Winter Skies

Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services

Inspired by A. of Ron and Alexandra Seigel recent sky photos I thought I'd share three photos I took today from my neighborhood in Minot North Dakota.

I probably should have done a little photo "magic" to show off a bit more color but this is pretty much how it really was. It was a good day for a photo walk as it was a balmy 36 degrees above zero. That is quite an improvement over the last week or two.

Those are beautiful winter scenes, Bob.  I love visiting snow, which I can easily do about 40 miles away from home.  But, I'd hate shoveling it!

Good morning Bob. More snow than Chicago but the temps are about the same. We are visiting friends in Florida and the weather has been a bit cool. It is fun to see heavy winter apparel on people with temps in the 50’s.Where are my shorts? Enjoy your day

I can totally relate Wayne Martin as the few times I've been to FL I was in shorts and the natives were in parkas.

You are quite brave for getting out in that cold weather to snap photos to share with us.  It looks very cold there.

Yesterday was beautiful Brian England . The funny thing with our winters are that after a cold snap with sub-zero temps you see people out in shorts when it hits 30 degrees above zero.

Good morning Bob - well we are expecting snow in the evening today but it will have to warm up from the 3 degrees it is now to have that happen.

I hate to tell you this Grant Schneider but I've seen snowfall at sub-zero temps many times. Those are the worst, most dangerous blizzards.

In that last photo I see the sky is peeking out. Whoo hoo! 36º and sunshine!

You understand Kat Palmiotti 😉. It's fun to see people out in shorts among mountains of snow piles acting as if Spring has arrived.

Snow photos are amazing.  Especially when they are black and whites.  Have a wonderful Sunday. Rest up and be ready for a knock-out-of-the-park work week starting tomorrow.  bill

Hello Bob - it certainly creates a "BRRR-it's cold" impression for me.  And I think that must be evident to anyone reading your post.

It's been a very good Sunday Ron and Alexandra Seigel . I LOVE Sundays as it is like a two day bonus to me. Half a day of fellowship with our church family and half a day at home with family. It's a GREAT day. 😃

You have been very lucky Will Hamm as mine has already run more this year than the last 3 years combined.

You are right Ed Silva and day after day of nothing but grey can wear on you so even the slighted about of blue can bring great joy and peace.
