A blog about a first-time house owner learning to maintain his backyard, and thoughts about nature, science, history, and life.

We had a mess of a storm come through late yesterday afternoon through earlier this afternoon, bringing pretty much every type of winter precipitation with it.  At times, it was simultaneously snowing, sleeting, and raining.  We have a word for this here in the Ithaca area - ithacation.  It's ithacating when you don't exactly know what's falling from the sky, but you know you don't like it.

In these two photos, I hope you can make out both the large snowflakes that were falling and the small ripples on the surface of Fall Creek due to rain and water drops dripping off of the branches.

Some branches were covered by only water drops, while others had snow on them as well.  Welcome to late winter snowstorms in Freeville.
