The weather gods gave us another adventure just before Easter weekend with snow and freezing rain.
This is a CN freight northbound on the CPR track near my house (Old Still River Road) in Thursday’s snowstorm:
Warming up the car Easter Friday Morning after the snow/ice storm:
Outflow from a culvert caused interesting patterns:
The heavy ice coating on the snow was very reflective …
but led to some very nice shadow patterns:
… including spots were the snowplow threw some fragments up onto the ice surface ….
It turned cold, which froze frost flowers on the surface of a dripping vertical rock.
On Saturday morning there was a light frost on the vegetation, giving some delicate images …
And, later in the day, the ponds reopened where the first Great Blue Heron of the season was catching minnows in a distant slough.
Although it is snowing again today, we are expecting the Buffleheads to come through any day now.
