Winter Storm



Welcome to Winter Week here at OPOD. We will be looking at pictures of work and recreation in the winter months. The picture above was taken on a ranch in Wyoming in 1923.

We have had a very mild winter in West Texas. In fact, it was 80 degrees on Christmas Day. I looked at our fruit trees and was fearful that they might actually bloom on Christmas day. Then last night winter finally hit. A huge cold front and thunderstorm came through, and it is very cold this morning, and forcasts for ice, sleet, and snow later today.

  1. It is very mild here in MI too. On Christmas day we went for a family hike at a local park and it was 50 degrees. No white Christmas this year!

  2. If I'm not mistaken this is a Charles Belden photograph taken on the Pitchfork Ranch near Meeteetse WY.

  4. We got the front last night just after sunset. There was some rain, good strong winds, and a sharp, 20 degree drop. Yesterday when I got up, it was 72. This morning, it's 41. Welcome to winter, indeed!
