A pair of snow-filled fall photos captured on camera by an American pilot in October, a month after the snowfall, show how the weather can change in just a few days.
On Thursday, the pilot from the U.S. Air Force Academy took his first picture of snow on the Great Lake, Michigan, shore.
He took a closer look on Sunday when the snow fell over the Great Plains.
In both photos, the water was freezing.
The pilot, Ryan Broussard, posted the photos to his Instagram account, and he shared the photos on Twitter, saying they show how a snowstorm can cause a cascade of icy water.
The weather is changing daily, he wrote.
Snow is falling in the Great lakes, the mountains, in the Midwest, and all around the world.
There is no such thing as a perfect storm.
There are days that are really bad.
But on the other side of the world, it’s not snowing in the mountains.

“Every pilot knows when something bad happens,” said David Zaretsky, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Ann Arbor.
“It’s a really common occurrence.
I’m not sure it’s as common as the snowstorm.”
Broussards photos show a snowplow hitting a highway in Michigan on October 10, 2017.
