Round 2

We had a pretty wicked blizzard going on yesterday...bad enough that school was canceled and everything in the village (read: the store and the gas station) was closed. We had a nice little snowdrift inside the back door of our house.

Then, it kinda let up last night and was fine this morning.

Then it kicked up again this afternoon. This is what it looks like outside right now (or at least 15 minutes ago, when I was walking to school):

Mind you, the picture doesn't really do the scene justice. For instance, that drift in the middle of the picture is about, oh, 7 or 8 ft tall. And it wasn't there this morning. I had to run home from school to grab the checkbook a little while ago, and in the 3 minutes I was in the house and started to walk back, the drifts had shifted and there were new little baby 2 foot drifts on the path I had just taken. Footprints and snowgo tracks just made disappear in minutes. It's pretty neat, actually. Except when you have to walk through it.

We're going to try to get some good pics this weekend...
