I won't show that to my DP or I may never get him to Maine. He is ok with the cold but really nervous about driving in snow and ice! Will just not talk about that and certainly not put that picture on the computer screen for background. lol

No problems, you can make out the roadway and snowbanks in that picture. Look close they're there! Spend a few hours driving in that mess and those things POP right out at you.

Show of hands: How many of you have driven with the side window down peering through the snow watching the snowbank pass on the left side counting "Openings" to know when you get to the right one to turn down, then count openings to know the right driveway to turn into?

Mines up

Oh I know that those of us who drive in it can see the banks. just pointing out that they are there, they can be seen and you can make your way someplace if you have to when you are used to it. When I was in Dallas for a couple of years if there was snow flakes in the AIR, people were going nuts trying to get home before it got too bad to drive.

Cardinals are my favorites! Thanks for the pics. I'm using your cardinal shot as a background, hope that's okay.
