Let’s start 2008 off on the right foot – and here in Kalamazoo, that would be a foot of snow!
New Year’s eve brought the onset of a heavy, driving, wet snow. It looked great on the tree branches and power lines, but the temps hovered around the freezing point, too warm for snow flake photographs, even in the open and unheated garage.
A steady snow fell through New Year’s Day – but still it was too warm with the air temp just at the freezing point.
Finally, at about 10 p.m. the temps dropped just a few degrees. The wind picked up and a near white out snow started. The temps stayed down for a few hours, and while the snow wasn’t ideal – still too effervescent – but good enough to work out a few shots.
