Heh so true, We get a LOT of snow. And my driveway is quite big so it takes forever to do. We have a snowblower though so Dad always does it big_smile Muahah. I love the cold though smile Much more then the heat. BLEH Heat stinks.

Anyway I get the puzzle now XD HAha talk about feeling stupid for not getting that one. It was a good!
