Let It Snow

So we went from 60* to having one inch or more on the ground! This was completely unexpected so the region is in chaos - more so then normal. It's not particularly cold so it will be gone by morning - maybe...

We are all home and the Haman is humming away. It's a nice place to be. Stay warm, take care, Lisa

Hi Lisa,
It sure has been a weird 2011. 2 unprecedented week-long blackouts; there is still debris all over town here from the Halloween snow disaster. The town told everybody if they put their tree debris up to 4" on the side of the road, they would remove it. Not so far. Six foot high piles of neatly arranged branches still all over the place! If it snows nobody will be able to touch them until spring.
I'm happy that I'm ready for snow, just tried out my old tractor/plow setup and it looks like it's working well. I just shoved some tree debris into the woods and knocked down my pile of coal ash!
After all my work and effort putting the plow together---- watch it not snow this year! :)

We had snow in october on haloween , and haven't had any since. I never saw a snow in october before. I figured it would be a bad season, but we have been lucky so far. But I think the snow will come :mad:

YAY!! Sussex County, NJ has more RAIN!!! YAY!!! Oh, and I'm without power AGAIN!! JCP&L says power should be restored by 0830. OOOOOKKKKKKKKK.....lemme just add the usual 4-8 hours to that and we're good to go. If it goes any more past say, 1500 then we'll have to add another 24 hours to their "time" :roll: :bang: Of course, there is the off chance that power will actually be restored at 0830....LMFAOROFL!! Not likely.

What's worse, I'm an idiot and didn't change the oil in my generator since the last 144 hours of not having power for six days. Good thing I'm running synthetic. Looks like I'll be changing the oil tonight after work, in the rain. YAY!!

I swear, they should just rename NJ to New Seattle and then declare it a third world country. Becuase, that's what it is.

If that oil has been changed a couple times since the generator was new...I'd let it ride.

Yeah, it was changed just before the flooding caused by hurricane Irene and tropical storm Lee. That's when I switched to synthetic oil. I just topped it off this morning and fired it up.
