I hadn't taken the time to scroll through these yet this year. Mostly out of heart brokenness for the crappy winter I just exited. Those are truly awesome pictures and I'm sure a stretch of days you won't forget soon.

 

Aside from a perfect, clear, colorful and crisp autumn, which happens only every few years here, snow and ice are 2 of the most beautiful things one can see, in my opinion.

 

Maybe this will finally be the winter I get to share some awesomeness with the rest of the forum. Haven't had real winter since I joined on 10-05-15. Almost 4 years...

Any summer/non-winter photos to share? This is sort of an all-seasons thread (or has been in the past).

I would, but every time I share a photo on here it turns upside down. I've never known why. It just ticks me off so I don't waste my time.

If you have an IPhone you need to hit “Edit” while viewing the pic, then rotate 180, then hit save, then go and rotate 180 again and save, then it will post normally. Don’t ask me why but it’s the only way I can get the pics to not post upside down.

I have an android, but I'll try that out in the future. Thank you!! I've taken many pictures over the last 4 years (they're lost now, of course) that I'd love to share with my friends here, but it's just embarrassing. Lol. I appreciate finally getting an answer.

 

This fall and winter should be pretty awesome so I hope to get to try it out soon.

Some of the weather videos from my phone I recently compiled and uploaded. Just a few of the 150+ videos sitting idle on my phone, but whatever. Got 4 up just today.

 

Anyway..2016 blizzard recap. Can’t believe it’s been 4yrs already.

Windstorm Thanksgiving Eve 2019. Rough night & groggy holiday for our guests staying on the West side of the house.

After a number of rough wind events during the first week of March, this guy wire bracket on my anemometer pole had had enough and gave way.

 

The steel bracket literally warped and ruptured, sending the guy wire recoiling through the air, snapping off from the fastened base bracket and launching into the trees. It’s a heavy pole, but I didn’t know the microswaying could put this much tension on an individual bracket. Will definitely have to rethink this.

Huge storm today. Blast of wind snapped branches and threw tree debris hundreds of feet in the air. A few MoCo MESONET stations recorded winds to ~ 70mph.

 

Caught some pictures of the first two gusts. Can see some debris aloft and breaking branches in the canopy.

Some violent updrafts today in this swampy airmass.
