Hope its not too cold; it can spoil the surprise and beauty of such a snow-though you could dress in multiple layers as you load 7 or 8 hundred pounds of sand in the back of your pickup, a twelve-pack on the seat next to you, a tow-chain on the floorboard and your best gal ridin' shotgun, ready to pull out the less fortunate stuck in the drifts, not a cop in sight...you're in your own little snow world, hee-hee, a real snow bandit!
Yeah, we're a bit simple here.
Have a ball, Bill, and Merry Christmas!

And blessings to all.

Beautiful picture!

I wrote a global-warming-senruy, but my wife said me not to send it, but next year perhaps.

Well, tikkis, you're closer to Copenhagen than I am.
