Snowy Pictures

So, it’s been snowing here lately. It doesn’t snow here a lot, so there’s been a lot of this stuff on my facespace:

That and everything is closed… well, stores and restaurants are open, but they close early. School is closed, and that’s good because the roads are not safe. A lot of people here honestly do not know how to drive in the snow because they are transplants from places that have no snow and because we don’t really have snow a lot here. To give y’all an idea of how much snow we’ve gotten so far, here’s a picture of our front yard:

So, I’ve been messing around in Photoshop because I take pictures with my phone and the original pictures are huge. But I copied and pasted the above from my Facespace so that should be okay… Still, it looks kind of… drab. Don’t you think? Here’s a Photoshopped version:

Basically all I did was correct the lens warp, bring out the white (because snow), add a blue filter, and (of course) crop it a bit. Still, a bit of fiddling and it looks pretty nice. Anyway, as an aside, I’m still coughing up a lung… I went to the doctor on Friday (before the snow started) and he says I have a sinus infection. He doesn’t know why I’m coughing, but I do have a sinus infection. So I have antibiotics for that. It’s only been a day. Since Doug’s been laid off, I don’t know if I’ll have the insurance to see the specialist the doctor wants me to see. But hey, at least my sinuses will clear up… hopefully. I’ll see another specialist eventually — maybe. I so don’t want jump on that merry-go-round again.

So anyway, back to the snow… here are a few more pictures. If you saw them on my facespace, you’ll notice that I prettied them up a bit. It’s something to do. 🙂 I’m especially proud of the edits to the car picture: I think I made it look less like a picture of a picture — it’s a picture of my security camera feed.

Remember, y’all, there’s more storm forecast for tonight and “the big storm” isn’t forecast until tomorrow. This is more snow than this area has seen in a long time. And we got to be here for it. ^_^

And, I’m out of energy right now. I’m tired. Coughing makes me tired. Hurts my chest too. Blah. Doug and I are going to hunker down and wait out the storm. Catch y’all on the flip side.

    This is the first year here where we haven’t been buried to our eyeballs in snow by this time year. Do I mind?

    Are you kidding?

    It’s just so much easier and also, I don’t have come up with $400/month for driveway plowing! It’s $50 each plowing and when you get two or three heavy snows a week, that money adds up really fast.

    I miss the prettiness, though. The world is very pretty all dressed in white and the dogs enjoy it, as long as we shovel paths for them (short legged).
