How A Pandemic Snowy Day Looks Like in December 2020

2020 has been hard on all of us with the pandemic and everything. At least, a bright side of that is that due to the lower exposure to human beings to the environment, Mother Nature could recover a little bit without too much intervention during this year.

A snowstorm was announced in New Jersey for 12/14/2020. Some newscasters said it would drop off as much as 18 inches of snow in some areas. I always wanted to take pictures of those cozy neighborhoods covered in snow, but with snow, either you are the first or no deal. That is because people start messing up the fluffy nature creation with their cars.

This year was the right year to take this kind of photo of a cozy neighborhood over a snowy day. Most people are working from home, and not having to go out early morning for commuting allowed me some extra time for the sunlight to kick-in.

Those pictures were taken in Hoboken, New Jersey, during a snowstorm in the morning. I am glad my equipment is weather sealed. If it was not, I would be in trouble with water inside my camera since a strong wind gust came once and snow accrued in between the lens hood and the front glass. I kinda got desperate and used my hand warmer to melt it down. My main concern was having ice entering the camera and not leaving due to the weather-sealed rubbers.
