Looks good Josh!  I agree with Wayne and look at all that real snow to accent the sky!  I have my fingers crossed that some of that, or at least enough finally shows up here over the next week to cover the tips of tall grass.   8-)

Maybe you can get snow and it'll migrate on south to me :)
It's a muddy mess here except for right now it's semi frozen at 28 degrees!

We got enough to make 0.02" water equivalent in my CoCoRAHS gauge day before yesterday :)
Thats almost a blizzard for here  :-P

Nice setup!!!  Yeah, we don't get snow like that here in Thailand either. All the coconut and banana trees would die. Pretty to see in your pic though. \:D/

Thanks=) yea its pretty.. for the first few dumpings... then after that it gets annoying to shovel 2ft of snow and plow it, and shovel the roof and try to  get the  plow up to the station(usually end up shoveling) but your right haha its pretty to look at:)   so do you guys ever get snow??

Josh.

Here in the UK we get very little snow compared to you guys in the US and Canada. Yesterday saw the first significant fall of snow this winter. Parts of the UK had 10 inches in 24 hours. I live about 10 miles inland on the east coast. We only had a slight dusting which had gone by this morning.  :sad:

You're my kind of guy - lots of gadgets!  Great picture!  What do you call that white stuff again? :-P

The news here in the US talks like the UK is totally shut down.  Of course, they would never ever sensationalize anything!

Stay warm and drive carefully!
