Dancing Snow

Posted by Kirk

We got our first big snow of the season a week back and a new dusting today. I took some photos on the drive in to work. This photo is from County Road 96 in Washington County. I love this drive as I go through these great stands of Burr Oak. I actually don't see this too much anymore as I now take a shortcut to work. The day of the snow I stuck to the bigger roads. I actually went to a coffee shop for the first couple of hours in the day to work on grant writing and wait for the roads to get more cleared.

I love how the snow dances across the road when the wind blows. I tried to find some good video of this online but came up short I. If you live in a snowy area you already know what I am talking about. If not, check out this video. It is just so-so quality wise but you can start to get an idea for how the snow drifts across the roads.

Maybe I'll shoot my own drifting snow video this winter.
