Looking Around (Dec 2009)

  It snowed on December 5, 2009. So the next day, we shot some pics. You can compare these with the original shots of Original Shots of 2001 as well as the opposite end of the season spectrum of May 2009.

  Another picture similar to what you may see in the Looking Around of May 2009. This was about eight inches of snow. The rocks seem to hold thermal energy better than the less dense organic material surrounding, so they melt the snow faster. Vertical sides help too. Click to Enlarge

  Here is the Medium Picket Fence under snow attack. The snow started heavy and wet, but seemed to dry up over the night. I expect the water drained out and will go down into the cracks in the incomplete Front Wall to crack it more.. Click to Enlarge

  Close up of the Pergola and Round Garden. Looks like a snow tongue coming off the yard tub. You may also note the second headless statue, there appearing next to the second column from the left. Click to Enlarge
