I plowed snow today

I plowed a bunch of wet snow Sunday that had been frozen too solid but now that we are getting it again can't (or won't since it would be in the dark) plow again until the weekend. I just can't bring myself to plow snow at night.

 

 The woodchuck is about to tell us our future, but no matter what he says I still have work to do. Maybe the little bugger can plan a tan or put on his work clothes for the next six weeks.

I'm ready to wear a t-shirt---wait I would settle for a jacket without a hood over my head for a few days. Had about 4 almost decent days last week but the wind was awful.

 

I've just had too much going on with Dad's health to have any ambitions other than trying to retain what's left of my sanity.  I hope to someday return to "normal".  Until then, I try to help here when I can.

Hope all will be well Daniel, I haven't had the time or been too whipped to keep up with the sticky threads real well.

I don't have any more gts right now plus with moving I don't have space or time between work school and trying to keep the two vehicles going. But this Phoenix weather is really nice right now tomorrow's high of 70.

Tractor time is exactly what is needed there. Unless it froze up like that?

This would take more tractor then I have. This stuff is like foam and sinks about 2 feet. About 300 feet of road. Put 40 tons of #2 on it last year and no sight of it. I have filled holes with full 8 inch blocks and no sign of the blocks. Hard as cement when dry but when it is wet. Used a dozer on it several times and cut it down to rock and built back with gravel. Not sure what else to do.

I heard last summer that Puxa-what-y Phil dies of old age. Whoever this new kid is, he's a phony.
