    I posted a similar photo awhile ago, but this one is better. For all of our posts about sailing, snow, lake effect weather, and anything else relating to living in the middle of nowhere, I have indicated the location of my village at the tip of the small red arrow:

    Wow, that's a lot of snow. All I can see is a little blue box - no red arrow, and not even any land contours. ;)

    By this are you suggesting that you can't see the image?

    Yes. :)

    All I can see is what appears to be a teeny tiny tourist information booth.

    I have a red x... does that count... :D

    Although, I will admit... this is my work puter... when I get home many of these little red x thingies appear as images...

    Aha! It's gone now. I wonder what happened?

    Edit: The image on PriusChat went away. I have it fixed, at least for now.

    The resolution is really not that good. There's an insect on one of the shrubs in your front yard but it's impossible to tell what species it is. On the other hand are you sure you want to call attention to what you're doing with those jumper cables and a C-clamp? :p

    I don't have the polarity reversed, do I? I've heard about the cost of reverse jumps.

    Ah, that looks better.

    That's a lot of water. No wonder you have a boat.

    Plus, that must be a Summer picture. The water looks liquid. :)

    Most definitely a summer photo. As for water, Lake Superior is just visible at the top of the photo. There's a lot more water there.
