We managed to dig the cars out, sort of. But not the entire driveway. There's still heaps of it out there, but we're exhausted.

I don't know there that photo is of the doorway, but we're not that bad. It's up to just under the doorknob I'd say.

Since when did simple storms get names?

It used to be "STORM WATCH.... 2013."

Of course, since Global Warming is now in full force, it's critical for the media to draw attention to anything out of the ordinary.

The question is, do you folks continue to ride your bikes? I used to live in Minneapolis, and rode a bike all through the winter, every winter. When I first arrived there, in the fall, colleagues at work asked me how I was going to get to work in the winter, but after the first heavy snowfall, I was the only one who showed up. All those with cars had to wait for the streets to be plowed.

Sure, when conditions are decent. My favorite winter riding is on the MB with studded tires. What often happens around the southern coast of Maine is we get snow, it warms up or rains a bit and then freezes hard. Trails that people walked, skied or snowshoed on become perfect for riding. Snowmobile trails work well too. I've had a few good ice rides this winter prior to this storm. now it's all about skiing.
