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.

Blue Sky, Maple Tree

Our weather has been unseasonable warm.  It's supposed to get cold again next week, but spring is in the air.  I have a bug of some kind, and am about to take a nap, but I had to step out the front door and take a few photos for SkyWatch Friday first.

SkyWatch Friday

Our grandson was sick Saturday, so he didn't come over, like he normally does.  Larry and I decided to go to Omaha because we had a coupon that I wanted to use for a Le Creuset pan.  I'm pretty sure he took the same route as our daughter-in-law did when we went in January, but the weather was a bit different Saturday, and there was more snow.  Here are some of the photos I took for SWF from the window.  (BTW, Larry isn't thrilled by my taking bunches of photos when he's driving, but he cleaned my window for me before we left when I asked him to.  Isn't that sweet?)

We left about a half an hour later than we did last time.  The sunrise is earlier, too, but it was pretty cloudy, so not much sun shown through.

This is the Platte River.

By early afternoon, it started to rain.  These are photos I took on the way home.  We're thankful it didn't freeze when we were driving. 

I rolled my window down and up to see if it would clear up.  Instead, it produced this swirling effect.  I kind of like it.
