Weekly Photo Challenge: Snow Sky and the Day After

NightBeforeBlizzard-25

Mid afternoon, the day before the biggest snow in 20 years — 29 inches fell that night in the valley, but more in other places not far away including Boston which got more than 30 inches — the sky had that peculiar luminosity that we call “a snow sky” in New England. Probably everywhere. There was already some snow cover from earlier snows. That’s what it’s like here. From first snow, as early as October until whenever spring decides to come … anytime from March through late April … the ground is white.

    • Me too. That strange sky … and the smell of snow in the air. You can smell it. Different than rain, but we all recognize it. And of course, how could you miss it with the hysterical weather people on TV acting like getting a big snow storm is such an amazing unheard of event. It’s New England. It snows here in the winter. Sometimes, a LOT. Sometimes not so much, but mostly? A lot. This was even more than usual (for one storm, anyhow) but only by a couple of inches and total snowfall for the season was, well, a lot but normal. I was glad to get the light. Funny, because I had the photograph since last february and never did anything with it. It got missed.
