Wish You Were Here

We interrupt the regularly scheduled content on this blog for a brief update on the blizzard. We have about 28 inches (they're now saying) 33 inches of snow on the ground at our house, with drifts of four to six feet (mostly in our driveway).

I know this is probably just business as usual for Darren or Clarence, but for me (and Bud), this is a little more than we are used to on the front range of Colorado. Let me give you some perspective on this picture. Even though on the Internet I'm about 6' 2", 180 lbs, and am often mistaken for Brad Pitt, in real life (and this picture), I'm 5'7", 135 lbs, and often mistaken for a hard-working high school teacher. At the moment, this hard-working high school teacher is a little tired of shoveling . . .


  1. Hello
    I am hosting an online project called Scenes of the Season.....and can I grab your photos to add to our bubble share account??

    Looks so wonderful --
    I am in Sunny (but cold) Southern California with NO snow in site.


  2. Our shoveling's all done. I hope yours is, too.
    I'm not sure, after all the shoveling and snowblowing I did today, if I can get up out of this chair that I'm in. Parts are starting to lock up on me.

    Hope y'all are well.

  3. Those of us stuck in the gray, rain soaked Midwest are envious. Envious enough that I'd be willing to shovel 2 feet of snow if it meant a white Christmas and cross-country skiing! I hope the snow packs well and snowmen fill your yard...

  4. I would have thought that folks out there would get a 27" tow-stage snowblower on their 12th birthday - a right of passage sort of thing. :-)
