    You have my sympathies ... we go clear, but decidedly chilly (low teens and single-digits Fahrenheit) , tomorrow, for the rest of the week.

    Believe me, this is no "POTD", more of compare and contrast. I may have deep depth of field, but you have depth of SNOW. You win! Enjoy the prize!

    I had a look at those images Steve, looks like you Guys in the Midwest are taking a pounding.

    Serves you right. Nah, not really LOL, we're taking the medicine here in the UK as well.

    This November has been a record breaker for both the highest Nov Temp (19C in St James Park) and the lowest -18C (here in Wales).
    The middle of November saw heavy rain and flash flooding in the South West and the end of the month saw the most significant spell of November snow since 1965 causing widespread transport disruption with 400 lorries trapped on the M25 in Surrey overnight, difficult driving conditions and road closures elsewhere, Gatwick and Edinburgh airports closed and rail service delays and cancellations.

    December continues in the same vein with heavy snow in the North and temps down as low as -21C. Several feet of snow in places has brought more widespread transport disruption with cars and lorries trapped overnight, motorway closures, airport closures, shops running short of supplies and most of the schools closed. The general chaos in the North has precipitated (pun intended) the resignation of the Scottish Minister for Roads&Transport.

    Elsewhere has been a mixed picture with most places getting snow but where I am on the Severn Estuary we have escaped with very little although friends only 10 miles away have been bogged down by a couple of feet of the white stuff.

    We simply don't have the infrastructure in terms of Snowploughs, Gritters, Blowers etc. that they have in the colder parts of Europe to cope with unusual amounts of snow. If this weather is a sign of things to come, we will have to make some big investments in spite of the current austerity measures.

    We have had a brief respite from the cold as the winds turned westerly to blow in off the Atlantic. Unfortunately, a cold front is now moving north to south and the rapid invasion of Arctic air behind means a significant risk of black ice and significant snow is possible. So it looks like more of the same for a while.

    BRRRRRR!!!

    And of course now...it is so cold -15 that the freeways that are plowed get iced over from car exhaust moisture so drivers are crashing like bumper cars out there...

    Thumbs up Warming it up

    After putting up with a wall that let the fumes from the garage on the opposite side seep in, for far too many years ... down it came, vapor-sealing went in, new insulation, and a new pop-out added for the fireplace, we decided to eliminate the old lime stone and brick hearth and with the entire wall rebuilt, we rebuilt the fireplace with granite, took the wall-to-wall carpeting out and went with a oriental we inherited on the original wooden flooring.

    VIOLA!

    @ 24mm - f/6.3 - 1/10 sec. - ISO-200 - Manual - Flash (ceiling bounce) - Handheld - CWA metering

    Wall decoration will begin ... soon.

    Of course, the custom surround is still missing, as it ships out tomorrow, but will not make it for Christmas (there goes the manger scene location). Still, the whole thing looks rather modern, as it is.

    This image made my day and warmed my ... hearth.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
