Skywatch Friday - Record Snowfall Edition

So close to spring, and yet so far.

Here was the sunrise on March 13 in upstate New York.
And then, on March 14, this came along.

They weren't kidding.  Almost three feet later, no one was going anywhere.
And the beautiful sunny sky of the day before was replaced with this.

And then, last night, Nature tried to apologize with a gorgeous sunset.

Because today is St. Patrick's Day, I thought I would end this post with a cute St. Patrick's Day poem by a fellow blogger.

May your St. Patrick's Day be green, and not white (unless you like snow, that is.)

Join others participating at #SkywatchFriday and see skies from all over the world.


  1. Lovely skies - and what a lot snow.

  2. The 1st and last images are glorious!

  3. Your weather is always so extreme Alana - it must be amazing to live in a place where it changes so remarkably overnight.

  4. The weather's even wackier than the temporary resident at 1600 Pennsylvania!

  5. We got snow too in MA ~ not as much as predicted ~ gratefully ~

    Lovely wintry photos ~ thanks,

    Wishing you a Happy Day ~ ^_^

  6. Wow, your weather is all over the map!! I do like the pretty sky shots, but I don't think I would want all the snow! Happy St. Patrick's Day.

  7. Oh, it's green around here. Very green...

  8. I have to admit that I love the look of freshly fallen snow right after a storm, it's beautiful. It's when it gets moved around and dirty that it's just a pain and no longer pretty.

  9. Ich hatte von dem Wintereinbruch in den Nachrichten gehört. Und nun sehe ich bei Dir die Fotos dazu. Man kann es gar nicht glauben. Mein Garten ist bunt. Die Krokusse, Lenzrosen und Narzissen blühen.
    Ein schönes Wochenende und Grüße aus Germany,

  10. I am glad you had no power failures, and could stay safe and warm inside.

  11. beautiful pastels in that sky.

  12. We have those extra snow as well down here at NYC ...well, winter seems to linger a bit longer..
