  2. Everyone has an opinion!

    We have half a meter of snow left.

  3. Ah, it does look SO cold, Merisi!! Beautiful, but cold!! We actually have a little sun today!!! Hooray!! Have a great weekend and stay warm!!

  4. At some point, the depth of the snow becomes so overwhelming and ridiculous that despair turns to laughter. Maniacal laughter, but laughter nonetheless.
