Tenant Parking Only

Torrington, Connecticut

I think I've mentioned here before that there's an absolutely magical quality to the light you get when there's a full overcast, but it's thin enough that you can clearly see where the sun is hiding. When the sun "comes out" all the way the light is harsh and uninteresting, when the overcast thickens enough that you can't find the sun's position, the light gets flat and dull. That in-between point really is magical, and a thick coating of snow on everything just makes it better still.

Carl, my absolute favorite time is when the sky conditions are as you describe, but instead of snow on the ground, a light rain has fallen, or it has just rained. Not quite so cold, either.
