Snow Days

Postby Eyes High » 17 Feb 2010 00:51

Didn't know if I should place this here or in members' gallery so if it should be moved feel free to do so Freak or whoever else has the power to do so.

Many of us have mentioned the below normal cold weather some of us have experienced this year.

If you have pics of your winter wonderland, how about sharing them.
This last snow we received on February 12th, only lasted for a day and a half but it was the good kind of snow...no ice mixed up in it like it was back in January. Here are a few. (I posted more over at Worm's if anyone is interested it's (on the second page))

The beginning of the snow that night. Side view of one of the bird houses of course.

Warmest winter in a long time here in the Great NW, but here's an Xmas Day pic from mom's patio in Port Townsend, WA (where Herbert built his 'Ecological Demonstration Project' home and lived for several years) ... there's snow over there in the Cascades! ;)

Great pics! All the snow has gone from southern England, it's a bright sunny winter's day here.

It's probably snowing in Scotland, Inhuien can post some pics of snow-covered abandoned shopping trolleys and burnt out cars. :D

(Didn't you post a pic of yourself with him before, at a museum or something?)


Snowed in again, here. :shock:

Classes are done, fortunately, so I can just call this a "work at home" and go in tomorrow. :P

Will post pix once I download them from the camera.

The NE once again is getting the snow that was supposed to fall on Vancouver in addition to its usual Narnian winters. I'll post a pic or two tomorrow.

Right when Van needs the snow too, those poor bastards, bad timing. :lol: Oh well, we shouldn't have been doing the Olympics anyways, moronic waste of money. Fun though.

This was Sunday ... and the best part was that it snowed for another nine hours after I took this shot:

I think the small plug goes in the camera, and the big plug goes in the computer.

Actually, I have a rechargeable battery-with-USB-connector-stand thingy on the desktop; I just can't be fooked to turn it on and go through the motions.

So nyah! :P

Maybe one of those wireless chargers (Powermat?) would be worth looking into. Then you don't have to remember where you put all your cords and what goes to what, and you can focus more on which ones are best for erotic autoasphyxiation.
