First Snow of 2007

Yesterday it snowed for the first time this winter. And it snowed a lot.
There was so much snow, that my friend who lives in Heidelberg, who left home at 7.00 in the morning, didn't get to work until 3.00 in the afternoon. It is normally a little over an hour to drive. On the radio, the traffic annoucements took 5 minutes or more to read, when normally it is about 30 seconds.

After work, I took a few pictures of the snow, but only from my balcony. I wasn't in the mood to deal with it "in the wild".

I really like the icicles on this one.

The glow of the cranes through the trees is nice.

We had quite the drift on our balcony.

And finally, our Ikea fiber-optic lights in the flower boxes looked really cool.
