CSU Oval

CSU Oval

We awoke to light snow yesterday morning then watched it increase to a beautiful winter snowfall. I left home early to find a spot near a window at Mugs coffeehouse to watch it snow. Glad I did. When I left an hour and a half later I walked across the street to the oval on campus for this image. Very few people were out due to the weather and it was Martin Luther King Day so there were almost no tracks in the snow. It stayed cold all day even though the sun came out in the afternoon. It was 2 degrees at 6:30 this morning. Brrrr!

Stay Warm

Cold. That pretty much describes the weather for the past week. We had a couple inches of snow on December 30 and with the cold it’s still on the ground.

Since I’m not a party person I was under the covers with a book by 9:00 pm on New Years Eve. However, I was up early on New Years day, put on a crockpot of chicken tortilla soup then met  a longtime friend for coffee. Later in the afternoon, even though it was still cold, I ventured out for a walk with my camera.  I might as well start my new year with camera in my hand. And, it’s the same camera as the past 3 years. Hope everyone enjoyed their holidays. And, stay warm!

Dusting of Snow

Dusting of Snow

Awoke to a lite dusting of snow and a temperature of 30 degrees. With such nice weather the past few days we can be lulled into forgetting it is December with the Winter Solstice only a week away. Hope you have a great day and stay warm.

Walked to a coffeehouse last week to meet a friend for a cup of coffee and their breakfast enchiladas. 🙂 The temperature was somewhere between 25 and 30 degrees  (F). I am still surprised how many people in Fort Collins ride bicycles in all sorts of weather. They just gear up for whatever nature brings on. I’m actually envious of their commitment to riding.

Do Not Overlook

Alan Watts says, “Normally, we do not so much look at things as overlook them.” I like to think my years looking through a viewfinder, being more aware, awake, enlightened or whatever you call it  has helped to not overlook as often.

Its Snowing

Bright and Colorful

Bright and Colorful

It is lightly snowing this morning with 2-4 inches accumulation. It has let up as I can see blue sky and sunlight trying to break through.  It is also cold, about 27 degrees and expected to dip into the teens tonight. Instead of posting an image of snow I decided to post an image I took yesterday morning on my campus walk. It is bright, colorful and shouts of fall colors rather than our world of white we have today. May you have a super Awesome day!
