Roads are clogged with almost a foot of snow, and a gazillion downed powerlines and trees. My street is impassible. Power lines and phone lines are down everywhere.

Heres 4 pics. If you don't hear from me until spring, at least theres photo proof. :)

All taken at 2:30am, no flash. Goddess I love this camera :)

Iso 1600 digital film, F4.5 f-stop, and a 4 second exposure. :D

Longer the lens is open, the more light hits the film, the brighter the exposure is.

Lovely pics, Wish we had some snow here.
Lovely for you I'm sure but for those of us who live in typically harsh winter environments (during the right season) those kind of pictures mean a pain in the butt/**** as far as transportation, communications, and just generally staying warm for as cheap as possible.

Try it sometime... :D

I agree the novelty would wear of quite quickly, It sure looks lovely though, especially those lovely photos Bob took.:)

Oooof---looks like you folks might be in for a bad one this season---had friends in Buffalo for a while and every few years it got to look like your pics there, but not usually this early in the season... has the river started to freeze yet?

Hope you guys get a nice warm clipper coming in to melt it all---sometimes central Oh. gets to look like that and it's a bloody disaster...

Great pics Bob!

As far as the snow goes, I'm sorry you are getting hit so hard, but better you than me! Even better would be Lisa though!

Lisa gets hammered enough in the winter as it is! On the BC coast, when you wanted to say that a winter day was awful, you'd say it was like Edmonton, but if it was really awful---not just supercold but supercold and damp, ninth-circle-of-hell type cold---it was a day in Winnipeg...

Of course, the spoiled brats in Lotus-land were complaining about 4 degrees C. when they started moaning like that... probably still do...
