Intermission between Blizzards

 Before rain rode in on Chinook winds a couple weeks ago week, I had the opportunity to photograph some of the old, historic cabins and homes in Hope.

The rain and warm temperatures didn't do much to eradicate snow in my neighborhood.  Sometime during that thawing mess, another foot or so fell.

I worked Friday, once again running the mail route.   Mild temperatures, sun with warmth to it, and dry pavement.  I could almost believe.

In fact, I had to keep kicking myself back into reality.  It's still February.  More snow.  More cold.  More winter.   Knock off the wishful thinking.

Saturday was another beautiful day.  Dry pavement.  Warm sun.  Had business to attend to and all was well with the world.

The blizzard held off until I was home.


  1. i used to visit Hope frequently in the late 60's. Remember having coffee in that Cafe. Brings back many memories. Thank You.

  2. I love your winter wonderland photos, Gully. They're unbelievably beautiful. Thanks for getting out there and snagging them to share.
