Winter Wonderland

Did the snowstorm yesterday qualify as a blizzard? It sure looked like one yesterday afternoon as we left the SJC winter band concert.
This morning was bright and sunny but still cold and windy. The high winds and drifting snow resulted in a snow day for the local schools, but not for the recycling crew. However, they were not finding a lot to pick up and were doing their route very quickly. The city streets will remain snow-packed for at least a few days. Notice the drift that wants to form across Vine Street in the photo below.
The wind does interesting things with the snow. Look how it sculpts the snow around these headstones in Weston Cemetery.
It also creates fascinating patterns on the snow drifts that the low angle of the sun accentuates.
I hope you are able to get past all the inconveniences of the winter weather and enjoy the beauty of the winter wonderland that surrounds us.
