Heavy, Wet Snow














After days of warm weather - it was 72 degrees here earlier in the week - winter broke bad and dropped six inches of snow on the ground in about five hours yesterday.

The snow began a little after 2 p.m. and tapered off about 7 p.m. The flakes were huge - some as big as saucers. The snow stuck surprising well on a ground that had to have been somewhat warm.

I took these photos this morning, just after sunrise.

  4. Not as much snow fell here on the eastern shore, less than an inch and it was nearly gone by noon. Your snowfall was very photographic, Anita.

  5. I used to like snow days. Now derecho and snowfall are four letter words. I will grumble with your husband! Even though HE seems to have had power.
