So ya know Eskimos have like 40 names just for snow.....did Polynesians have any?
We spent all day digging out from 3 feet of frozen bliss. The whole city is shut down and I've been off for two days with pay. We had a ball rolling through the drifts after shoveling all day.
But I swear my oldest tiki is not happy. Him and a trio of plastic Santas are all sitting half buried in my front yard. The Santas are just as jolly as ever. But the tiki keeps muttering under his breath and throwing me dirty snide wooden looks.
I'm not too worried about him though....its the pink flamingos....they haven't been seen for days and it might be search and rescue time. Just how long can they breathe under five foot snowbanks?




Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Loving Kwanzaa, Happy New Year....let it snow let it snow let its snow!
Mr. Dale

Thank you Mr. Dale for taking that off our hands this year... we'll have a green Christmas in Wisconsin.

40 degrees and rain... and they're talking thunderstorms Friday...

First day of winter... ha!

Plastic pink flamingos are the reason there are hurricanes and floods and volcanos and blizzards.
Pele don't like dem tings.

And a blanket of fog covers most of the UK. At least it makes it Dickensian!

72 and rainy, and it's supposed to stay like this through x-mas day. I've been down here about 10 years now and still haven't gotten used to this time of year with out snow. It just doesn't seem like x-mas. Maype the Pink flamingos will go into a state of suspended animation or what ever the fake plastic animal version of that would be.

I am from upstate New York, a land of sometime ice and snow, where we dream of warmer climes. Funny thing is we've had virtually no snow this winter to date. Sales of natural gas for heating are down 40% from the same time last year ( I know this because I work for the gas company ). Of course around here we say if you don't like the weather give it a few minutes and it'll change. We'll probably be knee deep in the white stuff come St. Patrick's day. Had a brown and muddy Christmas. Happy New Years to all!

We had an unseasonably warm winter up until the middle to end of January. The Great Lakes were warmer than normal. When the cold finally came those winds crossing the lakes warm water turned into a monster snow making machine. We got about 4 to 5 feet of the white stuff. North of me, in Oswego and on the Tug Hill Plateau they got 10 to 12 feet of snow. There are people now who leave their house through the 2nd story window. I live about 45 minutes south of Oswego.


I wish I had thought to clean off part of my windshield for the picture so you could have seen my dashboard Leilani hula wiggler peeking out through the snow. Now that would have been a good pic.

Holy Cow...that is a lot of snow. I am too low for snow, but just a couple of hours away from Tahoe and it is covered in snow...I can see it when I drive home from work, it looks beautiful. Cool that ya got to stay home with a couple of days of pay. That has gotta be an expensive action for employers. Hope you still have power there. I can imagine that the tiki is not too happy covered in a coat of snow.
