In the space of less than 40 minutes the scene out my window changed from this
At 5:00 pm this afternoon we had a couple inches of snow on the ground.
At 7:46 pm more snow had fallen, as evidenced by the photograph displayed below (compare the amount of snow on top of the bird feeders).
It is amazing what can be seen in the dark, with snow on the ground. I kept the shutter open for 15 seconds to take the photograph displayed above.
There is a lake effect snow warning in effect now until noon tomorrow. An additional 4 to 8 inches of snow accumulation is anticipated. Winter has arrived!
