The weirdness of snow

Yesterday morning, it started snowing before the sun rose. It was a chilly 20 degrees F (-7c). So the funny thing is that it was sticking to the roads rather than to lawns. When it's warmer, the reverse is true.

You would need a degree in physics to explain why. (My buddy Rob could explain why, I'm sure.)

By the way, just for fun, I thought I'd show you the same scene at 5:10 pm. (The top shot was taken at 7:20 am.) The snow did end up sticking. And it's still cold in Denver.

No snow here, but it was 25 degrees at 8:00 A.M. Even that's to cold for my tastes.

My favorite aspect of snow is its reflective qualities. You've illustrated it beautifully in these two pictures. It's grey, blue, white, pink and orange all depending on which sky shines upon it.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, by the way! I'm not sure how you found me, but thanks. :)
