This is what 32 inches of snow looks like

It’s a bit cool here in the Algarve, with overcast skies and occasional rain. In other words, not much different than a typical winter in my old home back on the Oregon coast. I hear about snowfall from friends who live in colder climates, but it’s kind of hard for me to imagine.

This time lapse video makes it pretty clear, though:

On the one hand, that looks like loads of fun to play in. On the other hand, I’d sure hate to shovel that off my roof or out of my driveway.

(Note: if the video just shows a spinning gear in your browser, go straight to the Vimeo page to watch it. Vimeo isn’t playing nice with me today.)

    I got cold just looking at it. it’s 6 here, with windchill, in F degrees. Too cold to snow, but not to have skin on hands split painfully
    Makes me want to make hot chocolate and watch this video repeatedly.

    This is too much to comment on.

    Oh my. And I thought our weather was extreme. This winter we’ve gotten about two feet of snow so far, and the temperature has been down to -20°C (below 0°F). That’s extreme for Stockholm at this time of year, though… Do you know where this was taken?

    Now I desperately need to see some sunny hot Caribbean pictures 😀

    I really how you can see the branches of the tree start drooping because of the weight of the snow.
