Another Snowstorm.

A decently sized snowstorm hit us over the latter part of this past weekend. I haven't taken any official measurements yet (it only really stopped snowing just now), but my guess would be 15+ inches. Yesterday, we went out on a hike on a backtrail in our neighborhood during the peak of the storm. It was snowing really, really hard. If you looked down the street, you couldn't see more than 50 yards in front of you. It was that heavy. It was so heavy in fact, that St. Paul (only 10 minutes away) recorded THUNDER snow (you can see it here). Unfortunately, I didn't (couldn't) bring my camera with me during the hike because of my memory card problem, but when we got home, I found out I could actually take 3 to 4 pictures from my camera's internal memory (happiness!). That's when I took these photos:

This photo reminds me of some 1940's Nazi general standing out in the snow. Just give him a machine gun, and the picture will be complete. :P

As the title states, I have a problem. What is this problem? Well, it has something to do with my camera. Well, not my camera specifically, but my camera's memory card. In short, I lost it. In other words, I can't find it. Basically, I misplaced it. What does this mean? This means that I CAN'T TAKE ANY PICTURES. This is bad. Well, I could always go buy another one, I suppose, but money is tight. Basically, I am in a different picture taking crisis than the one I was in a month ago (which I have escaped from, for the most part). I plan on replacing it sometime in the near future, preferably before springs comes around (officially). But in the meantime, I'm going to "resolve" this issue (not really though), by just posting a bunch of pictures that I don't think I've posted to this blog yet, that I thought you all might enjoy (...and cross my fingers that my memory card will turn up somewhere soon!). :)


I would enjoy knowing which ones are your favorite, if you have any! :)
