Clipper on Steroids

Appropriately titled by my good friend over in Indiana, this storm noted for producing insane snowfall totals exceeding 8 inches over in Champaign IL (which is about 50 miles east), only dropped a few flurries at my location. Preliminary figures for the region c/o NWS ILX can be found HERE. The cut off line was so sharp that although NE portions of Macon County saw moderate snowfall, central and SW areas received nothing. It was not until around noon on Saturday and well after the persistent NW to SE band had moved on did we begin to see measurable precipitation wrapping in from the WNW. Picking up a mere .50 inch as storm total accumulation, I stepped out to try for the first snowflake macros of the season.











Suspended by a cobweb, a blob of snow blew in and took out one of the supports thus causing it descend slowly.


and from today, old theme but still...
