It appears that it won't be a green Christmas after all. This pleases me.
It snowed a lot yesterday, not so much a ton of it, but it kept coming lightly for many hours. The contractor even came by sometime in the night to plow our driveway.
Sue and I scurried out to the driveway to snap some photos of the Christmas lights across the way. Sue wanted to try the night option on her new phone, and for some time, I have wanted to show you what we see out front. These are not grandiose mansions, but the effect is quite lovely and much appreciated..
This ↓ is directly across the street. That is Lena's tree on the right. Lena passed away almost two years ago, but the neighbour spent hours stringing her tree. The display on the left is so bright that Sue's phone refused to go into night mode to photograph it. With the controls on my camera, I was able to succeed.
It was still snowing, so we didn't even go all of the way down the driveway. I swung my camera to the right. Too bad about the cars, for there is a house beyond the vehicles that is also quite nice, but I can't see it well from street level. I do see them better in this direction from upstairs, but the one time that I tried to take a photo from upstairs, the window was frozen shut, and I haven't tried again.
We do need to take a little trip around town to see and photograph other houses. I tell myself that I have been waiting for snow, and while that is true, I am also so darn lazy and comfortable inside in the warmth.
