My World Tuesday ...

I like patterns in the snow. Some are the obvious foot, paw or hoof prints.

Some patterns are supplied by Mother Nature. We usually have quite dry, gritty snow here. It's useless for snowmen and snowball fights! It seems to evaporate rather than melt.

It's also quite windy here too and the grains of snow billow around. I can walk a pathway several times in a week, and the snow changes location and "moves" around in the breezes. Little drifts sneak 5 feet to the left, or hide under a tree, or snuggle up to a wagon wheel.

Sometimes I think it just looks like a rippled, sandy beach. Somewhat chillier but you still need your sunglasses.

  1. You are so right. That kind of snow is much like sand. Love the second pic with the wagon wheel.

  2. A bit different to the very wet and sticky snow we are having today!

  3. It really does look like sand!

    Are those dog prints? Or coyote? Or wolf? (gulp!)
