Picture this, Its -5 here. with a wind chill of -17 And its time to bring in wood for the stove. witch is your only source of heat. But your under a blanket. nice and warm, looking out into the darkness! Wondering if the ice is safe for fishing. Then you remember you have to get up and have to be dressed arctic style to bring in wood. Then you head for the door. And all the While the dog is laughing! And you think, what are you laughing at. You poop out side!

Hope you get over that soon! The tractors will feel neglected!

Erie Pa. area sure got a nice dump. 60" over the past few days. That'll keep them out of trouble.

Not a bit of snow here in the mountains of Virginia. I'm thinking about driving north with the snowblower to FIND some snow!

 

On another note (like karel), I was getting sick of having to go outside to bring in wood several times a day.I mounted some rear york rake tines on a garden cart, built a ramp the back door, and solved that problem fast!

I grew up in New England.  I am familiar with what it takes to heat a house with wood.  NOT FUN!  We averaged about 40" of snow a year in central CT.  Here in the Lake Norman area, north of Charlotte, N.C. we get about 6" per year.   Seems we get snow while I am at work, 50% of the time, streets are usually cleared by Mother Nature before I can get to it.
