I'm jealous. It's been hanging around 65 here for the last couple days and is expected to stay that way for the rest of the week.

Not sure why I clicked on this thread. I'm seen more than my share of snow this year. Although your scenery is way more picturesque than anything we have around here.

You had more snow than we did. We only got a thin layer; not even enough to cover all the grass

yea, yea, yea...that picture doesn't represent it very well. that's a very short steep climb up from the neuse river. locals around here do call it The Wall, tho, i don't really think of it that way anymore.

Very nice scenery. Snow may be a pain in the ass to live in, but it sure makes everything look nice.

Also, I don't know about the neighbor cat not minding the snow. That's one pissed-off looking cat.

Yeah, that ain't no wall. That looks like a levee.

This is a wall:

Very nice pics. Looks like lots of fun.

I am quite happy for there to be no snow here at the moment.

God I miss snow.
What I really miss is going out for a walk at night when it's snowing and
everything is really quiet and muffled sounding. . .

Nice scenery down there too.

Nice pics. Sometimes I think that standing out in the street when it's silent and there are only a few flakes falling is the most peaceful the world could be at that moment.
