My Shadowy Six Words For This Week

I prefer sunny days to snow!
We had a lot of snow over the holidays. (about 2 feet!)
 It didn't start to melt and go away until just this past week.
 We are enjoying the warmth of clear sunny skies.
What has your weather been like?

    I absolutely love this photo! It just really speaks to me!

  2. Having grown up in the snowbanks of South Dakota, I love our much warmer winter weather in West Texas. We have some cold days, but a nice balance of warm sunny ones in the 70's. I can live with that!

  3. I do love your warm, sunny capture for the day, Kathe!! Our weather hasn't been so cold, but GRAY and WET!! I had to haunt my files to find sunshine and shadows for today! Enjoy your weekend! Hope it's SUNNY!

  4. Such intrigue ... draws me in.

  5. After so much rain that the creeks are still super high, we've had several days of sunshine. And we needed them!

    Snow is pretty to look at, but i wouldn't be able to live in it.

  6. I would love to have a warm up. It is very cold right now!

  7. lovely warm colours in this shot...

  8. Gorgeous photo!

    I prefer the sun, too—until we're in the midst of a humid summer, that is!

    Have a nice weekend. :)

  9. Great photo! I'm with you about the sunny days, and have arranged to live where there is no snow. However we have this year already experienced a heatwave followed by torrential rain and the danger of flooding. Some places have already had fires and/or floods.

  10. Here in Kansas we just keep going back and forth from warm to cold and we don't know how to dress these days. We are hoping to get some rain tonight...as we need it because of the drought.

    Weather is changing. We used to get lots of snow and also ice storms here in the winter...but not so much anymore.

    One thing for sure is the good ole' Kansas wind...we always have plenty of that. Ugh!

  11. We seem to be in a pattern I remember from my youth in CT - cold (20s-30s), lots of nuisance 2-3 inch snows. Not like last year (too warm) or 2011 (too snowy). Just tight, but like papa bear - too cold! Despite all your snow, Oregon is a beautiful state!

  12. Beautiful shadow shapes on this delightful mellow canvas! Lovely photo!

    Very cool photo indeed.

    Here on Vermont's Canadian border, we have not so much snow (except man-made up on the ski mtns), but we haven't seen any temps much above zero in weeks.

  14. Beautiful shadow shot ~ so warm and inviting ~

  15. With snow like that, I would have to stay inside, pull your blind and enjoy the view.

  16. Today is cold in Portland, maybe forty degrees. Not nearly as bad as some parts of the country but cold enough to make me fantasize about warmer days.

  17. Great shadow shot, very bold shadows.
    Our weather has been all over the place, warm for a few days then cold. We had freezing rain and ice on Friday. This weeks forecast calls for a daytime high of 70 degrees on Tuesday and on Friday the high will only reach 29....crazy. Guess that is why they say, if you don't like the weather in Kentucky just stick around a few days because it will change!

  18. My response to your own six words: I'm in agreement with you here!

    Neat shadow on the bamboo like fixture.

  19. I love this. Shadows tell stories...

  20. i agree with your six words. this past week has been a snow. prefer that to this coming week...40 and rain...making a real mess with all the fresh snow!!!
