oh yuk, Beny. Been there too last week. :cry:

It's still snowing, since Saturday.
We're at nearly 60 cm (2 feet) of snow.

The dog is trying to figure out how to pee uphill.

Where's Spring? or Florida?

Quite mild here Barb.... no snow where I am although they had the white stuff up north. Just a few frosts here and a couple of nights of -5C/23F ...enough to say sayonara to my TRex and Musa leaves. Most plant damage here has been done by the animal kind with deer stripping some of my shrubs and practically wiping out my Graptoveria "Fred Ives" :reindeer:

Wow!

Cold and sunny in OK; OR is warm and wet. I.e., wet from the moisture giving you that snow.

Glad you two are in comfortable weather!

It finally quit snowing.

You should see the streets! :cry: :cry:
Old folks, one with a cane, trying to get over 5 foot tall plowed snowbanks at street corners.
Semi trucks high-centering as they turn onto streets because lanes were plowed too narrowly.

Despite all that, everyone's helping everyone, with smiles all around.
Incredible and wonderful spirit.

Rhetorical Q: why does it take hardship for people to be so helpful?

Here comes the rain :roll:

Stay safe everybody!
