Plopping, icy, white...

The days are clicking off to the end of March after marching past the first day of spring, and yet... I woke this morning to find snow falling. Snow, changing to sleet and then to rain within a few miles of my house. Gray drizzle continued, and then it started snowing again. Big plopping chunks of white came raining down, wet flakes that seemed to be at least an inch across, maybe more.

The first picture? That was my attempt to capture the snow flakes. Those big gray blobs? They aren't spots on the lens; almost all of them are snowflakes! Yup, that (big) gray splotch over the tree branches in the corner is a water spot, but the rest are snowflakes.

Spring is really coming, isn't it?
