Burning Bush

  • Sara

    Damn. And B-E-AUTIFUL bush, by the way. I miss the snow.

  • Whoopsie

    Our snow is on the way…beautiful pic

  • Sara

    OMG! Am I first?!

  • Meekazan

    first? no way…

  • Andrea

    That picture just creeps me out.

    Very, very cool though.

  • Brenda


  • Lori

    I wish we had that much snow. In St. Louis it’s rarely that fluffy.

    I will refrain from political or sexual commentary…

  • Cheryl

    How I miss the snow… Moving from Jersey to Georgia has made me realize how much I do miss it… Wait– did I really just say that?

  • Meekazan

    oops… the game, it sucked me in, and yet I failed. I resisted sooo long.

    Yikes. I will keep my rain.

    i like that kind of snow when I’m inside, not walking in it!

    Does Leta like the snow? Has she played in it yet?

    Pretty. Like a princess. Maybe even prettier.

    i wasn’t sure what that was from the thumbnail. afraid to guess.

    love snowy mornings – as long as i don’t have to be out in them!

  • lady

    The mini picture looked like a decaying molar.

  • trudie

    remind me again why we moved back to sc, the land of NO SNOW, from pa? just a note for later–sand toys are awesome in the snow for digging, shaping and whatever, but they are also brightly colored and nearly impossible to loose!

    Damn, wish he had snow too. LUCKY you

    SNOW! That’s serious. Hope you are all keeping warm and dry…

  • Sasha

    Wow! Gorgeous picture.

    What is wrong with you people? Snow can be quite beautiful, yes–but it’s something to visit, not live with. That’s why I’m moving back to the California Central Coast as soon as I finish grad school back here in central Pa.

  • Carrs

    if you ever get chuck to stop licking the couch, can post how you did it?

    I live on the south coast of England – if we had that much snow everything would come to a stand still!! No one would go to work or school and the government would probably have to announce a state of national emergency.
    We are wimps.

  • http://www.nytechguys.com/~captain/blog/index.html Brian

    Really nice looking shot! I know that by the end of the day I’m sure to see snow covered bushes too.
    But Im with Becky, Im all for waking up to a snow blanketed world, just as long as I dont have to deal with it. :-D

    [btw… woot for the top 25

    lovely! how much snow have you gotten thus far this winter? baltimore’s been snowless…methinks this some kind of cosmic compensation for the high murder rate and failing economy.

    baltimore: you might get shot or live in squalor, but the weather’s FINE. huzzah!

    All you people who are jealous of the snow are welcome to come shovel the “white pestilence from the sky” out of my driveway. Feh! Once it gets too cold to run naked through the front yard, my year is essentially ruined. Uh, but the neighbors are elated.

  • BarefootGoddess

    It’s pretty to look at, but makes me happy for our 70 degrees, even if it is raining.

  • http://heypaulsblog.blogspot.com John

    “white pestilence from the sky” — i like that

  • http://karinka1.blogspot.com karinka

    It looks like a cotton plant.

  • beachgal

    How pretty! I’m one of the transplanted PA folks down here in SC and lemme tell, I DON’T MISS SNOW!!!! Not one little bit. I do think it can be pretty, but I don’t want none ’round here.

  • http://raisingchooks.typepad.com David

    Either sunshine or snow please. It’s the bits inbetween that are yucky.
    I’m English and I think I’ve just found out the reason why I left the country…

  • annelise

    sure, it looks pretty now, but wait until february…

  • http://bleeblahblog.blogspot.com Shmee

    That is a stunning shot. The thumbnail made me think of blubber, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Here in Ottawa, Canada, we had a snowfall like that a few days ago, but it just doesn’t look the same when it’s not fresh. Today, we are enjoying -18 degree celsius weather (which I think is just below 0 degrees fahrenheit). It’s going to take something momentous to get my ass out of the house.

  • Melanie S

    Damn all of you to hell with your snow, and the flaunting of the snow. I’m in Dallas and it’s going to be 70 friggin’ degrees today. Last week we had Ice on our cars everyday. Stupid snow flaunters!

  • annelise

    shmee – hey, i’m in montreal and not much snow yet, but damn it’s cold here! nothing pretty like that bush…

    Hey, look! A crack tree!

    I’m in Texas also (outside of Waco) and snow like that would close the schools and give me a day off of work…it’s raining here- it’s going to be 68 today.

    Beautiful picture

    even though it’s really pretty ‘n all i’m glad we haven’t gotten any snow yet. snow sucks when you have to ride your bike to work. but only four more days at work for me and then i’m on my way over the big water to the midwest and it’d be nice to have a white christmas in IN/OH this year ;o) happy nikolaus to you all..

  • beachgal

    Oh, my guess from the thumbnail? Another ceramic atrocity.

  • http://angoras.blogspot.com/ TracyDee

    I’m jealous… all we get is rain. Rain, rain, rain. More rain coming tonight.

  • http://www.commuterchaos.com Kieran

    I am not ready for snow just yet! Nothing is worse then walking in manhattan in a foot of snow!

    Dooce, Hope you’re back home safe and sound. : )

    That picture kind of creeps me out. It looks so soulless.

    I’m in small town Texas. If we get snow or freezing rain or any hint thereof, it’s State Law that everyone must, in one panic-induced mob, storm the local stores and buy canned goods, flashlights and batteries. Then we all drive like idiots…some of us at 5 mph and others at 50. (No one in Texas knows how to drive on slick pavement.) Then we hole up in our houses and pray for the second coming. We Texans are fun that way.

    what beautiful snow. we rarely get snow here in dublin. sometimes i wish i didn’t live in a maritime climate. no extremes. neither of cold nor of heat.

  • http://www.agirlcalledjames.blogspot.com James

    I really enjoy the contrast in that pic. Thank you for sharing it.

    Nice picture. I also wanted to make sure you know about this new form of dog torture I discovered over the weekend. Put trouser socks on all of your dog’s stinky feet. I’m sure many people have done this before, but I was amazed at how entertaining it was!! I also like to put a sock on her snout, but she pulls it right off.

    goodness. we rarely get snow like that in oklahoma. great shot!

  • http://www.livejournal.com/users/ranazer ranae

    i’m jealous of your beautiful snow – i live in the mountains – i should have snow, but alas just drippy drizzle and mud.

    what’s on your christmas list dooce?

    That is really beautiful. It has been too warm here in Chicago for anything but rain. And LOTS of it.
