The first real snow of 2008

A snow storm which made it’s way across the whole country (and shut down Las Vegas!) arrived here Friday afternoon and snowed through Saturday – in fact it never completely stopped falling here in Gloucester, and now another snow storm is dropping what looks like LOTS more!
But yesterday morning, Margaret & I dug out the cars from 6″-8″ of snow, which had drifted interestingly around the cars to create a sharp-edged profile for GBMINI#6 (maybe this is what the MINI SUV will look like!) …

Of course with the snow falling as it is right now, our cars will need digging out again tonight!

UPDATE: GBMINI#6 after more snow:

  1. I’ve lost track of how many times I shoveled over the last few days, and it keeps coming. Today’s wet heavy snow is much worse. My street hasn’t been plowed since friday afternoon. Thankfully I have completely avoided driving this weekend.

  2. Sleigh bells ring, are you listening,
    In the lane, snow is glistening
    A beautiful sight,
    We’re happy tonight,
    Walking in a winter wonderland.

    Gone away is the bluebird,
    Here to stay is a new bird
    He sings a love song,
    As we go along,
    Walking in a winter wonderland.

    In the meadow we can build a snowman,
    Then pretend that he is Parson Brown
    He’ll say: Are you married?
    We’ll say: No man,
    But you can do the job
    When you’re in town.

    Later on, we’ll conspire,
    As we dream by the fire
    To face unafraid,
    The plans that we’ve made,
    Walking in a winter wonderland.

    In the meadow we can build a snowman,
    And pretend that he’s a circus clown
    We’ll have lots of fun with mister snowman,
    Until the other kiddies knock him down.

    When it snows, ain’t it thrilling,
    Though your nose gets a chilling
    We’ll frolic and play, the Eskimo way,
    Walking in a winter wonderland.

    Walking in a winter wonderland,
    Walking in a winter wonderland.

    Merry Christmas Ian
