Full Snow Moon Followed by a Snowy Day

Various Native American tribes had various names for the different moons of the year, tied to natural phenomena that reliably occurred alongside them. February is a snowy month in the northern and eastern US; hence the full “snow” moon.

The moon rise last night happened at 6:06 pm, but it didn’t rise above the hill that blocked its view until 6:50 pm.  The moon had been full 7 hours previously, so the moon that rose wasn’t completely full.

The Almost-Full Snow Moon

Four minutes later the moon had risen a little higher in the sky.

It was a bit chilly last evening, waiting for the moon to rise over the hill so I could see it! I had enough of the cold, so I didn’t wait for the moon to rise above the tree!

The snow moon was followed by a snowy day.

Snowy day

Currently there is a winter weather advisory in effect until 6:00 am tomorrow morning.  Mixed precipitation is expected. Total snow and sleet accumulations of 1 to 3 inches and ice accumulations of up to one tenth of an inch are expected. Snow fell during the late morning and is expected to continue through mid afternoon.  The snow is expected to change to sleet by late afternoon, then over to lighter freezing rain this evening.

    I’m glad you got to see the supermen. We’ve been having thunderstorms for the past 30 hours and have seen nothing but rain. But I guess I shouldn’t complain — at least it’s been too warm to have snow, sleet or ice!

    Hello, love your moon images, the lighting is a pretty color. We had about 4 inches yesterday and it turned to freezing rain, what a mess. I am hoping it warms up today and melts some. Enjoy your day, have a great weekend ahead. PS, WordPress is not letting me comment using my google login I am using an old wordpress login I have.

    I am with the others in loving your moon shots, and I also love the snow shot, too.
