Sometimes (but not very often), it snows and sticks in Albuquerque. This weekend it actually snowed twice which is a Christmas miracle! While I’ve made no attempt to hide my discontent over cold weather, I am amazed how even just small amounts of snow can make an ugly, dirty world look magical.
For a few days, the weatherman had been warning us about massive amounts of snowfall…I would say we got less than a quarter inch at our house and it melted before 10 on both mornings, but on our Saturday and Sunday runs we were able to run through a sparkly, frosty wonderland. And all reports point to another snowstorm tonight into tomorrow.
We’ve also spent hours taking pictures of it.
I was outside in my robe and flip flops on Friday night experimenting with the camera. Saturday morning we tried to get Giuseppe to pose cutely. He was more interested in snow digging. We repeated the whole thing last night and this morning. These are some of the 100 pictures we took. (Really, we are pretty snow deprived). My favorite are the long exposure pictures like the one above taken at about 10 p.m.
