Now that (hopefully) the bulk of the snow season is over for many we better hope that there isn`t a rapid melt or there will be massive flooding.

But like I always say, it could always be worse ... and it usually is! At least the car was out, so it won't cost you anything. On the bright side, you've got plenty of firewood for a summer party! 8-)


Yes, it could have been much worse. I was lucky to get the old truck out before the crash since I use it for trash, mulch, stone and COAL delivery!

Anybody need some beat up corrugated metal sheathing - come and get it!? It'll be here quite a while until I can get a 20 yard rolloff in here for cleanup.

I was raised in Bucks county--& over the years have gone down that way to get away from our outlandish winters up here on the Hill----NOT this year--you guys have been getting what is pretty normal for us---enjoy it----our back pasture butts up to a hellasish hill & the kids used to love it for sledding--picked up a really old 6 foot tobbogan & rebuilt it--they loved it---then they all grew up & moved away :) I wish they would visit when it's haying time,but,they seem to schedule around it :lol:

Our local news called this storm a "snowicaine". That can't be good!
