Snow Covered Mountains in the Late Evening Sun

Fresh Snow on the Mountains

Fresh Snow on the Mountains

The sun finally came out last night and melted the little bit of snow that had fallen here yesterday. It’s supposed to warm up a bit and rain for the next few days, which seems to me to be much more fitting weather for the Autumn season.

As the clouds parted from in front of the mountains last night, I was treated to a beautiful view of the late evening sun lighting up the freshly fallen snow. Despite the fact that I feel it’s too early for snow to be falling, I think the mountains do look rather pretty all dressed in white.

Snow Has Arrived

Snow on the Rooftops

It may only be the second day of Autumn, but it’s beginning to look and feel like the first day of Winter here. The temperature is currently 34 degrees, and it’s been snowing lightly since early this morning. The mountains are covered in clouds right now, but when the clouds part, I’m sure I’m going to find that the snow-kissed mountains have turned into snow-covered mountains. The ground is still pretty warm though, so the snow that has accumulated today should melt away pretty quickly. (I hope)

Here’s hoping that the weather is warmer and more “autumn-like” in your neck of the woods. Have a wonderful day everyone!

Autumn Snowfall

First Snowfall of the Season

First Snowfall of the Season

According to the calendar it is still Autumn, but it sure is looking like a Winter Wonderland around here now. We received our first measurable snowfall on Sunday, and it continued to snow off and on through Halloween – making the streets a bit slick and hard to navigate for all the little trick-or-treaters.

The snow has tapered off, but now it is very windy, clear and cold. The low temperature is supposed to be 12 degrees tonight. Brrr!! I think I’ll be spending the evening curled up in front of the fireplace, alongside my cat. :)

For those of you who love snow, I thought I would share a few of the photos that I took of our first snowfall.

Snowy Chugach Mountains
There is definitely more snow on the Chugach Mountains.



Scarecrow
My scarecrow Halloween decoration looks like he’s sporting a snowy white bow tie.



Snowy bird feeder
I’d better clean off this bird feeder so my feathered friends can get a bite to eat.



Clean bird feeder
There, that’s better.



Snow covered deck chairs
I don’t think I’ll be using the deck chairs for a while. :)



Snowy tree

It’s a picture perfect day here today. Current temperature is 36 degrees, and the sky is blue.

And, even though the temperature is in the 30’s, you can still find Canadian Geese hanging out in the area. I guess they’re not in too big of a hurry to leave Alaska. ;)
