Snowstorm, pt. 2

The temperatures have been hovering around 0°C,  so the snow is only slowly melting. Many trees are down because the snow came so early this fall that the trees were still in leaf, and so more of the heavy wet snow stayed on the tree. The winds did the rest of the destructive work.

The paradox of nature…great beauty and great power to destroy and undo.


Early winter snowstorm

It started gently, with snowflakes coming down last night. But the forecasted winter storm possibility became all too real overnight and now there are a couple of inches of snow on the ground and more falling. The trees still have leaves, so there is more snow accumulation and therefore more branches and trees breaking in the wind.
