I personally love the snow. I am an obsessive/compulsive show shoveler too, I don't know, it's therapeutic or something ... although 10 foot drifts are a little daunting! Speaking of ... it's supposed to snow a few inches tonight. Looking good for a white Christmas!

Have a grateful Christmas Eve everyone!!



I guess we have the compulsive snow shoveler syndrome because i also enjoy a good shovel. Nothing like hearing a pin drop three miles away and ice frozen in your beard making you look like you just walked in from the north pole.

It doesn't snow (or even frost) here. The worst snow event I have ever been in was spring tour 93, the blizzard that cancelled the show at Ritchfield. Oh, and crossing the Rockies to get to Durango. I don't know what pass we were on but my oh my , we were lucky to get through that alive in one piece

Wolf Creek Pass? That is some scary shit in a blizzard. I went to school in Durango so drove that way a lot. Remember begging the state patrol to let me through because as I was pulling up to the start of the pass they were closing the gate to shut the highway down. The snow was almost knee deep on the road, the street signs on the sides of the road totally buried in what had to be 8 foot drifts ... took all night to get over that pass. Most snow in Colorado every year right there on Wolf Creek..

^^^This may well be the only day of the year seeing that picture doesn't make me overly jealous, Island Head.

We got an unexpected 3 inches (on top of ice) yesterday evening, and it's still a white Christmas out there today. It was terrifying driving last night, with spin outs everywhere, but we made it. Now it's just covering all the trees and is so pretty to look at while sipping hot cider!

I'm not sure which one it was, I was driving my little car and had 3 of my friends with me, they fell asleep. The more I drove the more scary it was, there wasn't a gate, but there were blinking lights on a sign that said "road closed". My friend woke up said it would be ok and fell asleep. I was moving about 3 yards a minute, couldn't see nothing, lost control multiple times, almost went off the side of the mountain a few times going down. It took all night and all morning to drive that. Really scary.
