Nature’s Beauty after a Snow Storm in Siouxland, Sioux City

2 Feb

Sometimes the silver lining in a storm shows itself afterwards although that might be putting a nice spin on such an event. After a recent blizzard event in Siouxland and the more than 11 inches that fell in Sioux City, a couple days later nature gave the residents a show, although brief. The day started somewhat overcast and cloudy and soon sun began to appear. Many tree tops were still covered with frozen rain (ice) prior to the snow and with the sunshine it created a magical but brief visual.

I had debated going out that day to look for photos and decided I would stick around the house and pursue other necessary chores and then peeked outside and saw the transformation that lasted maybe an hour or two. But even though I wasn’t in the country looking over a field that might have been a bit more grandiose in scale and image, I was happy to see the sunshine returning and giving the day a short, bright appearance that put a smile on my face.
