Images of Things to Come - Brrrr!

Cape folks have been sending in pictures to our CSC community mailing list of Cape St. Claire in the winter.  It's the time of year that I first saw and fell in love with the Cape.  They were nice enough to let me share them on the Cape Blogger (thanks Laura and Debbie).  If you click on the Cape Photos tab beneath the big picture, you can take a look and start to think about what might be on the way this year for our little enclave in the way of snowfall.  (Word of the day - enclave - "enclosed territory that is culturally distinct from the foreign territory that surrounds it" or "territory whose geographical boundaries lie entirely within the boundaries of another territory" - I had to look it up to be sure I was using it properly, and I kind of liked the idea of that word to describe our little Cape universe...)

What do you think?  Another record breaking blizzard in store this year?  Who knows.  Has anybody checked an almanac?  While scientific evidence overwhelmingly supports the reality of humankind's effect on the increase in average global temperature, winters like the one we saw last year make me wish it had not been called "global warming".  Americans as a group have a little trouble appreciating certain issues from a "global" perspective.  One winter of heavy snow in our neck of the woods and the theory is clearly disproven.  But I digress...

Feel free to send me any pictures of the Cape you would like posted - bitter cold rebuttals of global warming or otherwise.  Here are a couple I took last year - not from the same storm, though.  Brrrr!!!
