Several alert readers of my East Street Weather Blog have pointed out that this morning’s photo reminded them of a nicely salted pretzel. Here’s another version of the photo with some of the more tell-tale details cropped out. Can you figure out what it is?
I’ve really been enjoying the beautiful snow we’ve got right now (and not only for skiing!) The smoothness and openness of the world is punctuated here and there by the remains of last summer’s growth.
The red oak in our front yard still has plenty of leaves to contribute to the winter still life. They leathery copper color contrasts brilliantly with the new fallen snow.
Drifted snow in the deep woods.

This is a repost from my East Street Weather Blog, so sorry for the double exposure to those of you who subscribe to both. I came across this while nordic skiing nearby. There were several impressions in the snow beneath a row of paper birch trees. The chickadees had been feeding on the seed.
