The Sixth Day of Duckmas 2008 / Snowmageddon!

On the sixth day of Duckmas, Wonderduck gave to me...

...a Santaduck in a blizzard!
...a Santaduck at the mallllllllll...
...a snowboarding duckie...
...Rudolph the Red Nosed Reinduck...
...two snowducks...
...and a duckie in a fir tree!

Yep, Snowmageddon has come back to Duckford.  Duck U. is closed today due to the weather, and the weather nabobs are saying that when it's all over, we'll have about 10 to 12 inches of snow on the ground... and I believe it.  There's an awful lot of the white stuff out there, and you can see how hard it's coming down in the picture, which was taken just a handful of minutes ago. 

Snow Day!

UPDATE 12noon:  The snow appears to have stopped.  I just got back in from cleaning off the Duckmobile.  Good packing snow, fluffy but damp.  While there was maybe nine inches stacked on every horizontal surface, it just fell off the car when I prodded it with a snowbrush.  Easy!  The big dustpan made short work of the white stuff piled around the car, too.  Of course, I'll have to dig out an egress when the snowplow comes through the parking lot, but I can live with that.  It's a Snow Day, after all!  They're just as nice as an adult as they were when you were a kid...

1 If it's "fluffy but damp" then you better shovel it sooner rather than later. Later it'll turn to ice.

2 Yes, quite true, but I've done all I can do until the snowplow comes around.  It'll leave a foot high pile of snow behind my car, no matter how much I shovel now.

Oh my goodness...that's a bunch of snow.

Glad to hear you got a snow day!  :-)
