Most years, we get lots of fluff from the cottonwood poplar trees we have around. Some years, if there is no rain to pack it down, and no strong winds to blow it away, we can get 2 or 3 inches of fluff from them on the ground, for quite a way around the trees. In 2012 we had some high winds. The following two videos show the fluff blowing around.

These shots are from my balcony. I realized that it was reasonly nice looking, especially at this time of year, so wanted to capture the view. This was June 17, 2012, and the late lilac is still in bloom.
This is supposedly the largest crane in Canada, and the 5th largest in the world - it is out on refinery row doing something. This is the best shot I can get, unfortunately. This also was taken on June 17, 2012.
I finally got a picture of one of these little guys. June 8, 2012
