Saturday snowstorm cancels Glen Rock Homecoming events

Northern NJ (and much of the Northeast) endured yet another aberration of Mother Nature, an October snowstorm on Saturday.  Pretty, yes, but it wreaked havoc on the plans of many, including events in Glen Rock.  The Tailgate Party and the Homecoming Game were canceled. Here are some photos from the day. 

The Glen Rock Panthers, the high school football team, was all ready to play their rivals in Hawthorne.  The announcement of the cancellation of the homecoming game due to heavy snow came just a few moments after this photo was shot. (Click on any photo to enlarge).
Shooting in heavy, wet snow presents challenges for cameras.  Had I thought of it, my lens shield, which I normally use in bright sun, would have been a great accessory for the lens.  Rather than risk moisture damage to my SB-800 flash, I used my pop-up, on-camera flash.
The cheerleaders on their way off the field.  These shots required light touch up in PhotoShop, due to snowflakes being caught in the flash.

The homecoming game has been rescheduled .. and at least the kids got to be together for a while, without having to be out in it all afternoon.  (They enjoyed the following Monday and Tuesday off from school due to downed trees and lines, and widespread power outages).   Please click here for the full article.
