I miss the snow!

I'm originally from Connecticut and grew up around snow. Ive lived in ND, MS, AL, FL, SC, NH and CT. I haven't seen snow in 3+ years.

As long as I don't have to shovel it, I'm fine.

Drifts were a couple of feet high over portions of MN. That is a little scary for late April

may I ask how snow "drifts" differ from "blizzards"...I have a vague idea what each is, but since you seem to be able to measure the heights of the "drifts" can you tell me exactly how each develops and how long they last....Im so intrigued and in love with snow, even tho I see that many are not....guess its easy to say from where Im sitting in Florida, my hat goes off to all you strong folks who have to shovel this great wonder...thanks for more interesting thoughts....

Blizzards are what falls out of the sky, it's what we call snow as it's falling, as it happens.

Drifts are whats already on the ground during a storm.,... and gets blown in higher heights by the wind then what it was when it fell.

Make sense?

Hi Paul
My place is 9 miles SE of Minot just off Hwy 52. It's my little piece of heaven. It was taken in August 2004 when I was looking to buy the place. Since then we have bought an additional 35 acres up on the hill.

Here is a satellite photo of the place plus the 35 acres.


Thanks for the kind comments.
