A dusting of snow...

 
Sunrise - probably the last we will see of the sun today...

 
The road to work.

 
Hm, so tempting to just go for a stroll in the woods...


 
I guess this is the best sort of snow - very pretty without causing any problems for those who need to travel.

Very nice show scenes. Looks chilly. Hope all that snow doesn't cause you problems on the ride in.

Funny.... you have snow, and here it's been raining all weekend and all our snow has melted. Other parts of Canada are snowed in though.

Agg79 - no problem with the ride, and it was just chilly, my body was too warm if anything!

Shammickite - This winter has been totally messed up, hasn't it? Hard to dispute climate change after a winter like this!

Beautiful pictures, RC! Much prettier than the rain you've been getting lately.

Rock Chef said...

ShadowRun300 - Yes, we have had more than our share of rain recently...

Riot Kitty said...

That is gorgeous, but can't believe you biked it! Brr.

Rock Chef said...

I have cycled in far worse...

You had some beautiful scenery on your ride in today!

I always loved seeing it fall. Seeing it at daylight before foot prints ruined it. And I always detested the slush that hangs on, gathering dirt, for weeks.

Rock Chef said...

Terri - Yes it was a very nice ride - cycling in fresh snow is great and if you keep your eyes open you get to see all sorts of wonderful stuff.

Lotta Joy - Luckily the snow turned straight into rain yesterday afternoon, so we are back to normal wet and mud. Cycling in slush is horrible, especially as you never know if there is ice hiding underneath it...

Nice shots.

Abby said...

Pretty!

Do you cover your face for the chilly rides? It seems that's always the first to go for me.

Rock Chef said...

Abby - I sometimes cover my chin but hate anything over my mouth, so occasionally I feel like my face is freezing off :-( Luckily temps here rarely drop that low, though.

You captured some pretty good photos here. What is the bit of red covered with snow?
I like the angle of the branch with the curling snow across the limb.

that sunset is amazeballs.

Rock Chef said...

CiCi - it is some sort of berry, maybe a rose hip? I am not great with plants :-(

Meleah - thanks. Resent sunrises (this is a rise, not a set) have been pretty good, a bit "A-bomb" if you get me! :-)
