In 30minutes it will be the day before the first day of winter - I always thought it was always December 21st every year but apparently that is not the case. Just in case you were wondering, however, the first day of winter 2008 will be December 21st. Anyway, the point is that winter has not even begun and we have had snow for at least a week! See a picture of me on this heap of snow that has engulfed this poor car like a giant amoeba. This picture was taken earlier this week and the car has neither moved nor been eaten by the amoeba. Below you can see another picture that my mom made us shiver in place to take the other day.
