Whenever snow falls in April, it always is a bit of a surprise. We tend to think of April as a spring month. The temperatures start warming up. And then boom. Snow. Snow? Really?
When there isn’t a global pandemic keeping everyone at home, I can understand how most people don’t want to see the snow. We want warmer temps.
But for those working from home during the lockdown, this April snow is a sort of test for you. Can you enjoy something beautiful from your window that will last only until dinnertime? Or will you complain about it?
During this covid-19 lockdown, our windows become more of a form of entertainment. You look outside to see what’s happening, but you don’t really go outside. So if there’s snow, then yeah! Nice view. Pretty. You don’t have to walk or drive in it. Even if you do go outside, the sidewalks are instantly clear, because the snow never accumulated on their warm surface. By dinnertime, all the snow everywhere melts away.
Enjoy the view.
I didn’t even bother going outside, I just took some photos from my back door of our magnolia tree.
And then I took some photos of the same magnolia tree from my daughter’s bedroom window.
Shot using the “Slow Shutter” iOS app. The “Light Trail” option captures the motion of the snow moving down. Over 8 seconds, every snowflake is captured about 24 times repeated, in a line, as it falls down from the sky.
