Not fair, guys. You get all that wonderful white gold. Here in Vermont, our January thaw brought us rain, we lost it all. I've got bare LAWN beside my apartment.

Flatlanders get everything, we just get boned. frown

Great pictures of Gidget in the snow. Her expression looks like she loves it and she is so naturally prepared! We had record snow here in the puget sound area last winter and my two Dobes loved to play in it but for a very short time and then only when dressed in warm jackets.

Fascinating looking at those car less streets that normally have traffic everywhere.

Anyhow, thanks for sharing the pictures.

Brilliant blue skies today -- spectacular! Pedestrians still ruled the road. A few more cars ventured out but even 4x4s are still having trouble if they don't have decent tread.

A friend and I trekked around for five hours. You'd think this was Mayberry the past couple of days. So much friendliness.

Another snowstorm is coming through Tuesday. Forecasts are 4-8."

Some inspired substitutes for gaiters, and some First Amendment expressions in the snow:

It figures that within a month of moving from the D.C. area to the Blue Ridge Highlands in the mountains of Virginia I get less snow. I really like snow. laugh

Lovely photos, Dagny! Just great!

I made a snowman last winter (18" of the dreaded white stuff). Rocks for eyes and smile, carrot nose, stick arms. Then his nose disappeared. La Doglet was crunching it on the back deck.

I'm curious, how is the crime there doing at this time? Less?

Thanks, Sue. It's a photographer's mecca just now.

As for crime... well, I haven't been mugged lately. But I haven't done my taxes yet.

The big scare in our zip code lately is a rash of carjackings and muggings targeting mothers with infants and toddlers.

We're hoping they target a pistol-packing NRA member mother.

Or perhaps the police might catch the perps. Evidently this is gang-related.

Gidget's been dismembering as many snowmen as she can get to. She likes sticks so their arms are irresistable.

She also decapitated this one. I wasn't nimble enough in my snowshoes to stop her.

This snowman was on federal property, so the Gidg is now a fugitive. Mandatory minimums....
