A major snowstorm swept into my area overnight here in northeastern Kentucky, and so far I have about 6 inches of snow on the ground. It looks like a Winter Wonderland outside!
So far the freezing rain is still south of me headed east, but it is supposed to push up into my area by early afternoon. If that happens then we will have a real mess here with ice on top of all this snow!
All the local schools have shut down today, as well as our local Community College. The State Police were on tv early this morning telling motorists not to get on the roads unless they absolutely have to. We are expecting the ice to come next, and then 2-4 more inches of snow to fall on top of that later this evening and overnight. Temperatures are presently sitting at a chilly 25 degrees.
This is our second significant snowfall this Winter, and areas in higher elevations woke up to over a foot of snow!
I took this photo this morning, then added a few lighting and layering effects in Photoshop. I later experimented with the Orton effect until I reached the opacity and image I desired.
