Winter Storm Jonas

Winter Storm Jonas definitely didn’t fall short of expectation. At least not in our area! We got hit with more than 24″ of snow in two days. And most of it fell Saturday.

Our area was actually experiencing a pretty warm winter up until recently. Then it started to get colder and eventually “crap hit the fan,” and winter decided to come all at once…

Saturday felt like a never-ending storm. Snow continued to pile up and the wind was relentless. But Sunday was like “the calm after the storm.”¬†Although the shoveling wasn’t fun, the views were absolutely breathtaking. Here are a few shots from our backyard. Did I ever mention that I love this view?!

Living in a wooded area has a special intrigue. Looking out my back window, I caught this eerie and mystical view. It appeared like a scenic backdrop from a fairy tale.

The day started off with a fog in the air. But, by afternoon it had lifted. The temperature had increased to a comfortable 54 degrees. In just a few hours the winter seemed to transform into spring.
