Skywatch Friday

'Snow Crossing'

Last Friday through Saturday we had 25 inches of snow in just 24 hours drop on us, a record for Okieland this late in the year. Once the roads were accessible again it was a photographers dream and I made the most of it taking hundreds of pictures for posterity. We still have a little snow on the hills and in the ditches, otherwise we are once again snow free, despite a little more falling yesterday.

Beautiful blue sky, but do you still have snow?

Barb said...

This is wonderful - does look like they built a bridge to span the snow. We are due for another storm here in CO tomorrow! I'll try to send some to you...

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

ms - Well yes actually we do have a little still on the ground and it snowed again this morning.

Really stunning shot with that huge sky! I can't wait for more of your snow pics. I'm sure you got a few beauties!

Sylvia K said...

Incredible! and that is amazing to have that much snow in Oklahoma this time of year -- it has been an odd one hasn't it? We've had more snow in Seattle than they've had in 35 years. This is a fabulous shot!

Denise said...

I'm glad you made the most of your snowfall. You certainly captured an incredibly beautiful scene in this one. It is an awesome photo.

Sorry about all the snow you recently received. But for me who sees no snow where I live, I am always amazed at the combination of blue skies and white snow on the ground.

That's a lot of snow for this late in the year. Beautiful sky over white.

Wow, the blue really bounces off that white! Great photo...

I have a photo that you, being British (and female!), might enjoy. I lived in Britain for a while and enjoy all sorts of new linguistical funnies.

That is a truckload of snow!!

Mentally, we're over snow; however, your post reminds us that snow is not over yet. Love the photo. Snow sure does provide great cityscapes! How beautiful!

Gaelyn said...

Looks like there's snowbanks in that sky. Sure is pretty, from far away. Hope you don't get buried again.

Your sky is beautiful!!! but what happened to spring? Wasn't it on it's way?

Let me know when you want some heat sent from Africa. Warm season is up next and there is already lots to share!

erin said...

oh my gosh 25 inches of snow...like the shot you captured...beautiful.
we are in a rainy mode here...can't complain.
have a great weekend.

Louise said...

Wow! THat is such a typical late March Midwestern snowstorm, but you are right about a photographers dream, and you did it well. Snow is not always easy to get on a sunny day. Great job!

Daryl said...

Nice cold winter(!) sky in spring ...

Carol said...

Great photo...beautiful big sky...and I love the clean white snow...

Oz Girl said...

What a wonderful photo, I love it. The blue, blue sky, the train trestle, and the surrounding countryside all white and fluffy. :)

Glad you found me, it does sound like we have lots in common!

Lisa Wilson said...

Beautiful!! I kind of got blamed for sending snow to my relatives west of Tulsa. :-)

Sherri said...

That sky Sarah is just beautiful! The snow is always so nice when it is glistening isn't it! Good job!

fishing guy said...

Sarah: Thanks for sharing probably the last look at Winter for you. Oh let Spring come into our worlds.

SandyCarlson said...

That's an amazing amount of snow. Can you remember what green grass looks like? I am trying to imagine that much snow for so long. Your photo is great.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Hmmm. Snow this late? I'd laugh except...well, snow may fall on Ontario on Monday.

But snow sure is pretty, right? Nice photo!

Mare said...

Would you have believed it if they had told you that you'd have a snowday this late in the season?
We had a fluke= a snowday May 8th one year!!

Pearl Maple said...

Thanks for sharing with us all in Sky Watch Friday. Spring snow, bridges, water and a beautiful sky, perfect combination.

Thanks for your kind comments on my blog earlier.

It will be gone soon so you better have some pics in the stock if you badly want to remember what it´s like.:-)

John said...

What a great image for sky watch!

George said...

The snow under that beautiful blue sky makes a marvelous picture!
