Rock of Ages

I’m dedicating this week’s posts and images to my friends in “The Great White North”, which looking at the current weather report, is anywhere north of the Mason-Dixon line. It looks like you folks are in for some darn cold temperatures and a whole lot of SNOW later this week. We had a couple of inches of snow a few weeks ago and that was plenty for me. I honestly don’t know how I ever survived in the suburbs of Chicago and Philadelphia all those years ago.

So here’s to you my friends. Summertime in Texas!

  1. I can *feel* the heat coming off that land. It’s melting the ice in my drink.

    Great shot, Jeff. Thanks for thinking of us!

    • Hey Mark,

      I hope it melts the ice off your driveway buddy! Talk about getting socked. Reminds me of the blizzard of ’65 (ask Joe, he’ll remember).


  2. The snow stayed to the east of me this time. Talking about northern states, I’ll be visiting North Dakota just after the first of the year so I’ll be putting my winter photography skills to the test. I’ll be near a national park where bison, wild horses and prairie dogs are seen so I hope to post something good.

    Thank you for the lovely and WARM photo, Jeff! I might not have a lot of snow here but it’s cold! 🙂

  3. I share your enthusiasm for mild winters down here that feel more like nice fall or spring days most of the time. OTOH, those Yankees rarely deal with a single summer day in triple digit temps, much less a couple of month’s worth.
