It Snowed, It Melted.

Virginia is in a "temperate zone" as far as climate. This doesn't mean our weather lacks extremes, though. We had a warm sunny day on Monday, a wintry mix on Tuesday, snow all day Wednesday, and a mild day Thursday (today). Most of the snow melted. 
This Morning.
This Afternoon.
Yes, we are looking at the same mountains in pictures 2 and 3. Picture 3 is taken from farther away, along Gaffia Lodge Road.

After running some errands this afternoon, I wanted to take a few more wintry pictures. I made a stop at Catlett's Ford on the North Fork of the Shenandoah. It's not a ford any more, but was used as one many years ago when people crossed the river on horses. They would have engineered the crossing place with rocks but most of those have moved in spring floods since then. The river changes constantly. There is now a fishing area here.

Eventually I found my way to Long Meadow Road, wound around a bit and ran another errand before coming home.

Sharing with Fences and My Town Shoot Out


  1. How lovely! It's looking a lot like spring.

  2. In Europe is cold but no snow

  3. imagens lindas, mas não gosto de frio, sou do verão.
    Aqui em algumas cidades cai flocos de neve, bem pouco...mas faz a alegria de muita gente.

  4. Tats what it has been doing here, wish i was in those mountains

  5. Pretty mountain views! That's one good thing about snow this time of year--it doesn't stay around very long.

  6. Great images Linda. Have a lovely weekend.

  7. Lovely scenery - I'd love to live in a place where it snowed and it melted. But seriously, we missed the storm by about 30 miles and it hasn't snowed all week. Happy yours is melting off. Alana

  8. Some nice wintery scenes Linda ...

    All the best Jan

  9. Beautiful images, Linda. I love the scenery, it's so pretty.
