Ah yes I know the feeling of "shoveled for no reason" all too well! When I was a kid growing up we always had to shovel the drive where the plows came through so that we could get out ...only to have them drive by again just as we were finishing :) I think the snow is pretty to look at, but such a pain in the neck! We are supposed to have more snow before the end of the weekend, but right now things have been dry.

Yup, that looks like the real thing, alright. Brings back LOTS of memories. Those snowplow ridges you mention, Cathy, were the greatest fun when I was little - we'd dig them into tunnels and snow-forts, which, because they were slushy, would soon freeze solid. I can remember hollowing out little shelves in the wall, and after it had frozen we'd stick candles in there..... The whole thing was probably wildly dangerous in retrospect, but we came to no harm. Winters when the snow was REALLY deep, we'd create incredibly intricate tunnel systems.
Then of course, when we got older, we had to join the shovelling crew, and we had a sunken driveway, so even if only a few inches fell, it would usually blow into the hollow and fill right up :(

I can only imagine what it is like, I dont like the cold at all, I feel most uncomfortable if the thermometer reaches 16 C ... I can admire and dont really envy you having to cope with it.
Keep those camera batteries warm who knows when the photographing urge will take you.

Ah, warning of things to come! I know I shoveled last night, but it sure doesn't show just now! I woke up to about two feet on the ground outside and no evidense of a plow visiting the neighborhood in hours!

Now, the big decision is "shovel or paint" and given that i have to work tomorrow . . . but it's still snowing!

Take it slow and easy, you shovelers out there! It's very easy to overdo it!

Oh Wow, you can all keep it. Pretty to look at but I don't want a share thanks.

Do take care all of you in this winter weather, whether you are shovelling, driving or just plain walking. Wrap up warm, be careful and stay safe.

I'm sorry for you guys with all that snow, but I have to say that
I love living in California where it doesn't snow and when it does it's an event....but it's never more than a few inches and by afternoon it's gone.

Anyone wanna pack some snow in a cooler and send it my way?!

There's no chance of a white Christmas for me this year. I'll be in Texas! And right now I'm in Arkansas wishing I was out in the snow wearing my dad's ski pants and sledding with my bestest friend, Jenn.

Have fun while it lasts, but please be careful!
