A Belated Snow Post

What do you know, a new post, not just a recycled one!

Like the rest of the US, we got hit with a ridiculous snow storm the first week of February. I say ridiculous because I haven’t seen snow fall like that since… well, it’s been more than ten years ago and I was in Iowa at the time. Being the chronicler that I am, I felt the need to record the joyous beauty *cough*hack*annoying freezing-ness*cough* that has been February so far.

Walking the dog in the storm:

I tried to upload that one at the time, but alas internet issues meant no could do.

and if that isn’t snowy enough for you, then perhaps you’ll enjoy some….

it speaks for itself

There are lots more boring, snowy photos on my flickr – check the sidebar over there for a link (you may need to scroll) ——–>

And that wraps it up for me. This was pretty darn random, so no random thing.

song playing at the moment – “Want You More” – Crash Parallel (their new album is out! Go check it out!! It’s awesome!!)
