Winter Blues


It really does not snow that much in CT, actually the annoying snow or sleet for an inch or two, which makes the roads slippery. Of course, the state and local authorities mix sand with the snow melt stuff, so your vehicles look dirty. If you want snow, here is a tip: Take your vehicle to the car wash and make it look pretty. It will snow the next day, and they will put sand on the road and your car is filthy again...I am attaching pictures of the infamous blizzard of Feb. 5-7, 1978. Thirty inches in East Hartford, Check our driveway and we kids all shoveled Les Alps along the driveway. The rescued vehicle is an AMC Hornet (remember those clunkers?). The only redeeming feature here is the sky, which is never bluer or more beautiful than the day after the snow stopped. The gorgeous sky is the only reward you will receive after this much snow...

Looking at the photos, I just wanted to jump into the snow; after donning the proper snow attire, of course:~)

I just can't handle snow anymore. I grew up in it, and lived in Chicago for many years, but for the past 12 have lived in southern CA and now my blood has thinned out. nice pics tho~
