Ginger's Blue Bottle Tree in the snow
Snow on the Blue Bottle Tree

It’s been snowing so Ginger sent me out to take pictures of the Bottle Trees.

We’ve had 6-7 inches of powdery snow in the last day.

Yesterday afternoon it took me over an hour to drive home from a business meeting. Not because the weather was particularly bad, but because the traffic was crawling along at 5mph. Springfield drivers must all have new cars – I can’t think of any other reason why they’d be tippy toeing along at a snail’s pace when there’s a light dusting of snow. Another reason has been suggested for their caution. They don’t have insurance. That sounds likely too.

Getting out to take these pictures also provided a great opportunity to check out my winter hiking clothes.
