This is a before shot of our Western vista on a normal day, well, this was not really normal...I was getting a shot of the rare and amazing icicles...but, point being, you can SEE the mountains thirty miles away!
This is a "white-out" shot facing East from our house.
and...here is that same view without a ton of dust and white sand filling the sky
I know, it isn't like being stuck in a snow storm (feelin' for ya my Midwestern friends), without heat or electricity or running water...already did that this winter...more about that here. But it does jangle the nerves and it is damn gloomy. Time to put on some Manhattan clam chowder, find my recipe here, and close all the blinds, grab a cozy blanket and watch the Oscars because we are officially "fogged" in!
