February Snow Moon

February, 2018 did not have a full moon.  Tomorrow night, February 2019 will have a full Snow moon.  Since rain ( lots of it, we are under a flood watch) is moving in tonight, I figured this super Snow moon would be one that I missed.

Once again the universe sent me an unexpected gift. That happens often and I always express my gratitude.  This evening around 5:30 as I walked across the parking lot at work I saw dark clouds looming on the horizon.  My first thought, wow, the rain is moving in fast. As I walked toward my car, a beautiful glowing orb up in the trees caught my eye.  I could not believe my eyes, surrounded by clouds , there was the almost full Snow moon.

I know the phone camera never captures the moon's image that well, but I was so happy to see this moon.  I pulled out my phone and snapped away.  It was so beautiful.  If you have clear skies tonight and tomorrow night, step outside and treat yourself to one more beautiful sight. 

There will be many incredible photos of this Snow moon, Rick shot one tonight with his trusty camera.  But I love my humble photo and I am grateful that I got a chance to see the Snow moon in  her beauty before the clouds covered her face.

  1. A good photo of the bright moon. I have never been able to take a great photo of the moon. It would be nice if I could get a decent one.
    I hope the flood doesn't wash away some roads.
    10 inches is a lot of rain.
    Stay safe. Hugs, Julia
