Last Camera Date of 2022

Before our three-day blizzard was predicted, I planned on out on one last camera date at sunrise. Luckily for me, my weekday day off was toward the end of the month so I planned it for then.

But then the blizzard came and changed my plans. I didn’t really want to go out in that mess and risk going into the ditch for unnecessary travel. So, when my alarm went off, I stayed in bed for a while and thought about my options.

Eventually, I climbed out of bed and made coffee. While I was waiting, I looked out the window and saw the sun shining and no snow falling. I checked my phone and saw that it was -10 F. I bundled up in so many layers that I felt like Randy from a Christmas Story (I couldn’t put my arms down.)

Looking Out My Backdoor

After about 30 seconds outside, my glasses were so foggy because of the scarf, that I had to take them off in order to see. So, I walked around our backyard, without my glasses, hoping that the photos I took were in focus.

The wind was blowing the snow on my last camera date of 2022.
This is my favorite photo from my backyard. I hope it prints well.

I was outside for maybe half an hour before my eyelids kept sticking to themselves, so I decided it was time to go in and thaw out.

My Adventure at the Park

Later in the afternoon, I decided to go out again. My weather app said we weren’t supposed to get any more snow until 5 pm, so I bundled up again and went to the park around the block from my house.

Unfortunately, it started to snow just as I was backing out of my garage. I was already committed to going out, and I wasn’t terribly worried since I wasn’t going far.

I spent another 45 minutes outside walking through the park photographing the trees and the snow. While I was there, I made a few TikToks and played Pokemon Go.

I made it home safe and sound again around 3, and I waited for my camera to thaw out. I hope you enjoy the photos I took on my last camera date of 2022.
