we got our last snowfall a month ago and it's only melted on one side of the street (not my side, either). so anyway my roommate and i were out front to move her car so i could get to work and i said, "wtf, why's their snow gone and not ours??" to which she responded, "the sun hits their yard instead of ours."
it's been so unbelievably cold lately, especially at night. for example, the temperature will be only 7 degrees farenheight come sundown. windchill is likely well below zero. two and a half more months of this! whee.
