I love things like this Mike. I always say I never believe in a higher power but nature is so beautifully 'designed' it's almost like it's by someone's hand.

Mike C and Jadis. Those were absolutely awesome. Never saw anything like that before. If it's ok, though, I would prefere to keep them on my laptop and not my driveway. lol

lol, cara.... it snowed all day yesterday here.
We are headed to our nephews (lives at the bottom of the hill)...
dad said "I bet if you hit the driveway and make a straight shot, you can get to their house without even needing to push. Bet you'd get there faster than you can load your chair into the van. I have a triangle u can use but I think you might clear 30 mph....but, there is snow on the ground. Maybe we should tie you to your chair so you don't launch."
I told him with all the new snow, I would have natural resistance. ;)

Jadis, hope you made it to your nephews with all that snow. We had the green Christmas that I always wanted. Quite unusual for this part of the country.

we did. I was thankful for being allowed to go in through the garage so I could craw on my hands and knees up carpeted steps! The driveway was a skating rink. We were almost the last to arrive and definitely the first to leave so we didn't stuck there.
