We've had a few dustings since the last real snow.
In fact, just yesterday we had a fresh inch or so, but it was very peculiar. It looked like something created in a Special Effects studio, by someone who had never seen actual snow.
This didn't look like snow at all; more like some type of very lightweight plastic material, blown out of a giant machine to turn a film set into
"New England Landscape."
It wasn't flakes.
It was fluffy, yet sort of clumpy, bits.
It was bits of clumpyfluff.
I don't know if these picture can convey
how totally un-snowlike this snow really was.
Maybe a close-up will help? You can also click any of these pictures
The weatherpeople say we are likely to receive quite a skyload of snow in the next couple of days. If it turns out to be more of this fluffy, odd-looking material, I will let you know. And I won't be complaining. Two feet of this stuff would certainly be a lot lighter than two feet of real snow.
