(Toledo, OH) This is the latest installment in my live driveway coverage of the Blizzard of 2007. At the moment I think we have between six and seven inches of snow, and the howling winds are definitely blowing the snow around.
In this first picture, I used the flash and tripod, and the snowflakes look thicker and more numerous than they really are.
In the second picture I killed the flash, but kept the tripod. This gives you a better view of the current conditions, in case you live far away, or you are too lazy to walk away from the Internet and see for yourself.
Hello, by the way, to the many hundreds of people around the globe who have been searching for information about the Blizzard of 2007. On a normal day there are 200-300 visitors to this site, but I must be filling an incredible blog void, because my traffic has more than tripled since I started blogging about the Blizzard of 2007 and added a few hyperlinked texts using the phrase "Blizzard of 2007".
This, of course, as compared to a book review I might write for this blog, which could entail 10-15 hours worth of reading and writing and generate, oh, ten visitors a month.
But hey: it's the virtual marketplace of ideas, dude, and millions more people are interested in frozen precipitation than, say, in Vasco da Gama or the Russian multiethnic empire.
