Winter!









Winter finally paid its first visit to our area on Jan. 28 and 29. We had drizzling rain all day on the 28th with big snowflakes falling late in the day. By early morning we had about two inches of slushy, wet snow on the ground, cutting out internet and phone service for a few hours. While it makes a muddy mess of everything around here, the moisture was most welcome - during my recent travels to Jalalabad and Asadabad the rivers were low and the non - irrigated fields looked parched. The top two pictures were actually taken later in the day after the sun came out. The fields were a beautiful emrald green and the clouds hanging in the mountains made for breath-taking scenery.
