12 inches of snow, 4 days without power, wearing most of your warm clothes...in the house, living off a camp stove with no hot water for showers and not being able to get out for 3 days certainly makes you appreciate simple things in life....Like....er....electricity...!!!

It's always a feeling of fun living by oil lamp for one night but 4 is a drag.

I did get time for some photos, the 'lump' in front of this one is my pickup!

I'l put some up on photobucket later.

Beautiful shot, but I'm sure gladit fell where it did! That's more snow than I've seen in my lifetime, total. I'm glad to see you came out of it fine. I wouldn't have fared so well.

Yikes, I had forgotten what snow looks like, after living in central London (UK) and now Spain.

However much I dislike cold weather, I have to admit it looks great on your photo!

Cold weather is fine if you choose to visit a ski area, this was a bit of an unwelcome surprise, we still had a bit of fun in it though.

so tell me, how do you transition your lens and camera into the cold..i'd be too concerned with fogging a lens, or worse yet, getting moisture in it and then fungus

I've just never had that problem and I've taken lots of shots in snow. I used to live at nearly 8,000 feet in Utah as well. Perhaps this time it's because the house was pretty cool inside, with out the power we only had a small gas fire heating it all.


Here's the view from the deck they morning after the storm.
