I know the feeling well Mike. I put low lying decorations in my front yard one time and it was one time too many!

The snowfall amount was over 17 inches in the one day. It was the 5th highest "single" snowfall ever recorded here. Plus the winds were gusting up to 40-50 mph, so the drifting was insane. Between all that, and then shoveling the sidewalk on top of it, we have about 3-4 feet of snow across the entire yard. No way the lights in the middle of the yard are getting dug out until SPRING! The good news is that it's rare for us to have that much snow before Christmas, so I will not be deterred. I will do it again next year!!

This was a pic I posted when I first started putting up the outside stuff. I had added several pieces (in the yard) since this pic, that you can no longer see anyway.

Wow, Mike that's a whole lot of snow! Too bad for your decorations. I'll hope that the snow melts just enough to expose them again.

I dug out a little bit. YES...I'm still turning the lights on because I still have lights on the house that show fine. I will take a pic this evening (if I remember) and post what it looks like with the snow. Should be interesting since it will probably be snowing pretty heavy again this evening!!!

Here's a pic I took last night after clearing a bit. NOTE: I added the blue spiral tree on top of the snow last week as a show of defiance after the last HUGE snowstorm.

Looks cool Mike :elf3: Reminds me of my younger days.I was born and raised in Canton Ohio 50 miles south of lake Erie in the snow belt.25 years of northern winters was enough for me.I think I'll stay in Texas:elf1:

A true home town hero and Hall of Famer. The only think that would improve his story is if he would have played for the Browns instead of the Vikes:elf1:

True...although up in this neck of the woods, it's not a green Christmas. It's more like a brown Christmas. :sad elf:

I want to resurrect this thread NEXT November. It's official, 2010 is the snowiest December in Minnesota history! It can't possibly happen again next year...can it?

It's snowing right now. We went over 50 inches of snow already this winter. UGH!!! I have already bought so many new things to display outside for 2011, I pray this doesn't happen again!!!

We're having a very snowy winter here as well! I think we are close to 4 feet - very unusual for the greater NYC area!

Even NYC is seeing colder temps and more snow than usual...what's going on here?!

Just like at the South - that should tell you something is not quite right!

Global warming. People often assume that simply means the temp is warmer. Actually, it means more radical shifts in weather patterns (both warm AND cold...as well as precipitation, flooding, tornados, etc...) I really don't understand how so many people can still turn a blind eye to the world around us, and what we are doing to it.
