Serious Snow — Early

Filed under: Landscapes,Monadnock Region — Frank @ 10:00 PM

Back when I first moved to New Hampshire, forty odd years ago (1976 to be exact), we often got our first serious snow before Thanksgiving. The ground was then snow covered until spring. These days, with the warming climate, serious snow in November is a rare event.

This year is shaping up to be one of those rare years. We have had about ten or twelve inches of snow in the past few days. The ground is well covered and it is likely to stay that way until spring. We will see.

This morning, we awoke to the usual gray November skies. At least there was no snow falling.  Mid-morning, I took the camera with me as I headed to town to pick up our Thanksgiving bird. As I headed out, there were faint traces of blue sky starting to appear. By the time I headed home (maybe forty five minutes later), the clouds had broken and the sun was shining nicely. I was able to use my camera to good advantage. Alas, the break in the November gray was transitory. More clouds rolled back in within the hour.

  1. We did have our first snowfall last weekend but the camera was resting as other priorities took over.

    look forward to see what you are shooting. I have been busy noting where the church steeples are and await better conditions to shoot them. i have six or seven but I’m waiting on another fifteen or so.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and Joan!
