Comments: A very active snow squall before dawn was almost preventative but none of the other many cunim snow squalls visible really got us. All in all, virtually no birds but the exceptionally dramatic skies were worth every minute of discomfort!! A single big group of pigeons NE with 5 in bits going west. Mips were a single and a 2 going south.
