I can't even begin to imagine. Love the pictures, though! My kids would be amazed to see that much snow on the ground.

Beautiful photos, but I'm tiring of living vicariously. I just want one snow, 5-6" or so. I'd take more though, to spare you and Nichole...

You do take wonderful pictures of your great "yard" - it is beautiful! But I'm happy to just enjoy your portrayal of it - since those negative temps go with it. Is Oribel venturing out in that?
