WINTER has
its own kind of beauty ... and ... provides that survival challenge to keep life
interesting.





Snowplow I USTA BE A SNOWPLOW
DRIVER ... what a rush to send a big rooster-tail plume of snow. If the
snowbanks were really high ... you'd have to go fast enough to send the snow
high, up over the snowbank. One time, I was doing that. The bag of garbage set
up ontop of the snowbank turned out to be a kindergartener waiting for the
school bus! I stopped the plow truck & rushed back to the kid ... but, he
was okay ... just laughing & giggling ... he thought it was
funny!
