January, 2013 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

The canals were frozen, and so was I.

In this context, "canals" is more precise than "channels". (Also, since I'm commenting anyway, and because it might amuse you, I saw your username and guessed that you lived in Madrid and were posting a photo taken yesterday or today. I was surprised to see so little snow until I read the caption). Peter Taylor‭ 4 months ago

@Peter Taylor thanks, edited! (not sure what on my profile suggests I live in Madrid... Not the avatar, I guess :P) fedorqui‭ 4 months ago

Nothing: it was just a wild extrapolation from knowing that you're a Spanish speaker (and having the strong impression that a native Spanish speaker), and you posting a photo of snow the day after my news was full of stories about record snowfall in Madrid. Now that you mention the avatar I twig what it is, but I haven't seen many lazos amarillos around Valencia so I didn't recognise it without the prompt to think about what it might mean.

@Peter Taylor Yes, are right! I am a native Spanish speaker and living in the area right now! Good to know we are close-by, for whenever we schedule the first Codidact meetup :) fedorqui‭ 4 months ago

This was taken in the foothills of Ben Armine, Sutherland, Scotland, January 2019. I drove through torrential rain to get there, but in the highlands it was all snow.

Same storm as this answer. I was struck by how the snow piles formed on the tree branches.

In February 2010 in Pittsburgh, PA, a storm dropped 26 inches on us overnight. I do not understand the physics of how this snow along the top of a fence did that, but it stayed that way for more than a week.

Beautiful! Sometimes the freezing over night creates this beautiful shapes. I assume the temperature drops after a while and freezes back the snow that was melting fedorqui‭ 4 months ago
