Not 48 hours ago, snow was still falling. Thank goodness for the change of flow. Today was as bright as any summer day could be though some more warmth was in order. Very much excited upon seeing the sun up in the sky, I went for a 2-hour jolly walk in an arboretum in Ann Arbor.
I took about 20 to 30 photos and this is probably my favorite:
I think the photo could have been better if I could take a sip of the sky into the photograph. I’d love to get a second shot of it if time and weather permit me to enjoy another stroll tomorrow.This like the next photo too:
Too bad I couldn’t figure out what’s the best lighting for it. In my opinion, the blue hue is too strong.It has been a long time since I last heard a bird or two sang when I’m still in bed. For the past few days however, hearing the birds singing while it was snowing was rather strange.
A trivia, this freak snow is the latest snowfall in more than 110 years.
“On April 3 and April 4 of 2003, we had an ice storm after temperatures rose to nearly 70 degrees on April 1,” he said. “The biggest snowstorm to ever hit the Detroit area was on April 6, 1886 when 24.5 inches of snow fell and the latest snowstorm we ever had was the five to six inches of snow that fell over May 21 and May 22 of 1883.”
It’s a record. Well, Ann Arbor is not really in the Detroit area (more like New York…) so I don’t know. But, as far as I am concerned, I don’t want any record-breaking event related to snow. I want my spring. Now. Period.
