So in honor of our beautiful, warm, snow-less, el Nina winter, I'll show you pictures from last year's horrible winter. The misery cannot be contained in these images. Just trust me, may I never see that much snow again, ever.
It was actually scary, like it would never stop snowing. And when would it ever melt? I remember in March when it was warm enough that the snow started melting all night long. Joy!
Driving was a nightmare. Multiple-lane roads became single-lane. Pulling out of a shopping center became dangerous because snow piles were over ten feet high and you couldn't see the traffic. One night coming home from work I couldn't find a street that my car was capable of driving on. I kept driving around until I found a suitable route to my street. One morning I went flying off the icy stone step of my front porch and smacked my shoulders and back. I couldn't have company until March because my street had become so very narrow that there was nowhere to park.
Look at the size of this icicle!
