let winter finally arrive

Officially this is the third snowfall of the year. Officially. I wouldn't know anything about that, having been out of state for all the others.
And that picture is misleading, since it was taken at the start of the snow, in the end we got something around 8". And we learned something about our beloved Hybrid.... high torque electric engines, plus low rolling resistance tires, equals mostly useless in powder. We almost didn't make it up the hill to the house when there was about 4" of pretty much virgin powder on the road. Needless to say, the next trip out was made in the 4wd pickup, with sand bags in bed.
