Skywatch Friday - Snowscape


The New Blue Rose on Riverside Drive.  (Click to enlarge)
I took this photo of a beautiful unblemished field of snow under a deep blue sky in Wagoner County last Friday Feb 11 when we drove over to see Wren.  The low temperature the night before was -12° F (-24.4° C).   

Today Susan, her daughter Jennifer and I ate lunch at the new Blue Rose which is built  out over the Arkansas River at 18th and Riverside.  I can personally recommend the Classic One-third pound grilled Hamburger and cheese fries.  Most yummy.

It is a nice place and we sat out on the terrace in the sun where it was quite warm.  The high this afternoon was 81° F (27.2° C).  That is a difference of 93° F (51.6° C) in one week.  Oklahoma weather is never boring.

Love both photos. Next time I'm in town, I have a list of places to eat and I have just added Blue Rose Cafe. Thanks for the suggestion.

Bare trees are picturesque too! Great scenery, although a bit chilly :-)

Beautiful photo of the tree in the field of snow.

I went running last night on the river trail. i usually start in the parking lot where the Blue Rose is. i had to go to the next lot north. I can't wait to eat on the deck there.

I'm right up the road in Kansas. It was -16 a week ago, today it was 78 --both temps were record setters. Lovely photo of the lone tree on the unblemished snow --the snow doesn't stay that way very long.
