Blizzard 2011

White out..as it was falling. Snowing and blowing.
You could hardly see anything.

Two days later when the sun came out.

These are two little watercolor paintings that I did of the storm. I was trying to get that "it is snowing look" in the first one. The second one you can see that the sun came out. But...I did not paint enough snow. They say we had 20 " and that this was the 3rd worst storm that we have had. Some of the drifts were many feet tall. Lots of shoveling. The whole city was closed yesterday and many businesses were closed today. All the schools were closed!!

Hi Irina and Ramesh..thanks for taking the time to comment on our blizzard of 2011. It was really something else. Seeing (not seeing) a white out...wow. It is so powerful. There was even lightning storms at the same time. We were locked in the house for 2 days and I am looking forward to going out tomorrow to take new photos. So watch for more snow scenes. lol

Hi Hmuxo...did you get to experience the white out. It was awesome. I am hoping to get out tomorrow to take more photos.
Thanks for your compliment. There might be more snow scenes coming. lol

It may not have been so funny to be there, but it certainly is very pretty yo look at.
