A day late posting this, but this is what is looks like outside my doors:
2 foot icicles
Snow up to our knees
Yes, it is finally winter after fall has already enjoyed dumping about 2 feet of snow since Thanksgiving, or before? I can't remember. It's all running together for me here. Aside from not being able to see when I pull out of my driveway and slogging through slush to do errands, I'd say it would be perfect for cross country skiing, if only I knew where my skies were!
