Windsor Has Snow!

This morning, the residents of Windsor awoke to a pretty decent snowfall for a change. I couldn't help but smile a little as I looked out the front window while enjoying my hot cup of tea. Afterward, I got into my parka and boots, and went to the garage to pull out the snowblower for the first time this year. It had a flat tire, and that meant, getting out the air compressor as well, to inflate it. After taking a little sandpaper to the spark plug, and adding a little fresh gas, that old blower fired right up on the second pull of the chord. So, it was today, and it was a fun change from the usual routine, in my opinion. There are probably lots who would disagree in this city, as snow is something that just should not happen here. Anyway, the white stuff was very wet and heavy as wet cement almost, according to my friend Frank, who sent along this picture for me to check out. The snow has rolled over off of the rail, and is hanging there like it is made of foam insulation, or something. Thanks for permission to use this photo Frank, as I did not take any pictures at all today. I was too exhausted after blowing out two other driveways besides my own. Guess I'm getting soft in my old retirement years eh?......Ooops! The snow plough just went by and filled in the end of my driveway. Guess my work isn't quite done just yet..........
