Celebration?

It might sound strange that I’m celebrating the mounding inches of snow.

The original forecast was for ice up to maybe 1 inch before turning to sleet and then snow after that.

Celebrate — the freezing rain turned to sleet much earlier yesterday afternoon than expected. Sleet still fell at midnight last night,

and snow was falling when I got up this morning. We were to get only a couple of inches.

Now, the fallen snow measures eight inches or more. It’s to stop in a few hours.

Tomorrow’s to be sunny and cold. The next front’s to arrive Saturday night with a wintry mix Sunday into Monday.

My storm experience started 11-ish last night while the sleet was falling. It was a good time for taking orb pictures.

I had no witnesses as I aimed my camera through the lower part of the screen where the cats had pulled it loose.

Orbs are said to be emanations of spirit beings. Notice how many orbs are in lines. There’s too many lines for this to be a coincidence. I usually take orb pictures every evening. Some nights there’s almost none, and other nights they’re everywhere. Size, the intensity and even the color can vary.

Pictures like this result from aiming the camera at the floor, focusing it and then raising it take the picture. The orange (lower right) is the security light seen in the picture above. The orange on the left side is the edge of our security light.

I wonder what orbs tonight will bring with this storm winding down?
