Very Cool Video
Dang global warming. If there were no snow to insulate it wouldn’t warm up.
ping to SMK
Thanks Islander7. Very cool video.
That is almost artistic. Very cool work.

UP YOURS, AL!!!!
Aee some more global warming in action here:
I especially like the jumping clock. Nice idea and execution.
But I’m from Colorado. There’s a 60 inch snow base (packed, not powder) up in Breckenridge today and I’ll be camping and snowshoeing about in it this weekend. So the video’s a respectable snowstorm by our standards. But not a write-home-about blizzard.
I could almost feel my lower back getting progressively sorer from shoveling.
Soo Cool it Hurts
Well done video, putting that analog clock made the picture clear. Awesome snow event, shows why history can be changed by weather events.
We get them like this every 10 years or so. It takes a hurricane stregnth low pressure system of the coast. Right at the coast, you get moisture right off the water that turns into snow - kind of like lake effect snow in Buffalo, NY. The snow is very light. There is no elevation here to squeeze the moisture out of the air, like where you are. As a result, absent a strong storm system, the snow is usually pretty wet and compact. So this is a pretty unusual event.
I like how someone sets out a clock; then puts the clock on a pedestal; then starts digging out a tunnel for the clock to show.
I think Facebook is down. Just tried to get in and could not get the opening page.
We get the fluffy stuff Nov - Feb. But our big storms in CO are in the spring, when we get wet air up from the Gulf. They are really wet, dense snows. The interesting thing about those storms is that once the snow gets to about 36 inches deep, it just keeps compacting from the weight of additional snowfall. So even if we have 3 ft of snow on Monday and another two feet on Tuesday, the ground depth is still only about three feet. It just gets harder and harder to shovel, though.
