Snow Awning

This should give you an idea of how much snow is on my roof. I took this on Tuesday (March 16).

It’s beginning to melt and I’m starting to think we had better knock some of it down. I wouldn’t want any of that falling on my head!

Today, the icicles were starting to develop …

Do you see the bird?

… and we had +7°C! It was such a nice break after literally, months of -30 and -40 … and sometimes, I really just didn’t want want to know. It was better that way.

The snow was soft and beginning to be slushy; snowballs were waiting to be made, snow sculptures were waiting to be found.

Yay! Bring on the melt!

Happy weekend. 🙂

Aerial Cloud View

This fabulous photo …

… was captured by Santiago Borja and published by National Geographic.

It is a gigantic cumulonimbus cloud (the kind that pilots are ever vigilant to avoid, especially during summer) over the Pacific Ocean; the photo was taken from about 37,000 ft.

The photographer captured this shot during one of the lightening flashes emanating from the cloud.

As a pilot, I have taken what I consider to be rather interesting pictures from aloft, but I have nothing even approaching this.
