I woke this morning with a complete covering of dense fog again. There was a coating of frozen fog, hoar frost, on the trees once again.
It is really pretty on the long needles of the Ponderosa pines, especially.
Now, two hours later, the cloud has moved down the mountain and is settled in the valley below me. Capitan must be socked in. You can see from this photo that it is low enough for the mountains to poke out above it.
Although I'm in the bright sun now, and the cloud/fog has moved down a thousand feet or so, the frost on my trees is still very much present. You can see the frost in the tree in the lower left hand corner.
This is so pretty. I'm looking forward to warmer weather and having the snow gone, but I'm not complaining. The temperature is rapidly climbing now. It was 20° at 7:00 and now (9:20) it is 35.6°. In the 15 minutes since I took the photo, the frost is nearly all gone.
There is another storm poised to come in tonight. The forecast of accumulation is still vague, but it seems that I'm at the elevation to get the greatest amount of what does fall. Go figure! I guess I'll have to wait and see, right? OK, that's something I do pretty well.
Waiting ....... waiting ....... waiting ....... waiting ....................
