The drifting during yesterday’s winter storm really stacked up on my back patio. Here’s the entire day in 30 seconds. Pretty cool that you can download time-lapses from your Nest/Dropcam recordings.

Photo Challenge: Silence

When I see an animal track in the snow I often think back about 20 years to rabbit hunts with my Dad. When you’re in the middle of the woods during winter, you don’t hear a thing. Or at least that’s how it is in Northern Michigan. Sound doesn’t travel because the trees are covered in snow. It’s the purest silence I’ve ever experienced. Maybe the most peaceful bit of nature too.

Wow do we have the snow! No end in sight until after midnight. Probably 8-10 inches so far. Accumulations up to 15 inches in some areas for this storm. I don’t see SVSU being open tomorrow.
