16″ of snow this past week. I don’t much care for snow pictures, but the problem with having camera gear is the obligation to document such events. I tried to will myself into taking some clever photos, but snow is a pretty monadic subject matter, and while postholing through the puffy landscape was reminded that I like taking snow pictures even less than looking at them. It’s pretty fun to be out in the stuff, but found I had more fun shoveling the driveway, shaking free the overburdened branches, and making a snow scuttle to pull some of the snowload off the roof before I finally took off my backpack. I did pace from window to window over the next few days, but found the best I could do was accuse the landscape of petty treachery.
