Skywatch Friday - Almost Winter

At this time of year, back in the "old days", upstate New York used to be solidly into winter by now.  But, the last few years have been anything like normal years.

So, last Friday, which was Black Friday in the United States, I saw this amazing sight at about 1:30 pm- sunlight.  We had gotten over 24 inches of snow at our airport between November 19-22.  By November 25, it was already melting. I loved the variety of patterns here.

In contrast, by yesterday the snow was all gone, but the sunrise looked like a pretty typical first day of December sunrise.  And, this morning, I was greeted by a dusting of snow.

Come visit other blogs from all over the world for Skywatch Friday, and enjoy their sky-related pictures.

  3. Nice sky photos. I like the wires in the first photo with that little touch of blue sky. The weather is so unpredictable these day, you never know what you're in for.

  4. The two contrasting pictures are reflective of how fickle the weather can be at this time of the year. We're not facing such extremes of weather around where we live, but, nature has a way of showing us that winter is coming soon.

  7. I miss the snow- from years ago and 10 days ago (I'm in Vermont) but climate change is creating great sunsets and sunrises.
