Beautiful... if you don't have to shovel it or drive in it. Nice shots.

Very nice, jelpee. I was thinking that's what I'd see when I opened this. So, are you in the line to get more tomorrow?

I guess we're going to get some too this time.

Thanks for the kind words Dustin and Shoturtle.

gj: As a fellow Ketuckian you know that it does not snow that much in these parts to justify owning a snow blower. That's why 6 of us neighbors jointly own one. Therefore, shoveling is a snap. BTW, I was in Louisville this past Friday evening for the All State high school Choral event at the Kentucky Arts Center downtown..my older daughter was part of it.


Patty: This snow was from Friday night/Saturday morning. A nice wet snow it was and as you can tell clung to the branches. Got about 6 inches. When my daughter and I headed out into the woods, the first thing she said was that it reminded her of Narnia! We received another 4 inches today and 3 more expected overnight. The kids are loving it since school is out. Alas, I am expected in the office tomorrow--I'd rather be out with the camera instead.

I picked up a Toro Power Shovel. Most of the time it gets the job done quite well. It worked today but I got out too late. My wife had driven up and down the driveway packing down that wet snow. So, after I power-shoveled, I had to break up the packed down part and push off the remainder. I *just* finished when the second wave of about an inch coated it again. Hopefully, when we get back from Ohio on Monday, it will be gone!

What beautiful snow pictures! I know what you mean about wanting to be out with the camera instead of at work - can't you manage to get snowed in? I'm sort-of hoping we have enough tonight and that the snow level is low enough to close the interstate, but they don't expect anything close to that amount.

Isn't your snow like ours - it comes, it's beautiful and then it melts before it can wear out its welcome?

These are beautiful. And what I really like about them is that they weren't taken in my yard (Buffalo, NY). We have less than an inch of new snow right now.
