        Haven't had snow here in Middle Alabama in over 2 years and it's rare that it actually sticks. Click link below for a photo that I shot about half an hour ago. I told the birds to thank Al for their predicament. lol

            I thought about it, but my lazy self said the snow's too wet. lol

            Your not going to believe it, but it's still snowing pretty consistent (looks like around 2 inches of accummulation). Still 34ºF so it's hard to believe you can have so much snow and have it be so warm. The birds are going stircrazy outside too. When I opened the front door (just a few minutes ago), all I heard was bird chirping. The feeders pretty much full so they aren't starving, but still. Fly South; it's Winter don't you know. lol

                Nah; it finally stopped yesterday early evening and today, it's pretty much gone. My Dad and I did drive around and I did take a few Snowman pics around the neighborhood. He also made me make a snowman with some left over snow afterall (found orange and blue bag ties which, of course are AU colors; Warrr Eagleee; didn't find a hat, so just took a cobblestone and placed it on top) . lol

                    Thanks Palms. Click on the link below (1.45MBytes) is a contact sheet of all the snowmen (and family for some) that I took during my drive around the neighborhood with Dad (as well as the one that I, with lot's of hardship created).

                        PLUS almost the same situation in four other pile-ups close by, and we are accustomed to driving in snow!

                        P.S
                        Me thinks that is the smallest snowman I have ever seen!! Nice work!!

                          It's a shame that there still are idiots who think that they can drive in the snow OB; I was one of them a few years back when I lived in the Atlanta, GA area. Fortunately, when I skidded, I did not hit another object or car; took a few minutes to get traction and continue (I definitely was an idiot) to my destination (should of went straight back home). Luckily, for me, no other incident happened. I still remind myself of that incident whenever I think I need to drive in the snow (haven't since; fortunately we just don't get that much snow where I live in Alabama).

                            nice pics, lyle

                            we've had more snow this year than the last 10 combined here in western ky. i grew up in michigan and learned to drive there so what we get here in ky. is usually a joke. but, and this always cracks me up, they close everything here in ky. if they get so much as a flurry. in mich, as kids, we would stand outside and pray to the snow gods to give us tons so we didnt have to go to school. those damn bus drivers could drive in blizzards and a foot of snow on the ground was nothing. lol. we had very few snow days back then

                            what was the most fun, though, in mich, was taking your car out on a lake and driving on ice. now that was fun!

                              That fourth picture is horrifying.

                              Yup, it's the same with me. Grew up in Indiana where they were prepared for and used to heavy snow. In Holland everybody just stays home when it snows because it melts immediately. Of course this year DH got to introduce DS to turning 'doughnuts' ...

                                it's been a long, cold, wet, snowy, icy winter this year here in western kentucky and surrrounding areas. there's still a tiny bit of snow on the ground from where it had drifted, but it's almost gone now. the weather finally got over 40 degrees and is expected to hit 50 by the weekend! but, what was...

                                Living in the LA area we get to enjoy a view of the snow without having to worry about shoveling sidewalks and sliding around the icy roads.

                                Here are a few of my recent shots of the snow-covered San Gabriel Mountains from a safe and green distance (the first two panos were created from...
