Vaguely Familiar

This white stuff falling from the sky looks vaguely familiar...

Explanation: It is snowing here. Finally. The last four or five times a "wintry mix" has been in our forecast, I've endured a rainy day while listening to my family (who live a mere 40 miles away) talk about the inches and inches of snow they had. It's 40 miles. How much of a difference can 40 miles make?

And don't even get me started on the great white north that is Poughkeepsie. I think they've been under four feet of snow since November.

Special Blog Bonus: Speaking of snow, this is a great time to point you toward one of the best LEGO creations I've seen in a long time. I present to you, the 5x10 foot Hoth base diorama, LEGO style, complete with little LEGO foot prints in the snow:

It's cold out, but it's not quite "crawl inside the dead carcass of a tauntaun" cold. You can find more photos in this photo stream.

Ha! You kids don't know noth'in.

Don't matter where you live, you got it easy!

When I was a boy, we had real snow! Each snow flake could knock you over.

And we had real wind. Kids brought their lunches to school, carried all their books, gym stuff and extra paraphernalia, just so they wouldn't get blown away! Little kids even formed gangs for protection, clinging to each other for warmth and mass (and everyone loved the fat kid).

And Ice Ages . . . And Glaciers . . . Don’t get me started!
