Winter Wonderland Continues

Driving to Owen Sound today we watched the snow clinging to branches most of the way, turning the world to a white fantasy..  Parts of the woodland we drove by were just a tangle of white branches.

Mysteriously, the sticky snow only extended 2/3 of the way up the trees, while the canopy branches were bare.  I'm wondering if it's maybe a temperature difference.  Any ideas?

At any rate, it sure made for another pretty drive.

  1. A temperature difference is what I'd assume. Beautiful to see.

  2. Agree -- almost certainly a temperature differential. Probably colder at the treetops which let the snow sift down until it encountered warmer temperatures that caused it to become wet and sticky. A meteorologist should be able to say for sure.

  3. Just beautiful! I wonder too why the snow is only on part of the trees. Makes for great pictures, whatever the reason. :-)

  6. I think you have it figured out now with the help of your readers. I agree though, whatever the reason, the pictures are unique and beautiful. funny to see the rv way out there in the snow in your first picture.

  7. Beautiful area and drive... I LOVE snow --but we never get as much as I would prefer.... However, it has been VERY cold (cold for us) this week. Got down to 13 degrees a couple of nights ago. Rare in November.

    Have no idea about the snow on the trees. CRAZY.

    Hugs,

  9. Temp difference is usually colder down lower is it not, where the sun does not reach. Odd, but lovely.

  10. Yes we do live us in a winter wonderland at times here in these early northern latitudes. I noticed that snow effect on the bottom of trees as well Wednesday and wondered too what would cause that. It was quite prominent along the bush lines.

  11. How peculiar to see snow settling like that. I would guess it probably is a difference in temperature as you say.
