winter sky

A wintry mix is predicted. I am back home sitting on the couch in front of the fire, laptop in lap. This picture was taken last week up at the lookout, it looks cold...



the clouds are as thick as quilt batting
blocking out the sun in the gray winter sky

the trees are stripped bare of their leaves
their limbs trembling in the cold winter wind

the ancient blue mountain peaks fade away
the hues becoming lighter until mountain blends with sky

I'm glad you are now home, enjoying your comforts and a warm fire. That picture of the mountains was awesome.

We also had about an inch of snow on the ground when we woke early this morning. More expected later. For now, it's good to look out and see the beauty of the silent world covered with a white mantle of fluffy white snow.

Drink some hot chocolate for us. Hope you don't get any ice with this storm.

you have such a way with words and with the picture I can almost imagine myself there exept the only snow I want to see is in pictures.
