A Story Of Falling Snow
It was already lightly snowing when I set out in my truck. The roads didn't have much snow on them, but there was enough that I figured this might be a good chance to find out how well the four wheel drive worked on my new truck. I really thought it wouldn't snow much longer.
But about a third of the way to my destination the snow began to fall much more heavily! The roads soon became covered in wet, slippery snow. But the truck performed even better than expected, which is much better than some of the cars around me did. The other cars made this a bit scary for me, but I wasn't about to turn back now. I wanted pictures of falling snow! And so I soon made it to my destination.
I began taking pictures soon after getting out of the truck at the nature park. But then I remembered my camera's handy dandy movie record button, so I pushed it with the intention of getting a nice little video of the falling snow. And that is what you see above, another episode of Rat TV!
It was at this quick point that I began to be concerned for my camera. I noticed that the snow was sticking to it a little too much. I had been out here in the falling snow before, so I hesitantly decided it would be fine. So I made my way for the walking trail.
So in the end I had to turn back around, get in my truck, and go right back home. It all turned out to be a short trip, but a good one. I got some of the pictures I was hoping for, even though I didn't get the chance to meet any animals out there. But I'll be back. And then I know I'll see something I've never seen before.
