Backyard Late Winter Nature in New Jersey.

We had a reminder that it is still winter today. Yesterday it was 65°F/18°C and sunny. Snow started coming down about 07:00 and continued until 13:00, with about 3 inches of accumulation. By 14:00 the sun was back out, and the snow was sliding off the solar panels. Yesterday, the solar panels generated 64 kWh of electricity, today only 3 kWh.

I am a scientist by training (Eckerd College, BSc; Caltech, Ph.D.). I worked for 27 years as a Chemist in the Pharmaceutical Industry developing processes to manufacture medicines for human and animal health. I now spend my time as a photographer updating images in My Image of the Day Photoblog, and My eBird (with images of nearly 450 bird species). hope post COVID-19 to be a world traveler again. My interests include the natural world, wildlife, landscapes, sky, and seascapes, travel, and astrophotography. I look for unique ways of viewing the world and presenting my images. I have traveled to over 55 countries in six continents, often on Semester at Sea voyages. While at home in New Jersey, I spend time on home renovation and expansion of a wildflower garden/meadow.
