February 8 started the snowfall that became the Blizzard of 2013. During the daylight hours, there was little wind just a steady snowfall. Storm would wait until after sun set to stir up the wind that would turn the dark of night into the whiteout of blizzard. But by then I would be warmly tucked into the safety of home… So in this image I combined the afternoon view of snowfall around a stream connecting two ponds with my memory of the power of Nature I witnessed intensifying through the night.
