Just some typical winter pictures I took last year. We had 3 or 4 decent storms, but otherwise it was kind of a crappy winter. Started off good, then fizzled off. I love winter and snow and can't wait until all this freaking heat ends.











These last two (yes, I know, they're crap quality) are from a storm over Christmas 2003 that dropped 28 inches once all was said and done (then some of it melted, then more fell, then repeat for, like, a week, haha).

bob rulz.... thanks for posting those. I used to live in SLC and miss the seasons and winter badly. I don't get to enjoy them here in Austin.

I agree. Seems as if those of us who have to deal with snow and frost could easily do without. And those who don't have just forgotten how nasty it is in winter.

Some garden impressions:

Our cat dislikes snow as well:

Here is a picture taken outside our National Weather Service in Grand Forks North Dakota back on October 24, 2001. 13 inches of snow.

That sucks. I could never live in a place that didn't see regular snow. I've come to love the stuff; can't live without it! And I think the summers here are bad enough, even though some other parts of the country are hotter (when you add in humidity) and it's a dry heat.

However, I think it would help a lot if it actually rained more in summer, and it does in most areas.

Nice pictures. Keep them up!

Where I grew up, most of the year is at minimum cold enough to need sleeves or a coat. I know very few people who actually like to wear coats. To our family, coats are a sign of either undesireable or oppressive weather.

I actually desire a minimum of 2-3 months a year with heat indexes consistantly between 100-110 F. I love it when the air feels saturated with warmth, like a heavy blanket.

(My summer vacations to South Carolina got me "hooked on heat.")

We don't need anymore rain.
Where I'm from our hotter and drier summers usually mean good news for a lot of farmers since crops ripen faster.

Yes, they are nice pictures. "Snow-topiary" is often neat to look at.
I just hate it when they add salt and sand to make it go brown-black.
