Mailbox Afro


an image of a snow covered mailbox

20 inches! And it’s not done yet, although it has slowed down considerably since yesterday. This was no surprise storm, as it had been predicted for several days. It’s the first big storm for the ’09 – ’10 winter and it delivered exactly as the forecasters promised – pretty impressive (the storm AND the forecasters)!

This is a shot of the front of the house after it was shoveled for the 3rd time in two days. That’s about a 13″ buildup on top of the mailbox! The city’s snowplows also left me a present this morning, making it more difficult to dig out. That’s a bit unusual for them. They usually plop a pile between my neighbors driveway and mine, but not last night. Oh well, it’s not like I’ve got much else that can get done today anyway.

Sorry about the large gaps between posts. I’m working on some stuff and haven’t gotten around to posting. I’m still taking photo’s though and at some point, some of them will make it onto here.

Photo Deets: 1/500, f5.6, ISO200 @ 10mm, cropped. Overcast conditions and if you look closely you can see it is snowing in the picture.

Until next time,
