The Snow Cometh

. . . and winter storms continue and continue

An earlier post showed a lovely sunset on late Tuesday afternoon drive, followed by a sunrise scene from on Wednesday morning.

This was the scene outside our hotel room a short time ago tonight . . .


This current road trip was is a short in-state road trip to visit friends as a delayed birthday gift from Grenville. 

This snow storm, the latest in so many this winter, IS a serious problem for folks in many states, especially our GA and NC neighbors and in our home state of NJ. We contacted friends and family; all are safe — as we hope you and your loved ones are too.

We stayed in the hotel today and had a wonderful video-chat "visit" with blogger friends we were planning to meet today. There's still time to "see" them before we leave on the weekend, so all is good.
Yesterday, while the weather was OK, we were able to spend the day with friends. You will see where we explored in a later post.


These scenes were taken from our hotel window tonight using the special effects filters on an Olympus Tough weatherproof camera (but I was indoors). The snow that had stopped earlier today was followed by rain, and now it's snowing again.

Thanks for the comments, as always, on the sunset/sunrise photos; taken from the car and hotel windows. All were SOOC (straight out of camera), like these shots. 

And, if you or loved ones are in states affected by this winter weather, we hope you all are warm and safe.

The weather has been so crazy...we've been watching all of it unfold on world news. It snowed here today too, but maybe only a few inches. Stay safe and warm!

I've been paying attention to the news. What for us is just another snowfall is horrendous in areas that just don't have the experience with it.

Having been stuck in a hotel room with an early October snowfall in Philadelphia and a power outage to go with it, I can sympathize. Give it a day or two and it'll all be gone. Here we're back to more normal temps of 10 to 20 below. We've got a couple more months before the snow will be gone however.

You guys are very brave to head out on the road when there is a storm coming. This Canadian would stay home.

This seems like the winter that never ends! Neat pictures! I like the special filters.

That is a lovely scene from your room. Please be take it easy on the roads. We are thawing out here but some roads still have problems.

BE careful!
