Valley Snow

OK, we all know when April 1 rolls around. People enjoy pulling pranks on friends, media outlets publish outlandish articles and there’s just a hint of fun in the air. But when when the snowplow woke me up at 4 a.m., I just knew it couldn’t be an April Fool’s joke. Even VDOT wouldn’t stoop that low, spending taxpayer dollars to plow “pretend” snow.

So when I glanced out the window this morning, I got what I expected: A white world. But even I, who wear at least three layers each winter day, had to admit that despite the cold it was a beautiful sunrise. The heavy, wet snow blanketed the trees, billowing fog hung in the valley and puffy white clouds drifting by made for a gorgeous photo op. So with camera in hand, I spent 45 minutes outside attempting to capture this beauty through the lens—and the cold, wet feet were definitely worth it.
