USCO's

USCO's (similar to UFO's) are Unidentified Snow Covered Objects. I have a few pictures to prove my sightings.

I believe this may be a pick up truck - make and model undetermined.

A Suburban? It's possible.

This doesn't officially qualify as a USCO since it is identifiable.

A parking lot full of USCO's. Obviously no one was interested in wading out to check the make or models....There was also a motorhome and four more cars parked in this spot.

That yellow school bus picture reminds me of the "Into the Wild" movie (book) by Jon Krakauer! Wow, can't believe all the snow.

I don't think I have ever seen cars or trucks almost completely covered by snow, wow! I like the USCO. That's funny.

I am glad you're up for our little exchange. I hope you like the scarf and hat set. This will be fun!

Oh what fun the kids must have had and you watching them! Have to say that as much as I enjoyed my 80-degree day today, I do miss the snow.
I've never seen the USCO term but had to laugh. One of my favorite memories (not my parents') was us kids tunneling out to the buried cars after a blizzard. I'm sure it wasn't fun for the adults but that blizzard hit the day before we were supposed to go back to school after the holidays and we had another week off! Do the kids use cardboard for any of their sledding? We used to live across the street from the end of the airport on E 15th--we had "flying saucers" and used to go down the hill until our legs couldn't carry us back up.

Vicki - I think I know where you mean. I lived on Juneau near 15th at one time a long time ago. At the end of Merrill Field near where you did. Glad to remind you of some good memories!
