That's not enough to keep us from getting up the driveway. I Just plowed it to put down a base for the snowblower, so I wouldn't shoot all my gravel off into the bush.

After November, it's ok to speak it, very quietly.

It's a little over 3 bush chord. It just looks small taken with the 8-16. The shed itself is 14 across by 8 deep and you can pile 7 feet high. it's definitely bigger than it looks in the picture.

This was the first that stayed on the ground. Last year it was a couple weeks earlier. They said this storm blew up from Texas... thanks Rupert.

We've had about 2 feet of snow for a week now. Yay! Already went skiing a couple times.

It's a nice change of pace.

I don't think the free trade agreement allows the export of snow.

No snow here yet. Your lovely pic shows why I'm eager for it, though

After the long drawn out "Brown-vember" when everything is just flat and lightless, snow is a welcome relief. Winter is tough, but late fall is completely devoid of zip.

Great term. I'll remember it. I might even remember I learned it from you.
