Snow more, please



The view from my basement (street level) door. Yes, that drift is almost 5' high. It's been snowing with high winds for the last 24 hours. The strange blue tint is from using the night setting on the flash.

From the front door. That would be my car and the drift you can see in the previous picture towards the back of it.

From the basement door without flash.

And from the Strange Things You See While Driving Around Town file, I took the pic below while on my way to the gym one lunch hour. While stopped for a pedestrian-activated traffic light, I noticed this woman crossing the street, carrying something unusual. I just got my camera out of my purse in time to snap a picture of her carrying...

a coffee table. And pulling a suitcase on wheels. Makes you wonder... was she moving house one piece of furniture at a time? Or just going for tea and bringing along a few accoutrements?

Please feel free to send some of the snow thisaway! Just a few inches would be nice...

I reckon that woman was just taking them for a walk. Coffee tables like to get out from time-to-time dontcha know :)

I'm cold just looking at it. Although the strange blue tint is pretty.

more snow ? we could do with some real snow here. the proper stuff, you know, not whispy snowflakes that go nowhere.

i think that you have caught a granny on the run from a furniture store. take those pictures straight down to the police station. you may even get a reward.

Don't taunt me, Duck!

Thanks TC and fuckit.

Good point, Zoe. I shall proceed directly to the police station. After I finish shovelling. In about 4 hours...

Wow, that's a lot of snow. I really like the pictures, especially the one where the snow turned out looking blue. Better than yellow, huh?

"Yellow snow is a naturally occuring phenomenon, and is perfectly safe to eat."

100% of TRUTH!

Ivy - Yes, the blue one is a cool shot. I like the way it caught the flakes.

Duck - By extension, so are spontaneously sprouting tomatoes.

Oh.

She was coming to mine for dinner.

A comment which will make much more sense after I've published yesterdays post*.

But my eyes hurt, and I have a mountain of work to shovel.

So I'll have to leave you in suspense.

*It isn't worth the wait, honestly.
