Snow Geese

Snow Geese

Every day the snow pack builds up a little thicker. It’s that time of year. Interestingly, even on a clear cold night we still get some snow. Dew snow. The moisture dropping out of the air even without any visible clouds.

Outdoors: 14°F/1°F Sunny, 3″ Snow
Tiny Cottage: 64°F/60°F

Daily Spark: I looked in the box, there was no cat.

    I’ve noticed the same thing a little ways north of you (in Quebec). After a few warmer days when there is more moisture in the air, and then a very cold clear night, it seems like huge light ice crystals just float about in the air. I’ve seen the Northern Lights once since I moved up here, but since I am not that far north they just looked like shifting spotlights shining straight up in the air. One morning when I was up really early to hunt, I even woke my wife because I thought I saw them again and it is rare enough I thought she’d think it was worth it. Unfortunately it turned out it was a neighbour’s barn light far in the distance (to the north, in my defence) that reflected up into a column through the ice crystals/dew snow that was in the air. We only realized what was going on, when a car came by and similar columns were shooting way up into the sky from headlight reflections. I am glad I didn’t excitedly call my neighbour buddy and wake him up too, though I would have just been embarrassed– not in the doghouse for days afterwards like I was after waking my wife ; )
