More Snow Photos

On Saturday, after Livie, Andrew, and I got home from the University, Liv and I had some time to play outside in the snow. (Andrew isn't a big fan of winter weather, so I gladly went outside with Liv.)

The snowdrift gets a thumbs-up!

She wanted me to get a photo of her belly flop in the snow.

Time for snow angels!

Sunlight on snow. Liv and I love the snow's "glittery" effect.

And then the clouds moved in from the west.

Although the clouds moved in Saturday afternoon, we were all glad they held off for most of the day. We had a lot of good outdoor time.

Sunday brought more clear skies; I for one, was glad the clouds had moved OUT (temporarily, at least). However, it was pretty windy, and a little too "warm" for snow. It ended up being around 38°F and sunny, so other than the snow drifts, most of the thin layers of snow had melted, leaving that wet, fertile scent of hibernating farmland. Livie and I still went out and enjoyed what snow was left. 

We were out for about 30-45 minutes before the wind really started picking up. The NOAA website said our area was having winds around 18 MPH, with gusts up to about 30 MPH, so the windchill ended up being about 25°F.

Sonya, thanks for stopping by my blog. I love your snow... KC has not had any snow except dustings this winter. I am not complain, just no snow photos. I love your caption "Dreaming of brilliantly clear Southwestern....." I would give anything to be under southwestern skies too.

Oh my goodness, I'm cold just looking at it. Snow can be pretty, especially when that sun hits it and gives it the "glittery" effect. Looks like Livie is enjoying the winter!

Livie looks like she had a blast. Did you play in the snow too? Wind always makes it twice as freezing! At least the sun was out. =)

Yep, the wind pushed through these hills and hollers with gusto yesterday too!

I adore your little angel of the snow. How sweet!!!

God bless and have a fantastic week!!! :o)
