@ehBeth,
I have a version of those. I should dig 'em out.

I used to live in Braintree. If I was still 11 years old, I would wish to be there now.
But I'm not. So I don't.
50 degrees here in Mukilteo.

@neologist,

must not be much fun living in Braintree these days with an untrustworthy red line...

I'd like to go back.

In the summer.

I remember our yard, rental house, in our first years in Chicago. From my older view point, I'd take that matters got to 24 inches and in places much more. I did shovel, to what avail I'm not clear. As I have said here before, I remember ice skating at -7, and we never heard of windchill.

Now - I am an acknowledged idiot re dealing with black ice.

Enough about me.

How are you keeping?

As you might expect; thanks for asking.

This is our back yard. Note the stairs to the deck.

@neologist,
not far from me --- braintree was ugly before this latest snow - I dropped my daughter's friend there last week - they didn't seem to plow so well especially on the smaller streets... this family lives in a hilly neighborhood - I can't imagine driving on those streets now - I will not offer to drive her home again until the summer.

Can we trade? I got a scorching sunburn after an hour at the dog park yesterday. Would love to have some more cold weather come our way, especially if it has water with it.

Per Jimmy Fallon:

Quote:
After the government and most major businesses in Washington, D.C. closed yesterday when four inches of snow covered the ground in their first major snowstorm of the season. Fallon commented:

“It seems like everyone is affected by the snow—in fact schools and federal offices in Washington D.C. were shut down today after the city received four inches of snow in their first major snow storm of the season. Or as Boston residents put it… Are you f***ing kidding me?”

“‘Four inches of snow? I left for work this morning out of a second-story window, cowboy up!’”

Maybe if the federal government had the gumption of half of our commuters, we could actually get something done.

@tsarstepan,
Yeah I saw that - makes me shutter in horror at the thought of ...... SNOW....

Several weeks ago my daughter was playing in a fall softball tournament. I brought her on Sunday and it was probably the coldest Sunday all year. While they were warming up and before the start of the game, I sat in the warm car. My daughter later told me - did you see the snowflakes? There were flakes while we were warming up. I missed them because I was reading in the warm car.

Can't believe it snow flakes.

@ehBeth,
Similar here: one day a bit of snow (and everybody got the winter tyres mounted), then, since three weeks, mildest late summer weather (Last two nights 15°C - that would be even very mild at daytime in November!)
