All across the country this winter, bloggers across the country have been talking about how Al Gore keeps crapping on them, or about the Global Warming they’ve had to shovel or drive through.
This is only the second significant snowfall that I’ve seen in the 15 or so years that I’ve lived here.
Of course, my definition of “significant” is significantly different than the local’s definition of “significant”.
I tried to stitch together a panorama from the beach, but the wind was too strong so the series of pictures I took was too unstable for my stitching software to do it’s trick. I’ll try to do one manually when I’ve got the time.
This doesn’t surprise me overly considering that snow is not a normal occurrence here. I will say that traction wasn’t too bad (I did discover that my autolocking hubs aren’t working, I had to lock them manually) because the snow is fresh and there’s no ice underneath so lack of plowing hasn’t been much of a factor yet.
We’ll see what it’s like if we actually get the 12″ they are predicting.
Also, generally when it snows here it’s barely below freezing so, during the day, a layer of slush forms, then at night it freezes solid so morning driving may be tantamount to the ice capades.
I may venture out again later (maybe tomorrow) if we actually do get our foot of snow and get some more pictures.
And the dogs think it’s pretty cool to play in too.
