Skywatch Friday - Corner of Main and Brady

Tulsa got the first snowfall of the season last night.  Those shoveling out of the terrible snow storms in New England might say that this is nothing, but it was enough for school and a number of events to be canceled.   The thing is that we don't get enough snow here to be practiced at dealing with it.  Last year we had a real 6 inch snow at Christmas and we thought it was a sure enough blizzard.  When snow is forecast things get canceled "just in case".  Oh well, it is kind of pretty and it will be gone in a day or two.

I met my friend Yogi! for lunch today and we talked about the sort of things that bloggers talk about; blogs mostly.  When I started home the sky was blue and the snow begged to have its picture taken.  I pulled out my trusty iPhone and drove around for 30 minutes taking photos which you will get to see for a few days until they are used up.  That's the way we bloggers are.  Yogi! got  a simple little film camera for Christmas and he posted 2 weeks worth of photos from his first roll of film.  Nice pictures too.

How nice that you and Alan got together today. The snow storm apparently split over NW OK and missed us entirely!

I love the colours in this, they really pop!

Have a great weekend & happy SWF!

That's a terrific blue sky and looks amazing behind the colour of the buildings.

I enjoyed lunch today!

The Brady district is an underappreciated part of town. As Sarah says, your colors really pop.

I'm sick of the sight of the white stuff this winter.

I love these old buildings. They look even better between that blue sky and white snow!

Downtown buildings like these make me feel very nostalgic. I love your blog and all the picture ideas you have. Great job.
