Snow. We've had a ton of it and more is coming. And I mean a ton! While the quantity may match the snows we had back in upstate New York, the quality is a whole different matter! Here it is wet and heavy. You can get a hernia, or worse, trying to shovel it. The snow blower doesn't put out the rooster tail it would with powder, but more like sludge being flushed from a drain pipe.
Lots of photos are being posted so I thought I'd put up a few of my own. The first one is to show how hard the wind blows on the prairie. Look at the angle of those icicles! The other two represent quantity and beauty. It is, after all, winter in northern Idaho.
