As Josh notes, there's a lot of snow 'round these parts.

My sister just headed back outside to shovel her driveway. Last night (after it took way to long to get here from the airport) I joked that I should have bought them a snow blower for giftmas. Except that I really wasn't joking.

I think she's given up on the idea of shoveling the whole thing, instead concentrating on making two large "stripes" where the tires meet the driveway.

Here's another point of view on it:

Compare that ("ice pellets?!?!") with the weather back in California:


On the bright side, I don't have to worry that I'm missing some great wave flying while I'm gone.

Update: Josh has posted some of the snow pictures he took.

Greetings from Florida. It's currently 73F, down from 75F. And this is in Jacksonville, not Miami!

Ice pellets: Sleet? Hail? What kind of language is that? "Water tablets shall fall from the sky!"

I left Western NY for Tahoe. Sometimes I think the weather is bad in Tahoe, but then I remember how bad it was in the Great Lakes area. Repeat after me: Gray and overcast.
