While Waiting for Snow
With a major snow storm knocking on the door, today seemed especially calm. Snow flurries at sunrise after an inch of rain really intensified all the colors in the woods. It was just above freezing, but a dusting during the night coated the cars and grass.
Snow was falling on the higher mountains to the northwest. Wolf Pen Mountain is the tallest peak at 3,100 feet.
2,800 foot Roan Horsetop Mountain is aglow in blue well after sunset, while car headlights illuminate the feather grass along Fibber Magee Drive. The southwest sky seems to emit a greenish aura as new clouds begin to move in.
