Photos of the Canaan Valley Region Following the Snowstorm 9
By Laura Reed, Guest Contributor

Editor’s Note: Canaan Realty’s Laura Reed provided the following commentary and photos to DCSki. Laura ventured outside on Thursday, October 27, 2005 following an early-season snow storm that hit the Canaan Valley region earlier this week.

It is a beautiful day here; 27 degrees this morning. The snow is crusty and still hanging around. The kids went back to school here in Tucker County, but many other counties still are without power due to the snow bringing down trees on the power lines.

I was up at Blackwater Falls State Park this morning enjoying a walk in the October snow! I tried to get a good picture of the ski areas with the snow on the slopes.








All photos were taken by Laura Reed.

Those are really nice images. Not so common in our region to get shots of significant white snow with colorful fall foliage.

Hey Laura! I didn't know that you were such a great artist with the camera! I want to do a good copy of the one on the article on the home page. We will be in the valley this weekend.

What camera do you use? You put my photos to shame. All we had was nasty rain and political hot air down here in the Nation's Capital!

Thank you all for the kind words about my photos. I used a Kodak Easy Share digital camera on an automatic setting. I am truly blessed to be able to live and work in such a beautiful place.
