Thundersnow.

Yesterday, they were on the High Line.

And though crocuses are hardy…
Today, dievca is pretty sure they are gone.

Thundersnow can do that to you.

Thundersnow, also known as a winter thunderstorm or a thundersnowstorm, is an unusual kind of thunderstorm with snow falling as the primary precipitation instead of rain. It typically falls in regions of strong upward motion within the cold sector of an extratropical cyclone. Thermodynamically, it is not different from any other type of thunderstorms, but the top of the cumulonimbus cloud is usually quite low. In addition to snow, graupel, or hail may fall. ~ wikipedia

PS. there is more snow – this is what has shown up on a protected corner of dievca’s fire escape. she’s barefoot and not about to step out for better photos, sorry. XO
