Rare St. Louis snowfall by XD-385 Rare St. Louis snowfall by XD-385
I took this shot from the second floor of my house during a beautiful snowstorm the likes of which I have not seen in years. It happened about two or three weeks ago. We seldom get enough snow during winter to make it worthwhile anymore, so I made sure to get a shot I could always view whenever I want to see the fluffy white stuff.:snowing:

Really?! Whoa, that's a surprise! If you ever come up here, keep an eye out for me. But if we were to meet, it would be pretty awkward as I have no experience communicating with people who are deaf.

I'll be bringing a notebook, so it's alright~

Unfortunately, I move to New York in the summertime, and there's no plan yet to go back to Illinois anytime before that...

It's even rarer here in Mississippi. It only snows ever 4-7 years here and it rarely last even half the day.

Wow, that's amazing! Although probably not as spectacular as the snowscape on me and my family's drive to my grandparents' in Pennsylvania for Christmas Eve last year. There was a lot more fog than in this picture, although not exactly enough to make driving dangerous. Still, that's nice!

Heh, looks like another first comment (maybe).

Anyways, nice shot. I can't really speak to thinking of snow as particularly rare, since I lived in Utah for a while, and was thoroughly sick of the stuff, but cool beans anyways!
