April Snow Showers Kill Spring Flowers

Uhhh, what the hell is going on?

Today I came home from work to an inch or two of snow. Carrie and I went out to dinner (Yes, Mi Tierra, If you want to know...) and came home to around four inches. Just a week ago, I was scorching my forehead as Carrie and I enjoyed a seventy degree day in our shorts and tee shirts. That will not be happening tomorrow.

I can't remember the last time snow stuck (or fell) around here in April. Amazing.

Here is a shot of my deck tonight...


Yes, I said tonight. To all you non-photoheads, the picture above was exposed for 20 seconds. A 'typical' picture is taken at 1/60th of a second or shorter. Because of this long exposure it soaks up enough light to appear like it is daytime. The other thing it does it make the falling snow disappear.

As a comparison, here is a shot I took a minute after with a flash...


Notice the snowflakes and the dark background. Quite a difference.



Edit- I just came in from shaking the snow off my plum tree that you see hanging low in the pictures. Bad news, I lost a big branch off the top. Sad.
