We got about a foot of snow the other day. The day after was clear and cold at -20 F. We took an early morning ride up to the near-by ridge to see the sunrise colors.
The rest of the day was spent shoveling our driveway and walkways and soaking up the sunshine in our backyard. Due to the lack of wind during the snowstorm the spruce trees are blanketed in snow. Snow cones top the trees like wizard hats and the snow-piled branches have taken on fingerlike shapes. We'll enjoy it till the next wave of wind.
This tree just has too much character! :)
