Everyone else busted your stones pretty well, they did it good enough that I almost don't feel the need. :D

Turn the heat up, brew another pot, dress you and the kid warm and go play.

Snow Angels are something he won't get to make often, same with snowmen and a snowball fight where Dad looses.
Enjoy and let us know what you came up with.

You deserve something for you bragging earlier in the week!

 

We got 2 to 4 inches laying out there.  No real hassle, takes me 30 minutes to get into work on a clear day, took me 45.  I slowed down and just relaxed.  No reason to be in a hasty!

Willie has angered mother nature with that ridiculous mockery he videotaped. The only way to appease her and end this cold white terror is with human sacrifice. Do I hear any volunteers to help me ride over to Willies house and do what must be done?

Naw, I'm thinking a Gravely with a snowblower will move the white stuff just fine.  Besides, its NC, give it a day or three and the snow will be gone and the sun will be shining again.

Willie, I've got a relative in the north Charlotte area reporting from 7-9 inches with more coming down.  Did you get that also

Atlanta did quite well during this winter storm.  We lost power a few times and then for a couple of hours last night.  At least is wasn't like it was a couple of weeks ago with people stuck in their cars on the interstate's.

 

We had a good time this morning with the grand-kids playing in the snow and ice.  But now, I would say, over half of it has melted and most on the trees are gone.  I sure hope that is the last one for the season.

I would say we had about 10 inches. Although it was 45 degrees this afternoon and I was sweating in my long sleeved shirt.

Wow, you were long sleeves when it's 45 degrees?  No wonder you were sweating.

I know. I thought it was colder when I went out. I was wrong.

Well, looks like you made it through the weather in one piece Willie. Good.

It must be a real different experience, getting 10" of snow, when your not use

to it. I hope we weren't to hard on you, about that video. :smilewink:

I sure wish I was in your boots, being able to watch the snow melt away

in a day or 2. We'll probably have snow around on May 1st, there's so much of it.

 

The Great Lakes are at 90% ice coverage. The long term average is 35%. All

that ice will keep the ambient temperature down for a while.

We just have a few spots mainly under the trees that still have snow.  I hear Augusta got it worse then we did.

Gentlemen, I am somewhat mystified.

 

Just what is this "Snow" thing that you speak of?

 

I see nothing like that here:

Now, I did happen to see some big piles of 'white stuff', but I believe the locals call it sand.
