PostBy: Devil505 On: Mon Mar 02, 2009 1:28 pm

Just came in from shoveling & it's pretty miserable out! Snow just ended but it's windy & 26* here. We only got about 4" but it's heavy/wet stuff & no matter which way my snow blower was blowing....it blew back into my face! :mad:
Forecast is for cold all week!

I ran the snow blower for about an hour and need to go outside and clean the cars. The biggest problem is I live on the "wrong" side of the street so I get all the plowed snow. I have two feet of compacted snow about three feet wide in front of my house.

The snow has ended in Northern VA, too. We got about 6 inches on top of some ice - light powdery stuff. For all the advanced warning they did a crummy job on the roads. I had to take my husband to the train station. I was able to get out of the neighborhood but when I hit the main drags we were going no where. There were these guys in a 4X4 who didn't understand that zero traction is zero traction and zero times anything is still zero - a 4X4 doesn't help on ice. Their pretty little 4x4 isn't so pretty about now. It's about 25* now with an overnight forecast of the low teens. That's the same for the rest of the week.

My stove is working smoother with the barro. I noticed the after barro pipe temperature is about 150* lower then the stove top; a vast improvement to my no barro days. The 150* difference is finding its way into the room and not up the pipe. It allows me to run the stove cooler; not burn so much coal. Still, I may have to make a coal run toward the first of next week. I figure I have 26 heating days left in March and probably 6 or 7 in APR. I'm short a couple of bags but I don't know just how much a difference the barro is going to make in stretching how far the coal goes. I should know that by the weekend.

Enjoy the weather, Lisa

10" - 12" around here, its hard to tell because the wind is blowing it so much. Just came in after shoveling some more. After doing the walkways here and at the neighbors, I just have the deck left to clear off, thanks to "Mr. neighbor with the snow plow" the driveway is cleared !!! :D :D

I'm the next county west of Titlest and we only got about 5"-6". The bulk of the storm tracked to our east, thankfully.

Devil, your going soft! :shock:
We got about 7 to 8" VERY light powdery snow. I used the frontend loader to make a BIG pile in the front yard, so the kids can play. No school! Whooo! Whoooo!

Now you tell me!!!! :mad:

Looks like we hit the jackpot on this one. Got an easy foot of the stuff. Not to bad to deal with, dry and powdery. All cleaned up by 11:AM. Hope that's the last of it for the winter.
