Great snow textures today

View more photos on picasa

Sunday morning, the day after:
What amazing changes this morning as the snow I photographed yesterday is crashing off of fences and trees.  The beauty that was vertical has become miniature snow mogul mounds.
Only 3 days ago we enjoyed 80 degree temperatures and no jackets.  Today we played tennis until the snow got serious.
