Photo Hunt: Wide

      9 Comments on Photo Hunt: Wide

Photo Hunt theme is Wide and my photo today is the wide backyard of my brother’s home in Missouri. When I left his home in mid-October, the weather was just cool and lovely. The Autumn colors were so pretty to look at too. It was my first Autumn experience.

But look at it now, two days after Thanksgiving. Everything is covered in snow. I can’t imagine living under those weather conditions. I don’t like the cold climate.

This is a photo of their neighbor’s home, right across their own home. I still remember the cool breeze and pristine blue skies and just being with my youngest brother.

Just a few minutes ago, my brother emailed me that they got hit by an ice storm and ” We are literally covered by 1/2 inch of ice”. This means no work and school.

I hope they are warm and safe despite the ice storm.

For those based in the USA, how has your weather been?

  • 1/2 inch and they don’t have work and school in Missouri? Not fair! 😉

    Right now we have 2-3 inches of snow in the NY/NJ area and that is still considered mild snow fall.

    • It is 1/2 inch ICE though not just snow.

  • It’s amazing how much weather can change the look of a place!

  • Wow, the contrast is amazing. The snow-covered photos are like postcards. 🙂 I hope your bro and his family are all right.

    • they are okay naman. the photos are just plainly black and white. It’s good they have backup emergency power in case the cold weather freezes the lines.

  • We have about 10 inches of snow here in NY, with more expected tomorrow. We are used to it. It’s nice, until the end of January. Your photos are lovely.

    I did Photo Hunters today, too! I hope you can visit, and leave your link.

  • i love autumn too. but snow is nice once in a while. i experienced d 4 seasons when i was studying in California, 20 years ago. Am i that old?

  • South Dakota has been hit by two snow storms already just for this week. The snow in front of my house is waist-deep. Self-shoveling won’t do any good to me in a -35 degrees F temperature.

    And snow service trucks are too expensive — i hate snow storms!

  • What a huge difference the passage of time makes. And soon enough, before you know it, the snow will be gone, and things will be green again.
