Just came in from a two hour "get the road open" to street. Been warm here the last two weeks so most of the other 2' of snow from the '13 blizzard was gone and the ground is warm, so this new foot of the white is real wet, and the ground is soft which makes it act like a Oct. snow fall, not really fun to play in but it looks pretty, :D Looks like another week before I'll be able to start cutting trees up from the last big storm now.001.JPG 002.JPG 003.JPG

I know how you feel John.  I went out this afternoon and cleared the driveway because it was getting pretty deep, and I thought it was almost over. Snow's still coming down at a good clip.  More darn branches to get off the lawn now.   never ends !  I drove the Hsqvaran straight into the shed, now watch us get another 10"  !!  lol

I'll take all the snow you want to ship south, John !! We haven't had crap for snow. There is still a slight hope, but the odds are growing against it.

Your neighbor, no not TH, Mike (Bosox) sent me a text message today asking me to come plow his snow, cause he's over it already.

March is not my favorite month either. I got off easyy this week, but it is supose to start raining here tonight and rain through Sunday night. Temps hover aroud the freezing point and can go fromm rain to sleet to snow in just a few degrees.

We got 5"+ out of a predicted possible 9" and as things have been going lately that's a decent percentage.  AND it didn't turn to rain!:D  We only lost 2 big white pine limbs in the wind and only one of those hit the house so all in all it's been an acceptable "Frozen Precipitation Event 'Saturn'".  I hope the stormy trend continues and we get storms all the way past Uranus!:D
