Kentucky Weather

I've heard people say that if you don't like the weather here in Kentucky to just stick around, because it will change.
Well the past few weeks has definitely proven that statement to be true. We have had some very cold temperatures, snow, ice, rain and sun.
On the 6th, I took my daughter to school and went back home for about an hour before heading to the office. In the hour that I was at home we received enough snow to cover the yard. The temperature was above freezing and the snow was a powdery snow so it stuck only to the ground, not the roads. Traveling was not a problem and it was gone by the next day.

Except for frozen ponds, I guess. I drive past this pond on the way to my daughter's school and I couldn't resist stopping to get a picture or two of this beautiful wintry scene. I like how the snow is only on the pond.

Plus, the trees were casting shadows on the snow covered pond. How could I not shoot that scene.

By the next week, the temperature was in the teens with wind chills in single digits. On the 13th we received three inches of snow. The kids were happy because school was canceled.

This picture is the small snow drift between my house and the neighbors.

Here is a small line in the snow behind our garage, not really sure what caused it, but thought it was interesting.

School was out for three days, but the first two were too cold for the girls to get out. By the third day they were ready to venture outside for a few pictures in the snow.

We thought that school would be out again due to the 1/4 inch of ice that covered everything on the night of the 15th. But by the next morning the ice was gone and it was raining. So off to school they went.
The next day the sun was shinning and everything was back to normal.
Awwww, Kentucky weather.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures and that you head over to Hey Harriet to see other Shadow Shots from around the world.

Evening Shadows

I haven't had much of a chance to catch many shadow shots this week. It has been a very busy week. But, I did happen to see this as we were locking up one night.
Every evening as we are leaving the Walk/Don't Walk light casts it's shadow on the wall inside the main lobby. You can also see part of the logo that is printed on the window.
Not a very exciting shadow, but a shadow none the less. Be sure to head over to Hey Harriet and check out what others have posted.
