We have had a terrific week of wintery weather. Yay! A little rain. A little snow. Wind. Mini hail pellets. The snow has been fast, and at times, furious. We had a squall that lasted all of 15 minutes. Then it was dry and calm, and only Mingus had visible snow. Hope you enjoy the views!

My second eye surgery was rescheduled to the 22nd.
The first eye has healed, and all is well. Amen!

The next, it is something entirely different.
Something it has never been before.

The moon was rising over Mingus while I worked. I think somehow it found its way to the paper. That was not a conscious decision. I just felt it needed some brightness.

While editing, I thought to tone down the Tawny. The pink. Does it look pink to you too? Tawny is listed as a light brown to brownish-orange color. This is the mid-value of the color. You may not notice a difference. But I’d be curious to know which you prefer.

I am not sure this next one is finished. It needs something. I will continue with it. Suggestions are always welcome.

I am laughing at myself. I got all excited about the snow. Little did I know a blizzard was on the way. The beautiful scene above is from two days after the storm. It may not have been a blizzard officially, but we were asked to stay off the roads for about 24 hours. We had a good solid day of heavy, blowing snow. It was AWESOME!

I’m sure this is the most snow we have had in the 5 years we have lived here. Scottsdale and Phoenix even had a dusting! Wowzers! By the second day, roads were dry and clear in our area.

We had more snow today, briefly. Then the sun came out and the cleared a bit. There was a roll of clouds hovering over Mingus. Then it spread out and moved forward, closer to us. I looked again, and it had collapsed, and was in the original hovering position.

I increased the vibrancy on this photo, but the clouds really were blindingly orange. It has been a BeAuTiFuL week in Arizona! Amen!

the snowflakes fall, each one a gem.
