Default Winter's Not Over Yet

Started snowing yesterday morning about 0500, and quit at about 1900. Small flakes 'til about 1400, then it got serious. Total at my place about a foot. Cleared up over night, and was -5 F this morning.

Here's a little irony for ya. The last two weeks have been very warm, and all the snow was gone. The high school cross-country ski team that my wife coaches had to drive to the mountains for practice. They thought they were going to have to cancel the State championships, but they 'toughed it out' (skied on dirt and ice), Thursday, Friday and Yesterday. Of course after the State championships, the season is over. Then it shows a foot, and the temperature drops to about 10F during the day. Now that's frustrating. Doesn't "do" too much for me either, as I've got a long driveway to clear of a foot of snow.

The good news is that we are less than a month from the Vernal equinox, and daylight is comin' on fast. We've already got at least 12 hours of shootin' light, and it's only gonna get better from here.
