Last week was a whirlwind weather wise in my little world. The above photo is the oak tree in my backyard after a 12+ inch wet snowfall. It was beautiful but not without problems. It started with a warm day and snowmelt from a previous storm. Then the rain started which led to a day's rain with subsequent flooding and the governor of WV calling a state of emergency. Then, the rain turned to snow and it piled up quickly.
The sky was a gorgeous brilliant blue for a few hours that morning in our wonderland world. It was hard not to just sit and stare at the beauty that surrounded us. I felt like I was looking at the set of a Frozen movie and Anna and Elsa and Olaf must certainly be just around the bend. Problems arise with any storm but the beauty I saw and experienced will stay with me a long time.
