On one of the California boards, a poster recently shared some lovely (braggy!) photos of winter here in California. His shots were definitely beautiful nature scenes. But most of us here don't actually live in the areas he photographed -- concrete is concrete year-round. -- so while I appreciate the beauty presented, it's not like it's a fair representation of everyday life for most of us.

Anyway, those photos left me wondering what the Indy area looks like now, in winter...nature, suburbia, city, whatever...particularly where people live and work.

I follow the weather fairly closely on-line, so I know you've seen the sun, at least on some days and at least for part of the day, and I haven't noticed much in the way of snowfall. But I'm curious to know what ordinary things look like this time of year.

Does anyone have any photos they'd care to upload/share here? I'd really appreciate seeing some since I have yet to visit in winter.

Snow is predicted for this weekend. Any photos I shared with you would be several years old and an 1.5 hours from Indianapolis. Believe or not, the difference in driving an hour south is often significant in terms of weather and definitely in terms of topology/geography.

I sort of figured that was the case. And that's pretty much why I decided to post my question (request) on the Indianapolis forum rather than on the Indiana state-wide one. I appreciate the feedback, though! Stay warm!

I took some today, but I can only upload photos that are online.

I can tell you the sky was cloudy, the trees were bare, and the lawn was green. There was water in the retention pond and cars going through the roundabout. A little snow was flying--little flakes that didn't stick.

Sheerbliss described a pretty typical winter day. I'd say it can be even a little more dreary then described when the sun isn't out. Cloudy, dark and dead vegetation. That can still be pretty in it's own way at times though I think. However, when it does snow, as it it did last night, it is beautiful.

Attaching pictures from Brownsburg, Mooresville, and Danville with the snow. Will try to get a "dreary" picture attached when snow melts.

*Dormant* vegetation. Indianapolis is full of trees.

Yes, dormant is a much better word than dead. Thank you. Spring all of it blooms back from its dormancy.

This will be the biggest snowstorm of the year so far.

If you want winter greenery you usually have to plant pine trees yourself, however.

The lawns stay pretty green here--though native Hoosiers don't think so. Coming from dry, brown Colorado, they look green to me.
