After the snowstorm

The storm predicted by the red sunrise in my last post has passed, leaving the world cleansed and transformed.

And so the shoveling begins.  We have about 3-4 inches of very dense snow here near Western Shore on the shore of Mahone Bay.  A friend near New Germany, inland, reports at least a foot and a half of “thick heavy snow”.  Meanwhile, someone in Kingsburg, which juts out into the Atlantic Ocean, has no snow at all!  This pattern is typical: rain near the coast, snow inland.

Here’s how a tidal inlet on Mahone Bay looked this morning:

  1. Nice work Heather, we seem to not only share the same storms but the same camera manufacturer. I recently purchased a Nikon COOLPIX L110 consumer camera but have been very happy with my Fuji’s since 2003.

    1. Actually, this one is on loan to me, and I’ll be writing more about it soon. I’m enjoying its special features, particularly the 18x optical zoom and the in-camera panorama creation.
