2014-02-17 Rave On

How hard is it snowing? The normally unflappable contrast-based autofocus system of the Panasonic G5 was locking onto the falling snowflakes(see last image), rather than the intended subject. I’ve never seen that happen before. At one point it was essentially a white-out – I couldn’t see across the street. Warm-up arrives tomorrow, which is not necessarily a good thing, as it brings with it a high likelihood of flooding. It’ll be short-lived however, as temperatures on Saturday will dip back below normal, with more snow arriving over the weekend. I can now safely say that this is one of the worst winters I’ve ever encountered.

Over on the NPR blog, there’s an interesting story about how a weakening jet stream via climate change may be responsible for these types of persistent weather patterns.
