View Here : Hoarfrost That Wasnt Picturesque Trees
Luke Howard was born on November 28, 1772. He lived in London, England and worked as a chemist. He was also an amateur meteorologist. On Sundays he would take his sketch book, leave the distractions of the city behind and go out into the countryside where he could watch the sky, for Luke Howard loved clouds.
This is the season of wind, and towering snowdrifts, and a vast beige-colored landscape that is occasionally dotted by white patches. It’s not the picturesque, snowy winter from our childhood visions. My winter snow is dirt-covered, wind-curled drifts that are draped across the prairie.
