Let it snow

Unlike a certain young lady I know in Smalltown, Iowa, who claims to have already gotten over 40 inches of snow this winter, we've hardly gotten any at all. Insterad, according to the paper the other day, we've set a new record this year for February rainfall. We're finally getting some more snow today, though; what we've gotten thus far is actually a healthy percentage of what we'd already gotten since Thanksgiving. My joy was slightly tempered by the fact that there wasn't a cloud in the sky when I got home last night, so I didn't cover my van window*, but that's a small price to pay for the pleasure of snow.

* It's been open about two and a half years now. I got one of those do-it-yourself car-repair books from the library, but all it told me was that car doors are tricky and complicated affairs, and should be left for the professionals. Since the cost of repairing it would probably be about what the van itself is worth....

We're up to over 50 now RM1! 50! And nary a mountain nor a lake effect in sight.

I'm glad you're enjoying the snow :)
