Melting Snow Timelapse

Melting Snow Timelapse

On a whim I did this time lapse out our front window yesterday. I didn’t plan it out very well and I shot it through the half of the window with a screen, but it turned out ok, I think. Look for the tree branches springing upwards as they lose snow, car tire tracks evaporating, and the shadows and clouds moving as time progresses. The frames are separated by about 1 minute for the most part, but I was adjusting the interval in the beginning so not all frames are separated by the same amount of time. For the best effect, make sure the “HD” option is turned on (it should be blue and is toggled on/off by clicking on the letters) and the video is viewed in full screen. It’s 1m20s long.

Dangerous Icicles

Dangerous Icicles

The recent snow is very moist and sticky, and since it’s still fall, many trees still had their leaves. This caused lots of broken branches, including some that fell on our roof. We think none did any damage, but this one hanging over our front door presented another danger this morning – it hosted icicles directly over our front steps. You can see that our steps are iced over as well. Since I took the photo I have knocked down the icicles and scraped and salted the ice on the steps.
