I just had to post an image from this morning… the day after the great February snow storm in Philadelphia 2010. Unofficially I measured 23 inches outside my back door. This is an amazingly architectural crabapple tree, Malus zumi, in a forgotten courtyard at the Scott Arboretum of Swarthmore College. There was evidence that students had played during the snowstorm… campus looked like a thousand people had trodden through the snow by 7am today. The sky after one of these storms is always the brightest blue and the trees were still full of snow, outlining their bare forms.
