Here's a pic from Kenosha Pass, it's pretty representative the entire state:

Not that bad here where I live, but it's getting there.

My ISP just came back up. The Internet crashed, the satellite crashed (until I removed all the snow from the dish), the power has been iffy. Luckily, I have a fireplace and a water bed. :D

I guess that fireplace keeps the waterbed from icing over.:eek:

The water bed holds heat for a couple of days if the power goes out (it hasn't yet - completely). Water beds are much maligned but you can't beat them when the heat goes off. :D

I have actually thought about geothermal home heating systems. God help me. :D

My wife and I were looking out the back window and it is a winter wonderland out there. Just like a Thomas Kincade picture!

Well, we're fine this morning. The power is still spotty but it's okay for the moment. I-70 is still shut down. I saw a squirrel fall off the roof so that was pretty cheerful. It's still snowing but it seems to be melting from underneath at about the same rate. :)

It's hard to tell. I had about a foot last night and it snowed most of the night (it's snowing now) but it's also melting about as fast as it's snowing. I'll have to wait for the stats from the Weather Service since I don't have a rain gauge. Usually, I just use a yard stick to figure it out but with this kind of snow, you really need water-related equipment.

Our backyard this morning and it's still coming down.

Those are quite the pictures. I'm having a lovely afternoon listening to Wagner's "Siegfried" live from the Met and watching blooms open before my eyes. Sunny and seventy in the DC area. :D

Can you use a recepie for Seal blubber jerky or Smoked Walrus steaks ?

:mad: :) That doesn't sound too tasty. I have some wonderful Elk summer sausage if you'd like?

We have close to 20" maybe a bit more here in Parker, CO and it is still coming down at a pretty good clip. By the time this storm leave the area, we should get close to 2 feet of this heavy wet snow. I would post a picture, but I don't see any provisions to do that.
