Chancy Sunrise

Posted in Photography by leahyetter on December 28, 2011

I risked life and limb this morning to bring you our sunrise. I hope you like it.

No, but really, the wind is howling at 50mph with 65mph gusts today. As you can see, the 8 inches of snow has blown off of the meadow and it has warmed up from the teens all the way to the 40’s.
We had a white Christmas though. We should have considered ourselves snowed in but we were stubborn. We busted through snow drifts and drove off-road to get out and visit family. It was worth it. We had a good time with family and friends.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and are recovering from it all.

        This makes me laugh… I have the same uniform, but I have neighbors which makes the uniform slightly more embarrassing. Glad you didn’t blow away Leah!

        Yeah, I’m glad I don’t have neighbors close enough to see the uniform. They’d be pretty put off by it I’m sure!
