That bottom picture is awesome! I've lived where the plowed-out tunnels would dwarf the vehicles, but nothing like that picture! Where's it from, Richard?!

We get the ice storms here in the Ozarks, and they're devastating. And because of the porous nature of the rock around here, there are often enormous icicles hanging right off the rock bluff walls (like where it's been blasted out to build roads).

eeek, it is cold here and we have had some snow, but nothing to match that. Nonetheless, I am over winter already. Not good, since it has barely started.

I need to move to Florida.

Shanny, a friend told me that bottom pic was taken in Japan. I was surprised to hear that.

That IS surprising! Then again, I guess northern Japan is right up there in the latitudes with Russia & North Korea . . .

I know the Akita dogs come from Japan & they're really cold weather dogs.

Man it's 16 degrees here... Just came from a friends wedding. I think we got 3-4 inches of snow while I was inside... Had to drive the bride and groom home.. it was slippery... Sooo tired of the people on the road who think they are superman. You might be superman but go do it in another lane or better yet find a ditch.

I had a wreck in 1972 caused by someone who did not have snow tires and there was snow on the roads. I ran off the road and totaled my car, they were stuck in the snow. By the time police arrived they dot unstuck and left the scane, even though they knew I left the road to keep from hitting them. I went down the hill. Totaled my car but I was OK.
