of February days without frozen precipitation piling up. I have been enjoying the freedom from needing to plow and shovel, but I get a sense that I haven’t enjoyed it as much as I should. Now that this freedom is coming to an end, it feels like I have taken the pause for granted.

I’ve always felt a fondness for the look of one thing fading into another. Especially, gradual gradients. Yesterday, I took pictures of the old snow where it was melting back to reveal the ground below.

It has a bit of a yin and yang feeling to it.

I’m also fascinated by the way leaves melt into the snow.

Looks like there was a fish beside it. Notice the hint of a yin and yang curve in those two, as well.

If the forecast is correct, it will all be covered in white again before the week is over. The cosmic duality of opposing forces of winter precipitation covering the dark earth.

  1. We are still enduring mud season. The worst of the mud may be over but I am still moving rocks and dirt to places to try and repair the terrible ruts. I’m still not sure what I will do in the pasture across the road where we have had to use the ATV to haul water to the horses.

    • I completely sympathize with your plight dealing with mud and ruts. We are so lucky to enjoy the luxury of not needing to haul water for horses.
