Utah Winter Morning
« on: November 12, 2012, 16:58:24 »

     This mornng the temperature is officially -4C (25F), and a little colder where we live.  My greenhouse heater ran almost constantly all night.  We have 36cm (14 inches) of snow on the ground.  Skies are clear, and the temperature will "soar" to about 2C (36F).

Mike,
I am envious that you have such wonderful snow! I cannot help it. I love to see the snow fall.

Every winter I hope that we will get snow, but here in the Rhineland of Germany we only have very seldom snow.

What do you do, when your electric heater stops working?


Kind regards,
Elke

Now that's a heavy early snow!

I'm so not ready - never am.)

     Elke,
     If my greenhouse heater stops and I'm not home I am in big trouble.  I have an emergency backup heater, which runs on small propane bottles, but it is only temporary, I must be there to start it, and it barely keeps the greenhouse above freezing, depending, of course, on the outdoor temperature.  Several years ago, before I had the greenhouse, we had a 5-day power failure, after a big early storm.  I would have to move all the plants in the greenhouse into our home if that were to happen again.

     Gail,
     It is indeed a heavy snowfall for this time of year.  One autumn, however, we had a 15cm fall of snow in late September, before the trees had shed their leaves.  That was a real mess.

Mike thanks for sharing this amazingly beautiful pic with us. Next year can we change weather. I prefer the nice soft snow to the hard hailballs. (Only joking - wont wish that to happen to my worst enemy)

Just a note - You better go and close the van's door before the snow starts melting !

Kind regards
Eddie
A lot of people's biggest regret when they pass away one day, is that they when they had the time, was too reluctant to tell the people that was important to them, how much they apreciated them

Wow how beautiful. I cannot even imagine a whole landscape looking like that as I have never seen snow.

It must be spectacular!!!

One could make a strong walk through the lovely countryside or forest and after that one could sit at the fireplace, drinking warm coffee or hot wine punch and eating tart and watching the birds at the bird table. That is very homely. A winter with rain is terrible, but a winter with snow is wonderful.

Kind regards,
Elke
