What a Difference a Week Makes!

The sky in last week's SkyWatch post was a beautiful springlike blue. It is still winter, though, and the weather is not letting us forget that.  This snow was predicted last night, and I kept looking out of the window at work, as the sky got darker and darker.  Finally, around 1:30, the snow started out light, but each time I looked out a window, it was coming down heavier and heavier. 

When I got home from work, I took some photos of the sky out the front door.  The snowfall was still pretty heavy, but it didn't show up well in the photos.

The news at 5:00 said we'd gotten 3 inches so far, and could get another 2 or 3.  To see skies from all over the world, click on the link in the sidebar.


  1. May sunny days and blue skies return soon!


    The sky-seekers, some people say,
    Do not favor night over day;
    They always look up,
    The sky is their cup,
    And keeping it full’s their cachet!

  2. It's another white out sky. Winter has been quite relentless. Happy Sky Watch.

  3. My goodness, I'm feeling like a cuppa hot chocolate looking at your beautiful snow pictures.... Burrrr.

  4. Cold and wintry, but it makes for some nice photos. Mickie

  5. What I really like about this whole shywatch meme is the ability to see into other people’s seasons. You are holding out for spring - and I'm looking for the first day of autumn. Not bad for a few clicks of a mouse!

  7. Yes dear ol mr. winter stopped in on us this week as well...Wednesday was a unexpected whiteout snow it's just cold....gosh I am so ready for Spring. Love you have captured winter well!

  8. We've had similar weather surprises here in northern CA. Two weeks ago it felt like spring was here and the daffodils were starting to bloom. Then wham, we've had two weekends in a row with snow, hail and freezing temps. The daffs didn't know what hit them. The snow is pretty, though. Your area looks like a Christmas card!

  9. Hi -

    I love your snow shots. Splendor indeed.

    Thank you for sharing.

  10. Hi There, George and I have been in Georgia celebrating his birthday this week.. Spring has sprung down there... BUT--when we got home tonight, guess what we found here???? SNOW!!!!! GADS---guess Ole Man Winter is not finished with us either...


  11. Wow, is it ever going to stop snowing. Spring is here, I would love to see more signs of it here. Wonderful snowy photos.

  12. I am so tired of snow, Guess what I woke up to on April 18th! You got it the ground covered with snow!!! Today it is gloomy, gray, and sunless with winds out of the north west, making the 43 the thermometer says a lie. Feels like 32 according to, but to me it feels worse than 15 degrees.
    Oh Spring spring forth!
