Third Snow of the Season Coming Down Steadily
It's so fun to live somewhere where it snows in our back yard three times before Christmas even arrives. The last two times, the snow stayed over a week. Who knows this time - but it's sure coming down hard, and everything is a beautiful winter wonderland. I sure hope after all this snow, we actually have a white Christmas for all our guests coming from far-off places.
On the steep street to which ours connects, there are three speed bumps - normally. However, they recently removed them. I am guessing this is a seasonal thing, allowing for easy plowing of the roads during winter. They are the kind of speed bumps made out of heavy-duty plastic, which they could reapply later. I'll let you know in the spring if they reappear. Many children walk up and down the street to and from school twice daily (going home for lunch in the middle of the day), so I'd be surprised if they didn't put the speed bumps back again for safety, since it is a big hill and could be tempting to zoom down otherwise.
Try telling me the picture of the neighbour's yellow house below doesn't look colorized. Well, that is just how it looks (other than the purple border (a new feature of typepad blogging platform), it's straight out of camera, or SOOC, as my friend Susan says). Imagine how bright it is in sunlight! They are a very friendly, cheerful family :-) Above is Jason's "snow angel" in the driveway - I love it. He said the snow was perfect packing snow. Hopefully we can have a 14-person snowball fight at Christmas, eh, family? :-)

Now (I think) I can comment again.
When I tried before you went back to the old way, something-or-other told me that something-or-other was monitoring my keystrokes, so I didn't try to finish.
