I guess Winter has officially arrived, outside the windows there is white stuff everywhere. Kind of weird since there was no snow when we left Fort Collins and now there is. Makes me feel like I’ve been gone longer than 11 days.
The morning after we got back in to town Mike got up at sun rise and snapped these pictures.
The sunrise from our balcony
The road in front of our house
A closeup of snow
You can actually see the individual snowflakes
I can’t help but notice how this snow is different from the white stuff in Chicagoland. It’s very fluffy, dry and shimmers like diamonds. And what is also weird for me is that sky is blue and the sun is shining even though there is snow on the ground. Seems like in the Midwest most winter days are overcast.
The shots below I took around the neighborhood while taking a walk.
Snow shimmering in the sun
Don't need to go far to catch a hike, plenty of unofficial trails behind the house
And even more official walking and bicycling paths near by, this path goes past our house
Tree branches covered in snow
