January Blizzard

This January blizzard happened at the beginning of 2014, during a visit to Plymouth, Massachusetts. It blanketed the hills and creeks of the city.

Late that night, storm still going full throttle, the amazing sound of the wind made me jump out to the recently built light room that faces the lake… I was struck by one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen.

So happy I snapped a piece of it.

Fortunately, the security light in the back of the house—which is typically off—turned on briefly… time enough to allow me capture the above scene. After a few tries, I decided to put my iPhone against the glass, moving it around the window while filming, mesmerized by the wonderful falling snow.

The leaning of the phone on the window not only allowed me to film constantly on the same plane but also had the purpose of completely blurring the tiny snow flakes stuck on the window’s glass, creating those nice balls of light.

As you can see in the weather report following the link below, we got the heaviest snow from this blizzard. I plowed a good deal of it from our garage that afternoon.

A major snowstorm will reach from across part of the Midwest to the central Appalachians and New England into Friday. A blizzard will evolve from the storm in parts of the Northeast. →

January blizzard, a ballet of snow dancing at the will of the wind.

    Hi Ceez! You certainly captured that moment in time. I loved it! Great music selection. The only good thing to come out of that northeaster is your video clip “January Storm 2014”. You could also have named the video, “The Great Snow Dance of 2014. Snow never looked better. “Glad you were there to shovel the huge snow drifts off my driveway the morning after the storm so you could get to the airport. Thanks!
