    You have to be joking. I love other peoples snow. LOL! And you sure have a lot of that old white stuff. We had six inches and that was six too many for me so I would not like to dig out from all of it you have. Wow!

    Lona,
    Digging out is really not that bad. You just clear one shovel full at a time. The air is crisp, the birds sing, and the scenery is beautiful … what better place, outside of a beach in summer, to get a little exercise?

    Joene, We got about 15″ yesterday. I’m not as enthusiastic about the clean-up as you are but at least it was light and fluffy. It certainly is beautiful though.

    Light and fluffy here too, Debbie. It will be fun to grab some photos when the weather clears.

    Love the snow scenes. It’s hard to believe what it looks like even when you see it! We got about 25 to 27 inches up here. Entire horizontal junipers about 2 and 1/2 feet high have disappeared and there is not even a ripple in the snow above them to show entire shrubs are buried under there!

    Laurrie, I too have some small shrubs that have mysteriously disappeared under the snow, and a 3 foot tall sundial stand that now only shows the top six inches. It’s all beautiful, though.

    Joene, We had great snow in Maine, too — although not as much as you had. I, too, love the snow, and I got some good exercise shoveling today. Maybe tomorrow I’ll manage some cross-country skiing. 🙂

    Have fun skiing, Jean. Outside exercise during the winter is so exhilarating!
