Had enough of the white stuff, 9 inches of heavy wet snow Friday, bad enough that they sent us home from work at 3:30 instead of 6, and then 3 more inches last night.
Saturday spent a good part of the day shoveling both sides and getting 2-4 inches of ice off the front porch roof. Had to get roofs down as now they are forcasting freezing rain changing to all rain for tomorrow!! As you can see we have no place left to put the snow. Banks are high enough that the snow blower can't get up and over so I'm hand shoveling!! Come on spring!!

Not much room left there. The rain you mentioned may help lower the banks some....... Stay dry.

Now I know where our snow went LOL.

Hopefully the rain helps eliminate some of the snow banks.

I am with you in wishing winter was over! Our winter started real early with over 18 inches of snow in November in one storm! Set a record for the total amount of snow in November. We had a couple of other heavy snows this winter also. Now to look forward to March which is usually our snowiest month. It is nice the days are getting longer and the sun is getting more powerful all the time but still most people around here have had more than enough of winter and looking forward to spring.

We got alot of 3'' storms this year. Really nothing big like the 12'' we usually get at one time.

Wow powerking56! That one pile to the left of the garage will probably still be melting in June! That's probably about what we'd have here except that ours melted off twice...just in time to snow the next day! Hope the weather breaks soon for you guys.

I have had enough snow. Good thing the Kohler's keep running great. I am looking forward to fishing without having to put a hole in the ice.

Hope you don't get any more, that's a lot of snow!

I'm almost hoping for a cold snap, no more snow, just cold. What we had, is melting/melted and we are ankle deep in mud in places.

I got one more chance to check the snowblower after I put the new belt on, now I'm ready for next winter when it comes.
