My backyard in winter


Watercolor sketch on Canson Aquarelle paper

These maple trees have withstood scores of blizzards from Astro to Octavia
 
to Thor and more. Some of the major blizzards of recent past were Superstorm 1993,
the Blizzard of 1996, and the President's Day 
Blizzard of 2002. With social media
ruling the roost, blizzards 
have become snowpocalypse, snowmageddon, and .... 

What a way to mess with the weather!
