First Snow Storm of 2018

Today we’re having our first snow storm of 2018 and pretty much the first real deal of the season in Brooklyn.

Snow storm with D700.It’s hard to resist taking some pictures. The first shot above I’ve taken with my Nikon D700 with a remote flash to light up the flakes.

Snow storm with Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic.Second set of two pictures Arosha took with his Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic camera which was his gift form us for New Year.

Snow storm with iPhone X.And the last one is simply taken with iPhone X. And they all feel completely different from each other.

Blizzard 2016

On the swings.We finally have our first storm of this winter. We had our first snow a week ago, but it was less than a centimeter deep. Useless. Today though there is a real-deal blizzard outside.

Snowman.We took the kids out in the morning and it was already several feet deep in some places. And it was just morning. It keeps snowing at the full strength now and probably the end result will be quite impressive.

Snowbaby.The snow was non-sticky type, so we couldn’t build a snowman or anything like that. But kids played with a couple of buckets, filling them with snow and building mini snow castles.

Iced-over.Kids had a ton of fun. Arosha already knows well enough what snow is, but Anюta seemed to be fairly impressed as last year she was still too little to remember anything.

Car.The obvious downside to all this is the fact that I might have a hard time undigging the car when the time comes. On the other hand if the previous winters are any indication I might just drive right out.

Spring?

Fairy tale in Brooklyn.By Russian standards spring starts on March 1st. By American standard our spring has started on March 20th. As in yesterday. However yesterday we had yet another snowstorm. The snow was coming down all day long and well into the night.

Cold Manhattan Beach.What made yesterday different was how the tree branches got blanketed in snow. In all the snowstorms that we had this year it hasn’t happened. The streets were beautiful. I took a picture out of our window in the evening and was planning to go out again in the morning. Alas the wind blew the snow off and the fairy tale was gone.
