I did not get out for a walk yesterday, but here is a picture I snapped this morning as the sun was coming up:
We’re in for a blustery day again today and the falling temperatures. Tomorrow morning, instead of the normal 52 degrees we’ve seen lately, it is supposed to be 42. Winter is just a wind blow away!
On Monday I posted a rainbow picture and then said I hoped to get out of town to find more photo opportunities later in the day. Well, I didn’t get out of town, but I did get to the edge of town in the afternoon in order to get a clear shot of this lovely rainbow:
At dusk, on the way back from picking Bill up at work, I pulled over and took this “sunset” picture:
Those clouds should have been a warning, as we woke up Tuesday morning to snow and ice everywhere! Not enough to shut things down here, although there were several accidents due to icy streets/roads. The eastern portion of Cochise County was pretty much shut down with several inches of snow and wind-driven snow drifts, along with some icy roads. Thankfully the sun was shining and things melted off fairly quickly. And no, I didn’t go out and take any pictures of the snow. The wind was blowing and it was COLD!
Over the weekend we had .39 inches of rain in our backyard (did I mention how much I love my new weather station?). This morning it has been misting off and on, although not in enough quantity to register, yet.
When I took Bill in to work this morning, I saw rainbows!
There’s just a hint of a second rainbow to the left of the brilliant rainbow. I took this as I was coming off post, looking back west to the Huachuca Mountains.
The sky/cloud/mountain interplay the last few days has been quite spectacular when we have been taking our daily walks. I took this yesterday afternoon:
This is looking east, towards the hills around Tombstone and the taller mountains beyond.
I hope to get a chance to drive out of town a bit sometime today and see what photo opportunities arise.
