Cindy and Dave Ridgeway decided to take a fun drive Thursday morning.
Adventurous sorts, they carefully maneuvered over fresh snow near their Warm Beach home, south of Stanwood.
They snapped pictures along the way, using a digital camera, including a shot near Marine Drive at the Hatt Slough boat launch; one looking east toward Camano Island; and trees laden with snow on Marine Drive.
She said she isn’t a photographer, but just likes to play around.
“We live across the street from Port Susan,” Cindy Ridgeway said. “We are at sea level, but we have about 18 inches of snow.”
She is prepared enough in winter weather to call retired neighbors, get their grocery lists, and head to the market Tuesday afternoon to shop for everyone.
Trond Aronsen took a picture from his living room on Tveit Road in Arlington, showing his everyday panorama.
“We are blessed,” Aronsen said. “It changes dramatically.”
His family has been on Tveit Road for 23 years.
Once, he met the Tveits. They are Norwegian. Trond Aronsen is Norwegian.
“They loved that,” he said.
His snapshot was taken with a digital camera. He wasn’t stuck at home shooting pictures.
“I have very aggressive snow tires, pretty prone to getting around,” Aronsen said. “Norwegians like snow.”
