How exciting! This year’s first snowfall was on the evening of January 3, 2018 here in Durham, North Carolina. Of course, being obsessed with nature photography, I couldn’t pass up this opportunity to take a bunch of photographs to document this event as well as a short video too! Durham, NC got around 1.5 inches of snow overall. Though unfortunately, most of it will not melt by the weekend as its going to be super cold and with below freezing temperatures as a high.
I did hear that the storm strengthened last night as it went up the coast towards the northeast states. That and the meteorologists (or some weather folks at least) are calling this storm a “bomb cyclone” I believe too.
This photo above here I took while walking my apartments’ parking lot. It was coming down pretty good.
This was a random closeup shot of snow covered bushes nearby. It was so beautiful I couldn’t resist!
This is one of the Gazebos near my apartment complex. With the way the light was and the snow, I was having too much fun running around taking photographs of everything. It was just beautiful out despite the freezing temperatures.
Then of course, below is a short video I took of just watching the snow come down. It was a lot of fun and everything was pretty quiet overall too.
If your being affected by this storm, how much snow do you have so far? Were you able to get prepared before the storm hit? Or have any photographs you want to share to document this event, feel free to leave it in the comments below too!
