Snow Albedo

Yum
My friend Susanna Sharp captured a photo of the phenomenon called Snow Albedo.  This occurs when the sun reflects off pure snow straight back up into the sky.  This is over Pioneer Elementary, for those of you who are in town.

  1. Terri that is really cool! Thank you for showing us. The picture is beautiful. I'll show my hubby. He will love it with his scientific nature.

    Thank you for all of your kind visits lately!
    I always appreciate them.

    Good luck to you with the new healthy program. I'm right there with you. No matter how much we need to lose it is work. It just feels right to be eating healthy for life.

    Happy week sweet friend!
    Warmly, ~Melissa :)

    PS Are you getting a new design from Jenn?

    Our drive is cleared, but it was an exhausting endeavor! Hope the snow we're supposed to get Sun and Mon is just a dusting!
