Promised Pictures

The first couple of pictures were taken in January, when the snowbanks were only 5 foot tall or so on the East side of my driveway. The remainder were taken tonight, before and after shoveling, with snowbanks in excess of 7 foot tall. Don't you wish you lived next to me? I don't think I'll be firing up the Webber for another month or two. Well, maybe I'll think about digging it out this weekend.

You have a bit of snow there, Chief! Good to put a face to the name!

You can dig that Weber out and bring it on over here. The weather couldn't be better for grilling!

Hard to believe that I get better looking every day, isn't it?
Let's see if I can find one of my classic shoveling pictures? Nope. And it is now, officially late. I'm going to bed. Good night everyone.

Yep, now when you see me coming, you'll be able to hide yourself so as not to get caught up in a multi-hour chat.

IF that's the case, please don't share any pictures from your youth!

Thanks a lot, Pal. That little angel smile at the end of your post is a prime example of irony. And as most people don't understand what irony means, look it up.

It's all good. It's not like I never poke fun at anyone around here. Besides, I have my virtual snowball carrying B52 up in the air and heading your way. What's the effective snowball load in that baby. Snowstrom's-a-commin'.
