Fresh snow on the ground makes everything look clean and pretty. Its hovering around 1C and is bright and clear today.

yes, doesn't it though? there's something cleansing and uplifting about new-fallen snow--in small amounts.:) when the snow begins piling up high and deep it can become suffocating, and stops being fun (for me) anyway....

I still love the memory of the morning we woke up and the snow had fallen so long that three foot of snow was on top of everything. No wind, perfect. Seeing fence posts with at least 15 inches of snow and cars with 3" of snow...it was fantastic. The only engines running were snow plows and the city bus. We went for a ride around town on the bus.

It took me close to a week to dig the car out. Good thing I was on Christmas Break at the time, Shrek had a hard time getting to work, he had to use my bus pass to get back and forth. That was also the time when the car wouldn't start, as soon as I had it dug out (I wasn't in any hurry) I found Shrek had been trying to start it in Drive. Started right up for me, he could have been driving the whole time, but i took his word for it not starting. Now I check it myself.

we all know that your shreck is a dear prize in plenty of other ways... but, pf, didn't you know this about him already? enough to know to personally try to start the car yourself, behind him? just to be sure?

DH and I went for a nice long walk in 50, while listening to his newly applied Slacker radio app on his iPhone. I left the axe at home.

Couldn't believe so few folks were out enjoying the weather!
