Pictures from the snow yesterday. They are also in the "It's Snowing" thread.

The backyard


Good thing our creek only has a couple inches of water in the water


I think this is my first "portrait" here


This is why I'm glad there isn't much water


I like photos like these


Buds on a branch on the ground


Creek behind house, snow drifted so it looks bare to deep in spots


Outside my house


Tire track in the driveway


Sun!


Street level shot


The house

HI Nameless, nice to see you! Pretty pics. It looks almost like there's a glaze of ice on top of the snow in some of the pics.

According to TWC, Tulsa got about 2 inches of snow. Does that sound right? It was kind of funny cause they were really making a big deal of it and were showing pics of someone shoveling snow.

I was trying to figure this out~they said that northeastern OK had gotten snow, but when they talked about the Midwest snowstorm, they said that the Tx. panhandle had gotten snow, too. So did the entire state of OK have snow and it went as far south as Tx???

It was north of I-40 pretty much. I got a couple inches and live 10 miles north of 40. Anywhere north of me and Tulsa got "pounded" as in 5-10 inches. It just missed us mostly. So yes, that does sound right.

Great pics, Nameless. You had to act fast to get those before it melted!

We got just a little snow, maybe 1/2 inch. Just enough to be pretty for a while.

I'm working on the pictures, Synopsis!

Yep it's about as good as you can get these days. Plenty of trees and even a creek behind my street.

We are almost finished with the big town of Atwood!

Atwood has a post office. Not every little town has one anymore.



Old empty building in Atwood



Atwood has one store.




Looking east on the road to Ada.



Looks like you can get DSL now in Atwood.



I've been watching this place. It was a terrible looking property but someone has built that log cabin type place, put in a pond and parking lot, and has been making arrangements of rocks.



Heading south on the road to Atwood. Here you can see the road damage caused by all the truck traffic, and a horrible patching job.



A nice neat and clean place.



We spotted some really nice big pecan trees.



Five mile corner from Gerty.



It is a pretty drive.



All that's left of some of the old homesteads is the chimney.




A three story house.



A big ol' grey hoss.






Nice country place.



Another one.



Finally we get to the big town of Gerty.



Gerty has a nice park.



Telling the story of some good citizens.



What is this thing?



Lots of construction & oil field activity around.



Old truck update.



Now I have to go to Tulsa, so I will finish this tomorrow.

Great pics peggy! Thank You! Oh man, that little main street of Gerty. Many days I wandered up that road to the last house on the right in the second to last picture. That was where my best friend lived, and his Grandmother lived right across the street (Hightower). It looks like the old truck is still doing well!

Our home was one block behind the old store where that truck sits, across from the Church and directly across from the park. We owned that entire block (4 acres). The house is no longer there, but I'll post a pic of it from about 10 years ago soon.

Man, I miss those days.
