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.
Yes, the weather gods have certainly blessed us and your pix were incredible – the snow crystals, the culvert, the evergreens and Heron. One more time, we are able to view the breathtaking beauty that is WInter. Thank you very much !!!!
