Jenn asks about snow in our world

Oh, yes, I cannot lie to my friend Jenn who is hosting Our World Tuesday this week. We do have snow here at home, but it is fast disappearing and not expected to return this week. Of course, this is Alberta, so the forecast can change at any moment.

We do have some photos of snow in Italy, however!

Yes, these are the Italian Alps, as seen from the bus carrying the group I called "the healthy hikers" from Florence to Pisa. After a fast-paced trip around most of Florence, my husband was still more than ready to tackle climbing the Leaning Tower when he reached Pisa.

After wandering at a more leisurely pace around Florence by myself, I wasn't even thinking of climbing anything, and was happy to rest on my bus ride to Pisa. When I got there, I happened to see my husband, and he happened to see the golden Italian shown below. So a good day was had by all!

Beautiful photos of the snow covered mountains. It looks great but I am sure its cold and I'm glad I live in the tropics!

No snow here … but lots of rain of course. That dog is a bit of a Lindy lookalike. I can see why it caught your intrepid photographer’s eye. :)

Your husband must have tremendous energy!

I can see snow on the mountains close by. There is even some snow left outside my front door. Everywhere else it's gone!

@EG Camera Girl — my husband does have tremendous energy. He still referees high school football and basketball, as well as an occasional college basketball game, every year. He's been refereeing basketball for 45 years and says he's aiming to do it for 50.

That right there is the way I like snow -- beautiful, off in the distance! (I do miss seeing mountains here in the flatlands...of course the ones I see when we're in Oregon aren't quite that magnificent, but close enough).

Don't you love it?!
Thanks for sharing your trip.
Our snow is rock hard, and melting!!!
Cheers from Cottage Country!

You've got the perfect lighting! I see some iridescence on the mountains.

Fortunately, we hardly gets snow in the city, and that would be the first in LA.

Gattina said...

Yes the alps are beautiful, but from far concerning myself ! I am too lazy to climb in the mountains !

Daryl said...
