So, never say never...
Alan, that is amazing and the photo is so beautiful!!

P.S. Just BBQ'd Black Angus burgers on the back patio - our little snow from a few days ago is gone.
UncleMick, enjoy your SS, and as for the Saints, there's always next year. Personally I think there will be plenty of SS for all of us, as promised. But the dollars we get from SS may be worth half what we expect by the time we get them.

Alan, you are so lucky to still have your snow. Our snow is gone, like UncleMick's - - in fact, it was gone yesterday afternoon because the temperature went up. We were not released from work to play in it, though I did sneak out on break and walked in it a little before it was completely melted. The huge flakes falling silently but heavily all about me gave me an enhanced appreciation of the three dimensionality of our atmosphere. What an experience.
Happily retired since 2009, at age 61.

Sorry to be the snow Scrooge here, but I moved to Hawaii with the expectation that I will never see snow again - unless I fly over Haleakala or the Big Island. Maybe i'll eventually miss snow, but I think it will be when h*ll freezes over before I do. Being from the midwest, I think of snow as an annoyance rather than something beautiful. And, if it starts out beautiful, it sure isn't within a day or two after the road crews work their magic.

I have to admit that snow in the rockies (say from the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, CO) is absolutely breathtaking. If I ever have the urge to "visit" snow, I might head back there to get my requisite fill. Other than that... You can have my share!

Bah! Humbug!!
