After having 2 snowstorms in the last 2 weekends it was time to dig out my old truck. I don't run it hardly at all in the winter but I like to have it dug out and ready to go in case I need to haul something. It's an old Chevy one ton quad cab with a topper on it and there was a lot of snow on top. I had just taken snow off the house roof with my snow rake and thought that might work well for cleaning all the snow off of the truck. It worked pretty well!

I'll add a couple more snow pictures just for you guys that haven't had the chance to play in the white stuff yet.

And it reminds me that I have to get up on the roof and clean out the rain gutters.

Looks like my Big Green Truck. Mine was so rusted that the police politely (they kept their weapons holstered) suggested that I not drive it anymore, not even just to get to a field where the dog could steer, so I drove it to the wrecker this fall. Two days later a farmer I know called to see if he could buy it for use around the farm. I would have given it to him for free had I known...I'd offered it to him a couple of years ago.
