Sculpted snow on the deck proves nature’s creative talents. Couldn’t resist this scene on a quiet, cold morning.
How does snow do that? It’s so wonderfully clever – how does it be convex on the table and perfectly concave, like a big ripple, underneath?
It is lovely, isn’t it? It’s concave underneath because there is less snow accumulating there, being sheltered by the table top. As the heavy snow on top settles, even more interesting things happen. The weight of it will begin to move just like a glacier, slowly compacting and sliding down with gravity.
