Sudden Snow on Cacapon Mountain

Although it's been a mild winter and spring is busting out all over, we did get some brisk snow flurries on Monday.

And now, back to your irregularly scheduled early spring.

Update: The moon is full tonight. March 2012 is a good month for watching the sky.

Last (but the opposite of least), Carmi of Written, Inc. has a Past Its Prime theme this week. Here's an old wooden swing set, rotting in the woods.

The swing set is spooky.

The dog is hung over.

The trees look like they just went through a small Tunguska Event.

And the snowfall needs a soundtrack. I think a driving, rhythmic drum solo with cowbell might do the trick. I'm thinking specifically of Tusk...

Fantastic - love all the early spring pics, and the dog... the swing in the woods is a beautiful composition - takes the Past its Prime prize, in my opinion.

Have been digging Jupiter & Venus (occasionally in conjunction w/ Luna) since last mo.

Is the swing or the swingers that have past their prime?
Great dog too.

Thanks, people!

Mikey, if the dog is hungover, how come Dog O'Clock is so early in the morning?

P.S. That swing set might make a nifty night photo with the flash...and what if there were orbs, too?

We had heavy snow on Sunday night/Monday, but by Tuesday, it was 69 degrees. Craziness.

Rotting ways!

Early spring? Try early summer, was the mid-60s yesterday, that's a crime against humanity.

Awesome youtuber, R.G.

I'm going to pass it along to the folks at Carmi's.

Great photos, as always.
Love the little blue flowers!

Here I was outside, cutting up some more of that big branch that fell, when I was attacked by a swarm of mosquitoes.

In West Virginia, on March 08???

Beautiful pictures. The doggie is playing with you there. Doggie humor.

Love the little blue flowers!

Don't start me on the "Scanner Darkly" references.

a Past Its Prime theme

I have a photograph somewhere of a "locomotive abandoned for years to the delirium of a virgin forest", at the top of the Rimutaka Incline. Must scan.
