Short and Sweet Snowstorm

Snow on a fence and trees

Yesterday we had a snowstorm that was short and sweet.

Rain turned to snow around 3am Friday morning and continued steadily until about 10am.


The wet, heavy snow decorated the trees and turned the world into a winter wonderland.


Trees and branches were weighed down.

And thick tangles of branches grew even thicker and more softly woven.

Slush made driving slightly slippery, but luckily it was too warm for ice to form on the roads. That would have been more difficult to drive through.

By 11:30am, the sun shone brightly and caused the snow to plop off of tree branches like blobs of oatmeal falling from the sky.


After a few hours it was hard to tell that it had snowed that morning at all. By the evening, it had even melted off of the roofs, trees, cars and anything that was in the warm sun. Temperatures dropped overnight, and any remaining snow or slush froze. Some unfortunate owners spent time scraping ice off of their cars this morning that had been parked in the shade yesterday. All the older snow from the recent blizzard got a fresh white coat.
