Snow Moon over Two Union

According to the full "Snow" moon occurred on February 14th. It's still looking pretty full as it glides over Two Union Tower here this morning (February 16th). Full moon names date back to Native Americans, and, according to the article at the link above, the story behind Snow Moon is:  Usually the heaviest snows fall in this month.  John doesn't think too many folks from the eastern US would quible with that given recent weather.

Overnight, here in Seattle, we had heavy rains with gusty winds, but the temperature has remained fairly mild in the mid 40s (F). Some large breaks in the overcast allowed our morning photo. Today's sunrise will be about twelve minutes after seven.

Have a good Sunday. As always, thank you for stopping by John's Island.


  1. That is a very interesting picture, John. It blew up here in Bellingham most of the night, too. Things crashing on the porch woke me up and I had to go nail things down a bit. :-)

  2. That is quite an excellent capture. As a 2nd grade teacher, I thought Mother Nature's timing of Valentine's Day parties and a full moon wasn't a good combination! lol

  3. Great shot.Where I live,we often get the heaviest snow in March.

  4. The beautiful full moon looks like it is sitting atop the tower. Stunning photograph, John! I like the highlighted wispy clouds around the moon. February has been especially snowy for us here in the Midwest. 5 - 8 inches are expected today. I hope your day was sunny and spectacular!
