OK.  I just got to get in on the act.  We had a very mild winter until 
February hit us.  The day after the cattle drive photos I posted, we got hit 
with a blizzard.  No one is sure how much snow really fell.  Spots were 
almost bare and then there were all the drifts.  We had quite the drift 
(still do) in our yard.  The wood fence in this photo is 6 feet tall.  The 
snow was blowing fiercely so I could only get a few shots before the lens 
was covered.

Front yard not as bad:

More snow:

Today a little sunshine poked through now and again, while it was still 

More on the way all week.  This has been the longest snow in quite some 
time.  Been going on most every day for two weeks and the forecast all this 
week is for more.  And I was thinking we were not going to have a winter 
this year.  I thought the groundhog saw its shadow.

I know others have had it worse.  I grew up in Seattle and I know the hills, 
trees (shadows) and wet snow make that city impossible with even a few 
inches.  While we have had quite a bit, it has been very cold so the snow is 
dry and not that slick.  But it is impossible to make even a snowball, let 
alone a snowman.
