Here's my Minnesnowta picture.

Seven days earlier, I had bare (dead) grass for a lawn. Seven days later it's under anywhere from 5"-36" of snow depending on where the drifts are. This show it pretty average for my yard lights though. With the exception of one lone light in the middle of the yard, they are all burried about this much.

That is nothing: the bird feeder in my backyard is way under.
The kids made an igloo last night in the snow bank on the side of the driveway.
Too bad I was busy snowblowing and in no mood to take a shot.

My colleague's wife took momentum to get over the plowed snow in front of the driveway and ended up in the ditch across the street. At least she was back home in no-time:-)

Wow! That's some snow. Bird feeder covered? I love snow, but there's such a thing as too much of a good thing - hope you all dig out sometime soon.

Yep, the end of the driveway is impossible to see around, and the kids (mine included) are all making snow caves too. I noticed on my way out this evening, I noticed the snow was up to the top of the mailboxes, but that 's plowed snow. Nature burried the lights.

You are right: it is mainly because of the drifts I get on the slope. It was late but going around the house I noticed some interesting stuff I hope to take shots of tomorrow.

Here is one from across the street shot through the window on tripod with Sigma 18-125mm on manual focus @45mm, F11, 6 sec, ISO-400 (shot in RAW and WB adjusted for tungsten):

I like this shot. Good night time photography techniques.
