Day 342 – December 8, 2018
One of my favorite, go-to, local locations, during the winter is the ski resort. When this place opens it is bursting with photo-ops. But for now preparations continue, behind the scenes, as the mountain readies to open. Just the thought of this, sends the community into a winter celebration. With a winter storm, that looked like it was targeting us, whipping up tremendous snowfalls to the south, I needed my “snow” fix. So out I went. I also didn’t have squat for a pic for today so I needed something! Rather than capitulating to my laziness, and going outside to shoot my neighbors house, I headed to my go-to. I am glad I did. Last time I was there they had just started snow making so only one trail was being blown. Tonight the front side of the mountain had coverage and most, if not all snow makers were up and whipping up snow at near blizzard speeds. The place looked like a snow globe. Since the mountain was still closed the whole area was quiet. It was just me, a pencil and pad (not really just needed to get that in but if there was one in the car I would have gotten it, but then I am in a rental, and my truck is still at the shop, nothing of mine is in there 🥴) my camera and the sounds of snow falling. I added another snow blowing picture below. I just really liked it, so I wanted to share. I hope all have a great Sunday! Let your quirks become strengths.
