Is There Snow Where You Are?

Here's the view out my window yesterday morning about 11 a.m. As you can see, the ground is pretty much bare, the roads certainly are, just the odd bit of snowbank residue to remind us that we some snow a while ago. What you can't tell from the photo is that there was a bit of a windchill going on, it was probably about minus fifteen Celsius at the time.
By contrast, you may have heard that a few areas in the U.S. Northeast got some snow over the past two days. "Snowmageddon", President Obama jokingly called it. My friend Heather in Virginia sent me these photos. This first one is what her backyard looked like yesterday morning around the time I took the above photo, after they'd had the first day of snow on Friday:

Here's the same swing after the second day of snow:

Wow, that's a lot of snow, isn't it??!!! It sure is pretty though.
