We awoke to snow on the ground today. Not a lot, not covering the ground, but snow. The temperature remains at 33º this afternoon and we had another snow flurry that is just ending (12:45 PM). Occasional snow flakes are still fluttering past my window. I'm sure my brother and my friends who live in the Adirondacks saw more snow. I heard the forecast for there was 3 inches. Snow is possible every month of the year in the Adirondacks. When climbing the 46 High Peaks I was in a mountaintop snow storm on June 1st. The photo is a Nanking Cherry bush by my front gate. A short time ago it was white & pink with flowers. Now the petals are on the ground and the white on the bush is all snow.
If I'm to be pigeon-holed as anything I'd have to say "I'm a photographer". I didn't make my living that way (retired from a civil service job in the Dept. of Labor) but photography is the thing I have done the longest (56 years and counting) and most passionately. My degree is in fine art ceramics and I continue to have an interest in art and crafts. On a political scale I'm in the same neighborhood with Mahatma Gandhi according to politicalcompass.org but mostly politics annoy me. It seems to be about pushing your views on others. I wish we could find a way to live without politics. I am a student of religion but not a church-goer. I like being out in nature either hiking or in my canoe.
