o, the weather outside is frightful!

Last Sunday, I saw this as I walked to church:
(that's snow. better seen in real life. but it was falling.)

As we walked back from church, this was the same view from our porch 
(ps - the building on the upper right is our church. it would literally take longer to drive than to walk)

We were happy that it was sticking

So happy that we adopted an old roommate's tradition of "first snow ice cream".
A worthy tradition.

This was my walk to the car for work the next morning. 
Carson had pre-scraped the car. That's it with just a little dusting of icy snow. 

And this was my view as Carson scraped ice off the windshield wipers that evening

The church looked glorious covered in snow

And so did Hillyard, the place we went to get our snow tires put on
(it was below zero this day)

We looked like Rudolph's cousins, but the lighting hid that as we walked frozen streets

And then returned to the tire shop for warmth

The next day, we purchased gas. Carson took this picture to show me how frozen things were.

And as we drove Carson to work, this was an unplowed side street, yesterday
6 inches overnight, snow falling fast after that. 12 or so inches this week.

We followed that up with some grocery shopping. Our car is under there somewhere.
Not really. This is a pile of plowed snow. 
And that's not the moon in the background.

O, the weather outside is frightful
But the fire (or radiator) is so delightful
And since we've no place to go
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
