Snow fog

Recently we had snow which fell vertically, a gentle floating flutter of flakes. That may not be remarkable to many but it is for us. I watched the relaxing scene for a long time through the window of the darkened house. Here, with the wind we normally have, usually the snow flies horizontally in a frenetic search for ground.


By the next morning, 17 centimeters, or over 6 inches of fresh flakes had accumulated. Branches, limbs, twigs 




and fence posts were piled high with the fluff. However by the time breakfast was over, it was foggy, which is an unusual occurrence here as well, especially with a fresh snowfall.




The fog was thick, lowering visibility in the neighbourhood, even in the back yard.




A nearby garage was almost imperceptible. 




Within an hour, the fog dissipated and before long the sun came out. 




The fluffy flakes were wet snow now and the wind blew clumps off the trees.  But this winter weather was a nice change from the gale force winds and the bitter cold we’ve endured.

You have a lot of snow and the fog is also beautiful!
This year, heavy snow hit Japan and paralyzed traffics in many big cities. Here in my place, we have not had snow, just powdery snow were blowing today. I want to have at least one and to take photos!!!
Stay warm and Have a good weekend,Marie.

It's fairly common for us to have fog, especially at certain times of the year, and fortunately for us most of our snow stays in the higher elevations. Lovely pictures of your unusual weather, Marie. Thanks for sharing. :-)

I don't know about the fog, but I wouldn't mind that kind of snow for a change.

I tried to comment on your earlier post. Either Blogger or my internet had a problem, so I don't know if it posted or not.

Softly falling fluffy snow is so peaceful!

Your pics are beautiful.

Actually, all this weather is discomforting me. And it's still months to spring. We've had that fog several times this winter. Keep warm.

My favourite kind of weather!

That fog was kind of sinister. Looked like something from a scary movie. Love the fence/snow.

Jenn said...

We had a very foggy morning yesterday, amazing how quick it just disappears! I love it when the show piled up on things like those fence posts.

Barb said...

What pretty scenes both during and after the storm.

A winter wonderland. I know what you mean about the wind, but we don't get the snowfall like you do.

Catarina said...

You have lots of rain, Jan and you’ve adapted well to it.

The previous comment didn’t post, AC. There’ve been problems with Blogger lately.

Marie Smith said...

It sure is, Debra, and so rare.

Marie Smith said...

Oh Linda. It can be so beautiful and so terrible at the same time! I wish you only the beautiful part.

Marie Smith said...

The weather has been strange this year, Joanne. We have to expect the unusual now!

Marie Smith said...

Thank you, PDP.

Marie Smith said...

If I enjoyed winter, this weather was perfect, William.

The fog was unusual and curious to me, Barbara.

The gentle snowfall makes for pretty scenes, Jenn.

So true, Barb.

You are fortunate to live in a milder climate, Bill.

It's nice when you get those gentle windless snowfalls that sticks to everything.

I actually love the mysterious look of fog. Living in Hawaii now, I miss the beauty of snow, but not the cold.

Marie Smith said...

Those gentle snowfalls are gorgeous!

Thank you, Debbie!

I would not miss the cold, Kay.
