I'm sitting in MN getting excited for all of you. There's nothing like that first real blast of snow!! It can be a lot of fun (and it can be a real pain).

Although the snw is coming down and blowing hard, my driveway has remained miraculously clear of snow all day... almost like it's heated or something.

Do you really ever go anywhere when you have that much snow or do you cozy up at home?

We're at 7500' near Palmer Divide. I estimate around 6" fell, but the wind is really messing with the drifts. Top picture was taken about 30 minutes ago. Bottom was last week after the snow on Tues.

I prefer to stay home by the fireplace or walk around outside and take photos.
When we get more than 18" I don't like to drive unless the roads are plowed. BUT If our ski area was open I'd have gone skiing!
The snow was a few inches above my knees when I took these.
