White Out

I stuck my hand and camera out the front door for a shot of what's going on here this evening. Rain all day followed by snow all night, accompanied by an insane wind. You can barely see the street between us and the house across the street. This is why I'm retiring to Palm Springs at the first available opportunity.

Yes, I know some people like snow for Christmas. I am not one of them. Plus it's enough ice and snow and wind that if you're not already out of here, you're not going. So much for your white Christmas.

Also, a tip for you: Do not reach out and around to your windshield and try to grab your wiper. Yes, you can pull it up and let it slam back and that will get rid of some of the ice. You can also just break the whole blade off, then you get to drive home from across town without it.

Ha, David, tell me you didn't break your wiper arm off. I'm voting with you against freezing cold weather on Xmas. Having grown up in Phoenix I just don't get the charm and seriously suspect there isn't anything at all magical about snow (with ice and slush) anytime.

Hey Decorina, Merry Christmas!

I did. Not the arm, but the part that holds the wiper blade. So stupid. But we just went slow and made it home fine.

It was, crazy and I was not going to drive to our huge Family get together ,so my son in law came and picked me up. On the way home we had to stop twice to get the ice off the blades. I love a white Xmas, just do not want to be out driving in it! Then I want it to go away real soon!
Happy Holidays!

Cool pic, David. Sorry your weather is so rough up there. It was just right here in TX: snow fell Christmas Eve and stopped by 9 p.m., was still all white and pretty outside this morning. Bright and sunny today, it'll all be gone by tomorrow. Perfect.

Oh well, hope your day was good anyway!

Living just south of you, we had the same only not so much! And although everyone yearns for a "white Christmas" . . . too much snow and ice is "not a good thing"! The snow wrecked havoc on travel plans and many family Christmases were "messed up"!

This is my first visit but I'll be back since you're a "neighbor"!
