April Showers

I suppose if this all is gone before then, it will be good for May flowers if they don't get washed away in the floods when it all melts up north where they got twice as much.

By Saturday afternoon frozen sleet had been coming down driven by a 25 mph sustained wind for almost 24 hours. The city usually doesn't plow until the snow ends, but I think they were afraid it would be too heavy if they left it.  (What they left at the end of my driveway was certainly heavy.)

For a few minutes on Friday when it started, it left a nice coating of ice on everything.

The normally clear glass in the little greenhouse was frosted by it.

Sunday afternoon the wind was still at blizzard levels, but the precipitation had changed to something more like regular snow.  Last year at this time the magnolia was in full bloom.

The driving wind coated most of the back porch with a fine frosting filtered through the screens,

Looks like soccer season is going to be delayed a bit.

His pond was completely covered, and Elwood was buried up to his armillary.

I don't think I'll be biking for a while, both bikes were frozen to the ground.  I got the other one free,  but I had already changed the studded winter tires about a month ago.

All with the Evil Cube, .29mm pinhole 6cm from 6x6cm frame, loaded with Ilford HP5 developed in Rodinal 1:50.
