The Blizzard of 2010
You know what I learned today? It's really hard to take pictures of snow falling. Or at least it is with my iPhone. For a while there was lots of snow coming down here in Austin. Lots and lots of big ol' white flakes (it wasn't accumulating on the ground all that much because the ground was too warm, but it was falling pretty hard), but when I would try to snap a picture it really didn't look like it was snowing at all. Just looked sort of grainy or misty. Must have something to do with the speed of the snow and the shutter speed, or something like that.
Anyway, I went home at lunch time. I let Cassidy out. She ran out into the back yard, squinted up at the falling snow, examined the cold stuff under her feat, and made a bee line right back for the house. I barely had a chance to even snap this picture. What a wimp! (of course, you don't see me standing out in it, either)
