Unexpected


The other morning we woke up to a surprise. Snow had fallen but only in small parts of the city. It was pretty light and fluffy and it didn't last long after the sun was fully out from behind the clouds.

That's what I like about SF...you have the pleasure of seeing light, fluffy snow, which swiftly disappears...usually!

A little bit of fluffy snow, followed by sun and melting, is a good formula. Nice photo, Randy. Have a good weekend.

It looks like little tufts of cotton sitting on this lovely iron work.

The snow on the decorative ironwork looks really pretty.

I love it when the snow highlights something and really changes its look.

Glad you caught the sparkles in the snow before it melted. We're looking at rain this weekend. It makes the weeds...I mean spring flowers grow. :)

I'd be surprised here if I'd wake up to a sunny morning... :(
God bless you!

It would be even more unexpected if you didn't see the snow on the bench and sat down!

A nice shot and especially so when I hear that the white stuff melted away quickly!

Sunshine and snow really make that ironwork pretty - like lace.

I think it would be nice to see it, be in it, and then be out of it! Nice!

I love the snow pictures lately! They're so beautiful. Thanks for stopping by my blog so frequently. I've been lax in coming to your neighbourhood so I thought I'd stop in and take a peek. I'm always glad when I do.
