A blizzard hit last night (it was forecasted) and is still "raging". I90 is closed from Wall South Dakota thru half of Wyoming. The only door to the house I can currently open is the garage door (power!) - so the next time I go down to the garage (first time I've ever had a garage!!!!! :clap: ), I'll take the camera and see if I can't get a couple pics. I can't take pics thru the windows of the house, since they are covered with ice & blown snow. :D

Some areas have gotten close to 3 feet last I heard (without the drifting)... I heard that we're around a foot (without the drifting). I love it!!!!

I hope the enemy doesn't attack while you are goofing off.

If you get attacked - divert them this way... We'll let MammaNature take care of 'em. :D

I posted a picture in another thread from KELO TV that showed the blizzard watch west river and a tornado watch east river.

Awesome.

It's been in the 70s and 80s and I was starting to get worried about getting the yard cut (my ankle isn't quite ready for yard work yet). Now, I at least get a few days of grace!

Yeah... :( Computer Genius I'm not. Hopefully using the wrong icon won't get me banned. :doh!:

Don't think for a second that your grass isn't going to grow with snow on the ground.

I missed that thread - Sorry! This may sound just sooooo wrong - but it's thrilling that we are getting slammed with the blizzard. I mean the weather guys here NEVER get it right - and they've been forecasting this to start on Friday for a few days. AMAZING - They got it RIGHT!!!!!!

But neither I or the assinine nosy bitch from the homeowners association can see it!

It is going to grow like mad next week though... it's supposed to be warm & sunny.

Misc = ? Is there a different icon you were wanting?

On a side note, all icons are up for improvement if anyone has any better ideas.

I don't know... lol .... I'm still not familiar with them. But I did read a post/thread talking about banishing threads without them - so I didn't want THAT to be the reason to be ignored or banished. :D

Eh, it's no big deal. You have to choose one for your thread, just to keep things organized, but they're just meant to be loose categories for topics. No one's going to go nuts if you didn't pick the best category out there or anything.

As often as weather is discussed on this board maybe a weather icon is needed.

I'll have to take some more when the wind finally dies down. It's been announced on the news that anyone out driving around without a 4x4 will be ticketed (in Rapid City) and in Spearfish - only emergency workers/road crews are allowed on the roads.

See the gap in the fence in the first pic of #35? There's supposed to be a fence there. :( I can only hope that the panel is buried under the snow and not in Nebraska somewhere.
