I really like the last one of the house JD, with the low clouds in the valley under the sun.
Some foot prints leading in from the bottom of the picture to the house would
have really been cool too.
You'll be getting a good work out this winter by just shoveling out after every storm.

Love the pics!

Did get to see the mountains briefly, too, here in Round Valley. But we were soon under that low cloud layer in your photo...I believe the peaks and ridges were still out in the sun.
