Still Waiting For Snow

Winter continues to be delayed here and we are still waiting for snow. We are filing complaints as loudly as we can about the unfairness of it all.

Scanning the skies. Clouds but no snow (except at the ski area next door).

We commonly see our first snow around Halloween every year, but have seen only the briefest of flurries so far this year. Just as a reminder, here are pictures from November 1 last year.

So, Hu-Dad, we want some actual snow falling and some Siberian Snow games. Please start work on that right away. We will continue to protest until all is right in our world.

Any questions, Hu-Dad? Still waiting for snow

    Hey Typhoon, perhaps you can convince the Hu-dad to take you guys next door? Tell him you’d be great for tourism! 😉

    Ice ‘n Ebby both say: Sooooowoorry you don’t have any snow yet. It’s late up here, too. We had about three inches of it over the weekend, and that’s all. Most years, we’re up to our “knees” in it by this time.

The Iceman Cometh No More

The iceman cometh no more. I can now fill a glass with ice and water direct from the door of the refrigerator. Why am I awed by this miracle?
