Hi Larry,
That is one scary picture when it comes to winter! :-) You look like Santa 
Clause lost on a trail and asking, "Who Me?"

However a keeper photo come June-July or August as you're sipping on a cold 
one! :-)

Having seen some of the TV news coverage on how much snow you folks on the 
Eastern seaboard got, It confirms my choice of moving to location was quite 
correct.... Victoria BC Canada... The wet coast! :-) At least we don't have 
to shovel it. The bad side is, if and when we do get a snow fall the city is 
shut down for a few days as they don't have any snow removal equipment. 
Generally it melts as soon as it hits the ground because the ground rarely 
has enough frost to make it freeze.

Keeper photo though! :-)
