April Snowstorm

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 17 April 2019 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

Just when we thought Winter was behind us and Spring was well underway with daffodils and anemone blandas in bloom, Mother Nature decided to play a joke on us. This photo was taken only an hour into the start of the snowfall. By day's end, we received almost six inches of snow. Thankfully by Tuesday, it was just about gone.

Photo captured April 14, 2019.

Given these and other situations, I do not understand how there are people who do not believe in climate change.
