Looking thru some photos taken last summer and came across this photo of Marie.
She was in the process of cleaning brush from behind the propane tank.

This is how that propane tank looks today.
I figure there is about three feet of snow in the back yard right now.
Seams like summer will never come again.

I hear ya Ray. I have plowed and blown snow about 8 times this winter. Usually it's about 3 maybe 4 max.   Hope you and Marie are doing well.      Roger.

I like the first pic a bunch better than that second one. Looks like she was having a great time.

We are on the home stretch now!!

Another few weeks and we will all be complaining that we have too much grass to cut and it's too darn hot!

I can't wait to do exactly that!

Doesn't look like spring is getting any closer in this area. Weatherman is talking about Sub Zero weather for the next 2 weeks with wind chills at 20 below zero for a few days in the next few days here in the midwest.

This is not normal for March We are usually in the 40's days and 20's at night. Mountains of snow in this area however I suspect that when the weather breaks that it will melt quickly.

The cost of energy is going sky high, Gasoline and Propane are getting almost unaffordable.

We're the same way. Huge snow piles everywhere, and those 2 mini thaws we had didn't

knock them down much. I'm worried that there will be some serious flooding going

on, if we get a sudden 3 or 4 day rain event in 2 weeks from now. This cold spell coming

is going to drive frost into the culverts, and back up all the drainage.

Now is the time to check your basement sump pumps guys. We're going to need them.

The creeks and drainage were overflowing on the back roads around brave pa heading towards Waynesburg pa. Several areas along those country roads I drove through water running across the road from one backed up ditch to the other.

It's gonna be a mess if we get a bunch of rain.

That storm is now heading for us I believe.  8 to 10.....Can't take much more of this.  I am going to just hide under the blankets in my shoe box sized apartment this weekend.

Our weather is starting to get a little warmer and the snow has packed down.
I went out and checked the propane tank today and was able to walk out on top of all that snow and stood on top of the tank to read the fuel gauge.
 
You can just see the green tank cap sticking up out of the snow.

Geez, that's still a lot of snow. If you'd have fallen thru the hard stuff, would they have found you before spring? :D

Yep...I get feeling the same way, too, and I don't haven't had near as much of the white stuff as you.
That must be your R/T home-made tractor in the summer picture.... very nice!!! Calls to mind an old Case, or maybe a Farmall. Did you post about it's construction elsewhere in the forum?
