Winter Storm – Vulcan? Naming winter storms. . .

So, this is the first year winter storms are being named…. and, I’m beginning to wonder if this is some hint to foreseeable increased storms of all seasons. Anywho, these are some photos from around the yard captured on the day the storm hit. Believe it was Wednesday, March 12, 2014. A day that I already was scheduled to have off! Wooot!


Winter storms get a name now?

Sunday Photo Journey

Well, I have Sunday off from now on, until the next holiday season. Sunday’s are sometimes busy, and sometimes I just take a day to rest and recoup from a long week of work.

This Sunday in particular, the weather has notably warmed up and snow is melting fast, and I really didn’t get a chance to do some leisurely photo journal bogging. I went with one of my many photog friends and scoured the landscape, looking for scenes and wildlife… below are a few photos. I’m really lucky to have photog friends who like to just get out and spend a day on a photo excursion.
