20161211 Lots more snow

The temperature plummeted over the last few days and the westerly wind brought a lot of lake effect snow to our neck of the woods.  Here are some sights of our experiences.  ( I tried to preserve as much snow texture as possible, even in flat light.  That includes the snow flake falls, which are streaked when I shot a longish exposure and individual flecks when I used a short exposure.  You can see the texture by zooming in on the photos, by clicking on it or expanding it on your hand-held device.)

Apparently S.C. was on a test-flight to check out the facilities.

 

All of the local beasties are relieved to get some snow cover for their nests, burrows etc.  I am not so sure about travellers along Hwy 69.
