We had some more harsh, winter weather this past week. We got home from our vacation in a winter wonderland just in time for another severe ice storm.
We were iced in for a full two days before it melted. When it melted, it did so quickly and we were able to get out and about for about a day before the snow storm started.
I know snow isn't all that unusual in terms of winter weather, but it really doesn't snow much here in the Pacific Northwest. And if it does snow, it usually melts within a day or two. Not this time. The snow started Tuesday afternoon and lasted for more than 12 hours. Since then the temperatures have not gone above 32 degrees so there has been zero melting.
Thankfully I don't mind being confined to my home for long periods of time. In fact, I had a meeting that did not get canceled this weekend and I was a bit put out that I had to actually go somewhere.
The best thing about all the snow...more opportunities for photographing snowflakes.
And here's a behind the scenes look at one of my snowflake photo shoots.
