It snowed last night! Yes, it certainly did! I got about six inches here at the house. No pictures. I left my camera in the car, and I'm not gonna traipse out there to get it. Listen, it is noon and I'm sill in my pjs. I mean, c'mon, what did you expect?
When I went to bed last night around 10:30, it was just beginning to snow, very lightly and very small flakes, but it was snowing. I woke to the snow thing morning, lots of it on the ground, and a fog with visibility of about 50 yards. It has snowed a little off and on this morning, but not much. Despite the fact that it is still below freezing and I can't see the sun, it appears to be melting a little.
I was suupposed to drive to Alamogordo today for an oil change, lunch with a cousin, and to photograph several grave markers. I rescheduled it for next week when the weather will be much more pleasant. I'm sure I could have made it, but I just don't see the sense in going out if I don't have to. My cousins says it was just raining down there, but I can't get there without going through the twists and turn of mountains. Not conducive to safe driving, so I didn't!
So why am I photographing grave markers? Well, I've volunteered with an organization called "Find a Grave." I signed up just a couple weeks ago and already have had five requests! As a volunteer, I will photograph the markers in areas near my home for people who live elsewhere. They will use these markers and the information on them to verify dates for genealogical searches. Since I actually kinda enjoy visiting cemeteries and reading the stones, wondering about the people and their stories, this will be fun for me. Also, while I'm there I will document the markers of my late husband and his family in the same cemetery.
I love days like this when I can just curl up under a lap blanket with my pups and watch the snow scene out the window.
