That’s Not a Snow, This is a Snow!

If you’ve ever seen Crocodile Dundee remember the line, “That’s not a knife, this is a knife!” The clip will refresh your memory.

I laughed when I read about the Russian diplomats poking Americans for shutting down the entire federal government in Washington, DC because of snow. They commented that it wasn’t a hurricane or a tornado, just snow. How could we be so flummoxed by a bit a snow?

The following photos show some serious snows that the rest of the world endures. The Swiss folks in this house can honestly say they are snowed in…

Unlike this dog, who is definitely snowed out.

I’m working on some solar power projects right now, but I don’t think we are considering the contingency below.

The following photos from Norilsk, Russia show why it’s considered the World Capital of Snow.


Thanks to Lex Pelger for passing along this Dark Roasted Blend site of great snow photos.

And finally, we have a public works idea for lowering the unemployment rate.

Hope you have a wonderful day.
