    This time of year, my brother keeps his beer in the garage. No fridge necessary.

    I remember coming home and skiing at Buck Hill in Burnsville, it was snowing like crazy, we hit the Steak & Ale by I-35 for a few cold ones, barely made it home. Once we got off the main road it was not possible to drive home, so we parked in an office parking lot close to home and trudged across the tundra and made it back to the house. Next morning my brother and I had to go back and rescue the car and it looked a whole lot like this picture. Gainesville never tasted so good than that day! :D

    30+ and sunny today so what did we do? Head north! Went to get my wife a pair of moose-skin boots that can only be had in Ely. And to my delight, on the way out of town I found a bottle of Blanton's at the local shop. Blanton's!

    Not much of a whiskey drinker, but that's a pretty bottle.

    Ooofff!

    We don't have snow like that in this relatively warm valley west of the Rockies, but I remember some hellacious storms when we lived on Chicago's north shore and upstate Connecticut.

    Most times any snow that falls here can be swept off with a broom, but right after we moved into this house last year we had several inches to deal with. Our unmet - at the time - next door neighbor came over with his snowblower and cleaned our driveway. Good people.

    I heard they got 3 feet in a short period of time. Having gotten 2' back at Thanksgiving, I can almost empathize. That's just a ridiculous snow fall in your pictures. I don't know how cold they stay up there, but we often remain below freezing until mid/late March. With that, the accumulations are extraordinary and it becomes hard to find places to move it to. Parking lots all have snow mountains, some 20+ feet high. He have one on campus that's usually about 30'. o_O
