Caption: Like miniature Badlands, the tiny, grains of snow slid like sand through an hourglass, through the cracks between the deck boards. I've never seen it happen like this before.

Yes that was my thought also Ivan. Remarkable crevasses, or erosion as in badlands.

Quoting kippic:
That almost looks like what you see in a glacier.
I'll have to upload an old photo of the Nisqually Glacier. It will go to archive for over 7 days but will be in my Mt. Rainier series.
Granted the glacier is a lot more dirty than your snow.

Must be a very frozen snow with fine grains. Makes for a neat shot.

It's very tiny, grainy sandy snow Sharon, like... well, like sand. Very odd. You could see the 'grains' falling down the 'slopes' of snow. They had nothing to cling to, like flakes that have six sides would have. And it is very dense.

I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System).
