Many states got hit with a winter storm this week and Colorado was not immune. Having said that this is the first big storm we've had all year so we really needed the snow. All in all, the north-east part of our state and our specific area got about 8-10" of snow; at times we had blizzard conditions. This is a picture from our front door looking across the street to the two story house where our daughter lives. We were supposed to get a lot of snow this morning but blue sky is poking out from behind the clouds. I love the pristine beauty of new snow and yesterday was no exception. Hubby and I ran to a nearby town to pick up my birthday present and we saw three cars in ditches having to be towed out. I am very thankful for our Explorer and how well it drives in bad conditions.
Having mentioned my birthday I have to tell you I have the world's best husband; sorry ladies but that title goes to my man! We have had an old digital camera for many years and since moving here we really wanted a nice camera to capture wildlife and scenery with. I had researched the different brands and had settled on the brand we would get when we made our purchase. So Thursday while on errands hubby took me to an electronics store; I thought it was for something else but he decided to get me the camera for my birthday. We picked it up yesterday-I got a Nikon D60 and although there are newer makes out there, this is just what we need. I am not allowed to open it or play with it until Sunday which is fine but I can't wait to start taking better photos with it.
Blessings to you this day! Have a joy-filled weekend.
