Monday Photo - 2; Aging Snow
When we lived down south, everyone loved it when it snowed. My across-the-street neighbor would stand on her front porch, jump up and down and cheer. Having been raised in a snowy region, I never understood the fascination.
I think this is the difference. There it snows, looks pretty, melts and you are done with it. Here it snows, gets plowed, gets splashed, sticks around till more is added on top, and then as it starts to melt it gets this dirty, cancered look.
So...for all my southern friends, here's some snow for you - what's left of about 25 inches that fell in about 10 days, pushed and plowed, shoved to the side and splashed. You should see what some of the shop parking lots look like! Some of those piles will last till April.
