It was a shock to wake up to this unexpected snowfall, a good 5 or 6 inches of sodden wet snow. It wasn't anything like what Buffalo experienced, but by lunchtime, our street was still not plowed. Similarly, no sidewalks were plowed either. A long hike in the woods was out of the question, so I settled on hiking up the Apex trail at Knox Mountain, thinking other hardy souls would have broken trail. I was partly right. However, halfway up whoever it was that went before me turned back and so it was a good bunch of exercise getting to the top with my ice cleats.
A nearly colourless morning makes for good black and white photos.
