Today is April 8, 2010. Ah, spring is definitely in the air, the birds are chirping, the trees are budding, and as usual a wicked snow storm blows in. Just yesterday I was barbequeing in a t-shirt, neighbors where cleaning up their lawns, some even going so far as getting their sprinklers out to get a head start on greening things up. I took a picture today of a of a warm sunny morning. Today's storm hit during the 5 o'clock afternoon rush, with winds gusting up to 90, and blowing snow causing white out conditions. Power was out everywhere, resulting in traffic chaos. I was able to ditch the public transit I was on since it was stuck in traffic due to the power problems, and I walked the rest of the way home. I was literally blown away by the howling winds and the horizontal flying snow, but it made for some great photo ops! Here's the best of the lot.
