    The only thing that could've made it better would be if you had actually opened

    You see how the snow looks dirty and dark ? That is typical of this type of
    picture taken on automatic settings. The camera metering thought that there
    was much more light than there actually was and underexposed them. A light
    meter is the best way out of this problem.

    Doesn't the camera have one of those?

    Fred. You must come from an area where heavy snowfalls are uncommon.

    Here in Winnipeg, such an event would be characterized as nothing more than
    a "heavy snowfall" - something we typically deal with several times a year.
    Our blizzards can dump a meter of snow, or more (sometimes, much more)! We
    also get 100km/h+ winds and temperatures as low as -40C. Get all of that in
    combination _THEN_ you've got a real "Blizzard"!

    Would you be interested in some tourist information about Winnipeg? :)

    FWIW, we haven't had a real blizzard in several years. We are waaaay
    overdue. When the next one hits, I'll be sure to get some snaps for you.

    Hey Rob...

    I have some pics of the last huge one... November of '86
    if you'd like to see some. Portage and perimeter area.

    Take care.

    I live on Long Island. That snowstorm was on my birthday. I ended up
    snowthrowing my driveway as my father sat inside sipping Chardonnay. Then
    after 15 minutes, my snowthrower sucked up a paving brick and died.
    So...thanks for dredging up painful memories, Fred. (sigh)

    My dog has bad memories of it too.

  10. Out here in Manorville we all have bad memories of last winter. Now I'm
    ready for a fight, just itching to take my brand new 27" snowthrower out for
    a ride.
