First SNOW for the season

by Mac McMullen / January 17, 2006 4:05 AM PST

And if it's the ONLY snow, this year should be a hot fire year.

Until yesterday, there was no snow on Sierra Blanca, at
12,000 elev. Now, today, looking across the ''front yard'',
this is the scene.

It's 50 f, calm air, bright sun and blue sky here in the ''flats''.

Snow can be beautiful to look at
by Steven Haninger / January 17, 2006 4:20 AM PST

from a distance. I was stationed in Aviano, Italy for a time while in the USAF and remember standing in shirtsleeves on base looking up at clouds where I knew there were mountains inside of them. We were in the foothills of the Alps. When the clouds blew away, the snowcaps were just magnificent and I could not wait to get my camera. But showing them to family when I got home just never measured up to being there. Today, we don't call anything snow unless it's enough to shovel. Nice pic.

....of Angus, Shorthorn and Herford. All cows that will freshen in the spring, with a few yearlings. About 150 head wintering on a large dormant alfalfa field.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
