A snowy sidewalk...

...outside one of the buildings in our office complex this morning.

The drive in to work was fine, though (after a final bout of shoveling to clear the 30cm or so ridge the snowplow had left overnight).

In other news, Xtreme English, who lives in the Warshington, Dee Cee area, got her first snowfall today, too!

Being a Minnesotan, she's not much impressed with what Dee Ceeers consider 'school-closin' snow'. Being Canadian (Minnesotans' very, very close first cousins), I hear her.

Speaking of Canada, snow, and all, I am recalling the Canadian sign for "Fargo," where I grew up, and where they have very Canadian-like snows:

Make an "F" (from the ASL manual alphabet) with one hand (thumb and forefinger together, rest of the fingers sticking up). Retaining this shape, move your hand to your right nostril (left one if you're left-handed) and make a twisting motion, as if you were picking a good one. That's "Fargo"...the sign for "Newfie" is similar, I think.

Goddess knows what signs you'll come up with now that the Loonie has outstripped the dollar....

This picture reminds me of my years in Missouri! MO's not that far north but it's far enough west to get the plains-style blizzards. We'd get snow in NC, but sun on snow was a new thing for me - in NC, when the sun hit the stuff, that meant school tomorrow, because bare ground would reappear within hours!
