Night and Day Snow Orbs

We were on blizzard alert yesterday in Bisbee, Arizona. Schools took the day off and county offices closed early before we went to white out conditions in the afternoon. The early evening brought a bit of clear sky except for an occasional orb floating through.

I especially like the tiny blue orb perched above the wire fence we put up to keep the dog out of cat territory.

Later in the evening the snow returned, much to the interest of the orbs who mingled with the snowflakes. Takes a practiced eye to distinguish orbs from snow. The orbs are more translucent and in my neighborhood are often shaped like tear drops.

We have had more snow this year than in my previous 18 winters in Bisbee.

Some blues and pinks to brighten the night.

After the drama of the blizzard of the night, a few Sun orbs to enjoy.
