Finally... some SNOW

I think that we've had only 4 inches total of snow so far this year, compared to the 2 feet that we're suppsed to have had by now. Lack of snow is a bad thing for my landscaping. Snow, believe it or not, acts as a nice insulator. Without the snowcover, the frost goes deep into the ground when you have the bone-chilling sub-zero highs like we had last week. I don't want to see how many of my landscaping bushes, or the tulips my wife planted in the fall decide not to sprout this spring.
I feel bad for Raleigh, NC. Looks like the whole city was shut down yesterday by a mere inch of snow. Amazing... well, maybe not so when you consider that they don't have the sanding or salt trucks that we do up here (nor do they really need them.)
I'm not going to be able to enjoy the snow for that long though. I'm heading out to Denver on Sunday to write the Solaris 10 Certification Exams. Denver was 70 yesterday! (Which accoring to the Weather Channel was a record.)
