Lake Effect

So this will be the start of a series of blogs about POD's without a meaning, as in a photo that someone has selected at random and is ever curious to know why I took the photo.  Today's photo was selected by my "little" brother Dan and his choice was day 59/365 from the 2013 edition of my project.  

As February ends and we begin March the Midwest can be very bi-polar with the weather, some winters end early and the snow melts and we get puddles a plenty to jump in.  Otherwise we are stuck waiting for the snow and ice to melt for an eternity, and normally those are the years that we find snow piles hiding in June.  This photo captures how I feel about winter on the Isthmus, snow comes in waves and just like the saying about rain "when it rains, it pours" when it snows, it's a blizzard!  Most times that is, while this winter wasn't as harsh as we've had before it definitely has stuck around passed its due this year.  Last year by this point we had already seen 80 degrees and temps maintained a steady 60's-70's through much of Spring, now we have seen snow in April as late as the 19th (as of today)!  Warmer temperatures are forecast for much of the next week, so the snow in hiding best run as it will quickly melt off and vanish for at least another 6 months (I hope).

If you're reading this and would like to submit your POD story request please don't hesitate to email me or comment on this blog.  You can find my full body of work at local paparazzi on flickr.
