It snowed in Calgary and now it’s snowing on WordPress! Monday morning was absolutely beautiful. We had fresh snow and sunshine and no wind. It was so lovely I had to pull over several times on my way to yoga. I wanted to capture the essence of the look, in case it melted away while I was in class. This is what I saw:
The snow had obviously blown in, as the coverage was heavy on one side of the trees, while the back side was left bare. Two hours later when I was outside again, clumps of snow were falling off the trees as they absorbed the heat from the sun. I love the oversized coniferous trees which tower above the houses. In an older neighborhood you can see that people don’t plant with full size trees in mind. They either don’t believe the trees will get as big as they are supposed to, or they know they will have moved by then and it will be someone else’s problem!
