A Word A Week Photo Challenge: Weather

Yesterday’s weather was raging for a good part of the day.

I woke up because of the strong winds howling outside and the sudden heavy rain splattering on my window. Of course, I picked up my camera right away and ran to the window and started snapping pictures in my half awake state.

Then I went downstairs to a clearer shot of outside but all I caught was the huge swaying evergreen in my backyard

This type of weather just makes me want to crawl back into bed and I did just that for a bit longer at least.

When I woke up, there was a snow squall warning in effect scheduled for the evening but ended up hitting a bit earlier.  It hit the first time when I was driving home from my piano lessons. Which I didn’t catch any pictures of but the second time, I was getting ready to eat.

These things are just scary.  It turns all dark and gloomy suddenly and BAM! Snow drifting everywhere, winds are at a crazy speed and if you were outside, you would barely be able to see an inch before you.

Like most crazy weather, it only lasted for a few minutes (maybe 5) and then died down.

The temperature did keep dropping all night and now we’re heading into a week that forecasted to be in the -20C to -30C.

Time to bundle up!
