Spring Teaser

Mild but windy conditions on Monday preceded a non-photogenic squall line that served as more lens practice.

A rapid temperature drop behind the frontal boundary resulted in an overnight flash freeze situation rendering any remaining water as instantly solid. The following Tuesday morning a snow squall dropped in on brisk northwesterly winds gusting to 24 MPH with a wind chill of 9. In a grotto of trees serving as protection from the wind, I encountered snowflakes coming to rest on droplets and grass blades.
