It’s Winter (Photo Post & Giveaway Winner)

A week ago, we had warm temps and a crazy hail storm

Sometimes the side street next to us floods during heavy rains, luckily it clears up once the heavy rain stops.

Then the temperatures dropped and over the weekend, it finally snowed for real.

I brought my phone with me during Sunday’s run and came across this frozen “waterfall”

    1. OMG really? Because that was some big honking hail that we got down “south.” It hit us around 10pm (I only remember because I was starting to fall asleep and then the rain hitting the roof got REALLY LOUD).

    1. Thanks! I have the Canon Powershot SX260. It’s a point-and-shoot, but it has a 20x Zoom Lens which to me makes a world of difference. Although the last two pictures on this post (the frozen “waterfall”) were taken on my phone – Samsung Stratosphere – which is a crappy phone that I don’t recommend at all and I cannot wait to replace it!
