Why, yes, we DID get snow!

Ahhh...we've been waiting for "the other shoe to drop" here in Minnesota for YEARS. Every winter we hear that this time it'll snow like crazy, but then the storm waltzes right on by...I mean, who thinks of New York as a snowy state?? We're loosing our bragging rights and the snowmobile dealers have even closed-up shop around here...can you imagine?


...we actually got a good FOOT or more yesterday. I woke up this morning because there was NO sound--and I live next to a 4 lane highway. Wha...? wasn't till I went outside for a little shovel-fun that I saw the huge muffler on the roof. Isn't that COOL?

Wanna see how deep it is?

Ok, that doesn't look like much and it's always deepest right there in front of the garage, but it reminded me of this picture circa 1955.

(Yes. You're right. There really was more snow when we were

    We got close to the same amount of snow, I think.

    My mom called me and was happily exclaiming over the "smell of fresh snow," and how she hadn't smelled it for years. It was at that moment that I realized THAT was what I had been smelling, as I snowblowed/shoveled pathways. Couldn't place my finger on it, it's been so long.

    What a photo! What snow! I remember that, as a child, we used to get a LOT more snowfall. However,the snowfall was still a pitance compared to about 30 years ago. There's a photo of my dad, when he was in his early 30's, and it was evident that a tractor (or two!)had been used to plow out a driveway... I swear he looked like a little ant, standing next to the enormous drifts in the picture!

    And yes... Who would have thought that snowmobile dealers would go out of business due to a progressive pattern of mild, fast-melting-snow winters??

    How much snow do you have now?!
    I myself am quite grateful for a snowblower!

  4. Hi, Rainy--yeah, there's a bit more I have a propane tank outside my office window, and yesterday, you could still see that it's blue. This morning--nope!
    Good thing I have pics to post, huh? ;^)
