A Foot Of Snow, More To Come

We received about a foot of snow from a large winter storm that occurred from a collision of an “Alberta Clipper” from Canada (with cold air) and a wet low pressure system coming up from the south. The result: A foot of snow in our yard. Since there was virtually no wind with this storm, the snow dropped straight down and settled on surfaces, piling high in some cases.

Most interesting was the snow pattern on this wind catcher that hangs on one of our big oak trees. The wind catcher usually spins with the slightest breeze, but not today. It stayed still long enough for a few inches of snow to pile up on it.
