Now that is a snow.

I just got this picture from my sister.

It snowed up in Illinois and it has definitely put my snow to shame.

I really miss those big snows. I can only remember one really big one from when I was a kid. My dad calls it "the snow storm of '79." So it must have been big enough and significant enough to remember.

I also lived up in Wisconsin on more than one occasion, and I can remember a couple of doozies when I was there. One winter I can remember that the water tower at the Northland campus froze. The entire campus was without any significant water pressure for a couple of days. A couple of smelly days.

Anyway, I thought that I would post this picture just so my southern friends could see what a real snow looks like...


  1. Coming from a place where it never snows I must say that I enjoy seeing pictures like that one.

    I must also admit to enjoying the fact that I don't have to deal with the mess when it all starts to melt.

  2. Yeah, the mess after a big snow is so dreary too.

  3. It looks like that in Indiana right now too!

  4. I know, I kinda wish I was up there so that I could enjoy the big drifts. I haven't been sledding in years.


Leave a thought of your own.
