A quick blast of snow came through this afternoon. As I watched it out my office window I was lamenting how much I missed summer.

Seeing the trees out the window reminded me of when I took some photos of the progression of the leaves growing on them. It was a fun little project over about three weeks. But today I only saw the dead but still clinging leaves left on them as I scowled at the small amount of fresh powder that had fallen.

This is what it looked like out my window today.

But way back on May 17 of 2019, I was officially blocked from seeing anything out my window except for the curb and cars that parked in those spots, as seen below.

Okay thanks, January, it's been fun but I think I'm done with you.
