Snow Day

Seems like everyone in the US has either gotten, or is getting snow.  For those of us here in the midwest, this isn’t big news.  But for people stuck in Seattle, or Las Vegas it’s huge.

Admittedly, the six inches we just got today on top of the roughly 12 inches that have accumulated over the last week isn’t affecting us much.  But everyone seems to be posting snow pictures on their blogs, so I feel I must also.   First is a picture of our back yard from the back door:

Snow - back

The next one is of our street, out front, from the same vantage point.  It’s hard to see it in the picture, but there’s about 2-3 feet of snow along the curblines.  This is a neat effect we get here in snow plow states, where the snow actually gets higher off the streets because the snow plows throw it there.

Snow - Street

Now if you look at that front minivan closely, you’ll notice:

To keep the wipers from freezing to the windshield overnight.  Seriously.
