    Rain here, followed by more rain, with some rain after that. Even so, we are still one inch behind normal for this point in the season (starts in July -- we are at 21.5"). Today might bring us up to normal.

    On pronouncing names -- in New Zealand and Australia I had lots of people telling me I mis-pronounced my own name . I pronounce Vaughn, "von". But then I have always mis-pronounced my sister's name, too. It is Wende, but I say "Windy", which considering how she can talk and talk and talk -- is rather accurate. "Wende" is a German last name -- but no one in our family has ever pronounced the "W" as a "V"!
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Well, in shifts, I have shoveled 14" thus far. Most alarming, I shoveled three inches that had accumalated in the space of just over one hour and it is getting heavy. Another eight hours to go. I think it's now time to retreat to the porch and leave the carport to God and the snow angels.
    Thank you.

    Oh, and by the way, Steve, there's got to be a hill near you somewhere or a slow moving SUV on which to grab the bumper and go for a ride. ;p Sorry you haven't made it out yet.
    Thank you.

    I dug around the car this afternoon. About an hour ago, it stopped snowing so I brushed of the last of it. The snow plow was stuck at the beginning of the parking lot for a while and left. The driver promised that he would have the lot done tonight.

    Yeah, I'm dug out to my deep - not-so-recently plowed street. We got just over 20" over here in DE all told.
    Thank you.

    Goodness. You guys are all done shoveling, and I'm just starting to wonder where I parked my car, and did the city plow any side streets? Its going to be a couple of days before Phila gets moving again.

    I went out after dark this evening and shot 10 sheets of whole plate TMY. Got some (I hope) great shots of street scenes in the snow, with the neon lights from stores and restaurants, vehicle lights, and street lights. I'm going to soup them tomorrow right after I shovel my steps.

    I would be very happy if the moderators would change the title of this thread!

    After all, they are superheroes! Why can't they correct such a simple goof?

    Well, the accumulation down here was pretty disappointing, our last few hours of precip was in the form of sleet and we wound up with no more than a foot or so total by the time it all packed down. All in all, the storm of a weeks ago was more of an adventure. Oh well.

    Hey look here Mr. That title is indicative of my deepest foibles. Those being utterly and innanely human. ;p Hiya Ron. Actually I really learned alot about new decades and high falutin' crap like that which I would not have learned if I had not started this thread with such a screwed up title.

    Hey, it's me! ;p
    Thank you.
