The pure, unadulterated snowfall!
Snowmen - they were adorned and dressed, but I removed that before they melted all the way!
These pictures show why the minivan was left at home for several days. Each time we ventured up or down the famed Harding Rd (in the 4wd truck) with its hairpin turns, there was a new set of auto casualties. With a ditch and rock wall on one side, and guardrail and cliff on the other, there is little margin for error. The wrecked cars added to the problem by squeezing traffic down to one lane in parts.
