O/T- "It's Snowing in Fairfield County!"....well Ridgefield anyway

All of these photos were taken with a Nikon D50, w/ 18-200mm lens in 'scenery' mode, on manual focus.

Enjoy!....

And more .......










Unfortunately, when you use a host site like photobucket.com, you lose some of the image quality. So some look out of focus.....but it is not my fault! Plus, taking pictures at 5pm, is a little tricky with the shutter speed...

Anywho, hope you enjoyed! Please feel free to comment!

J8851, yeah, I can imagine, my mom was on her way home from work today in our new potential car (05' land crusier) and she had it in four wheel drive all the way home.

P.S. You beat me to posting all my picks!


And an EDIT: HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!

Thanks.

Yeah, it was really annoying. My mom went to pick up our new Toyota Land Cruiser from the Toyota place in Westport, and on her way home she counted about 25 cars that were 'stranded'. It took her 2 hours to drive about 10/15 miles up route 7 which usually takes 1/2 hour.....nasty stuff. And now I am hearing of freezing rain?!?!?!

NICE!!!! That would be awesome but.......we got a REALLY stupid superintendent of schools from Wilton this year, and not getting up early enough, and making safe calls, has already cause a bus crash in the little town of Ridgefield

But now you have my hopes up..........

ahh, i had a nice little adventure last night....

was going down a hill, around 5-10 MPH, started to stop about 50 feet before a stopsign... realized i wasnt slowing down. So i said, ahh 'F' held the wheel and started laughing

bounced off one curb, back to the center of the road, straightened out and stopped perfectly on the line

maybe if the stop sign was on on a major road i would have found less humor in the situation, but it was a good story ahah

Haha, yeah funny

And, yeah, I am sure, had that happen to anyone on a major road, it would probably be very scary.

I was surprised though, because when my mom got home, I went to check out the new Land Cruiser, and she had it in rear wheel drive the entire way home. It must be heavier than I imagined, or she was lying when she said she didn't slide......
