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