Snow in the Lowlands

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 2 March 2019 in Cityscape & Urban.

At the beginning of the Upper Big Creek hike, I mentioned we chose it to avoid snow. Less that three weeks later, the snow came to Olympia and all of western Washington State. In Olympia, we had 18 - 20 inches (46 - 51 centimeters) of snow on the ground after two back-to-back storms. That's not much snow for many places but for Olympia, that's a lot. Some years, we get no snow at all.

There's a wonderful winter. Snow has melted quite a lot in southern Finland and some ski events have had to be canceled because of it. In Lapland, about a thousand miles north, there is a lot of snow.

That is indeed a lot of snow, here we can only dream of a lot of snow today.
A beautiful picture with the trees whose branches almost collapse under the snow.

You took good advantage of the unusual winter to get a very good “snow” pictures. Our state had a record February.

I was following those storms there and watching on the live webcams. I hope it's nice weather up there 5 weeks from now. Wonderful showy shot.

@B. Thomas: It should be just fine. I hope. ;-)

I like how the snow mixes in with the greens. Great light as well.
