More Snow

Well, it continued to snow slowly but steadily throughout the night. So we got treated to more snow, and I just feel compelled to share.

My poor car. It has had to put up with a lot of crap lately.

More peacock action.

A lone peahen contemplating her choices in life... Or maybe I'm projecting.

This is just a glob of snow, but it built up in a way that is openly defiant of gravity. The glob is built up on a fence post, but the fence post is under it on the right. There is nothing holding it up on the left except its own internal structure. I'm sure somebody out there understands how snow/ice structures like this can build up, but to me it is just mysterious. And being ice and snow, also crappy. It is mysterious and crappy.

This one is just further proof that there was quite a bit of snow. Nothing like they get in Buffalo, NY (thank goodness), but quite enough for me.

This is an expanded view of where the peacock parade was yesterday. You'll notice that that the tree in the background appears to be leaning against a power line. In fact, what you can't see is that there is a peacock sitting on the power line right up there just behind the top of the tree. The tree is actually not leaning against the power line. Regardless, we later attempted to shake off the tree and shoo away the peacock. In the process, I was covered in snow. Good times... Good times...

Fortunately the storm seems to be over, and the snow on the ground is already melting. Although it might take a while for it to go away completely. Thankfully we never lost power and were able to stay safe and warm.
