There's No Place Like Gnome For the Holidays

Here in the Binghamton area of upstate New York, we got about seven inches (18 cm) of snow on Saturday.  For some, it puts us in the holiday spirit.  For others (like me) it puts me in the mood to utter words that can't be reprinted in this blog. I'll really get into that feeling when I head out to work tomorrow morning and find myself navigating the not-always-exactly-cleaned off sidewalks.

Thankfully, my spouse was able to clean off our walks and driveway all right - the snow, thankfully, was not heavy.

On the other hand, winter weather can be beautiful.

I blogged earlier this year about a little "gnome house" someone in Binghamton erected on a tree on their property.  Now, it's been decked out for the holidays.

Someone parked yesterday in a supermarket parking lot in Johnson City has really gotten into the spirit of Christmas. (the white dots are falling snowflakes).
I took this picture yesterday in Westover, near Binghamton.
And this is what those bushes looked like this morning.

It's beginning to look a lot like...well you know.

More later this week.
