Several weather models, the US National Weather Service, and Environment Canada all suggest a significant snowstorm will occur tomorrow. My interpretation is that between 12-20 cm (or about 4 to 8 inches) will fall starting tonight and ending Friday afternoon.
So I spent some time the last two afternoons clearing the deck and scraping the driveway/street interface – making space for more snow.
. . . no, actually not. I pointed my camera up and captured these falling snowflakes illuminated by parking lot lighting.
Back on Thursday.
The calendar reports that spring began 17 days ago.
Winter begs to differ.
Some folks may describe this image as depicting a gloomy day. To me it was good to be able to take this photo, know the palpable difference between today’s temperature, -1, and last Wednesday’s temperature of -10 with a stiff wind blowing, to have made it another year. It was and is a good day.
Winters’ austere beauty has arrived – perhaps a little early by the calendar, at the right time for the season. Even during a -8 afternoon there is something to admire. Here it was the delicate shadings of grey, green, and off white.
Dawn sunlight gives a chunk of snow a pale, rosy glow.
