Deja vu?

Okay, the weathermen better stop saying that the almost record snow we had last year couldn't happen twice in a row. I think Mother Nature is taking that commentary as a personal challenge to see if we can break the old record. Today we received 11.5 inches of snow in Oshkosh. It wasn't really bad shovelling it, but I must confess we had help from the nice neighbor guy, Scott, who dug out the driveway and shovelled the front walk. Paulette and I both called in to work today because of the snow. It was a fun day, except for the shovelling part. I got to button hole #2 on my right sweater front. Yippee.

Here are pictures:

Here's a picture of Mother Nature's good start to try and beat last winter's tunnel of snow in the driveway. That picture is from February 2008. The snow in this picture looks eerily similar--and it's only December. Yikes.

Here's the start of one of the giant snowpiles at the end of the driveway. How big will it get this year?

I gotta go now-the dryer is calling me and that means my Christmas jammies are dry. I want to put them on and knit some more. More from snowland soon......

HAHA.....the snow at the end of my driveway looks almost the same....At least I had Scott and Scotty to help me shovel or I would still be out there..( Dan is layed up till the end of the week) Be careful shoveling...don't have a hernia!....

Thanks for reminding me how lucky we are in Colorado. We "only" got 8 inches last week, and another 2 on Monday night. Just typical. Hang in there!
