Beer Run in the Snow

Chris and I. looking for any excuse to get out in the snow, decided to walk down to our neighborhood Food Lion and buy some beer for the winter storm. When we got there, of course, they were closed but fortunately we had foreseen the problem and had a plan. We stood at their locked door and complained loudly that they were closed when we needed them. That was our plan. It went perfectly. After executing our plan (flawlessly) we decided to wander aimlessly around the shopping center (our new plan) and we discovered that the drug store was open and sold beer. Huzzah!
On the way back to the house we were passed by a number of snow plows. I really wanted a photo of myself with a snowplow in the background. But the first one passed before I could get out my camera...
... and so did the second...
... so I gave up on the self-portrait angle and snapped this shot ...
... and got a serious face full of snow as the plow went past .
It was a bit like losing a snowball fight with Optimus Prime.
It's been a long time since I have had an icicle growing on my hat. Marvelous. I do like a bit of winter weather in my winter.
