I'm hoping we get hit like that. I like the sheer quiet during the snowfall and then after it's fallen. Plus it's beautiful to look at. Then we're usually snowed in.
I make a pot of soup or stew or chili....maybe bake something....then, head out with the snowblower and all the neighbors are doing the same.
If someone gets stuck, you help em push out. It's a real feeling of community.
But yeah, the roads suck for a while....and then after a few days, it's all in dirty grey piles by the side of the road and your car is covered in a yucky film of road-salt. Eh, it's a trade-off.
I'm not SW but if I'm not mistaken, I think she got that from a site that offered them for sale and as a prize before finding out the design was one that was copyrighted. Lucky her!
Nancy, that is very cool. Have you ever gotten pics of the foxes?
I was oo-ing and ahh-ing over the pics of everyone's snow amounts and the tales of thunder-snow and the gale-force winds on the news.....snowicane sounds about right!
Red, you haven't lived til you've fallen backwards into deep
snow and made a snow angel....or gone sledding....or tried to take a walk in snow up to your hoo-ha....or your parents got the day off with you cuz the snow drifts kept the garage door from being opened or from being able to drive out of your own driveway!
