Same here in Cuba, NY! We had Nothing on the ground yesterday and about 45 Degrees. And woke up to this....I think we are up to about 5-6" and 30mph+ winds. Luckily we had today off, ran the snow blower at lest once. Shoveled 2 times so far.

Hey Freddie, I see you are up near my brother, he is Groton.

I didn't think it would get that far that fast, don't worry there is more to come. Colder with more wind & snow all weekend & then another little warm-up again by the beginning of next week.

Fred,
You can have it all.With all this warm weather and ground still soft you may need a truck load of stones for the driveway in the spring.All we had was a dusting and gone by 11 am.

I had a '79 Chevy that I loved. That truck would go through anything and everything. 350, 4 speed, and posi-traction. What a beast. I sold it because it had a bad case of cancer......................should have repaired the cancer (again) and kept it. Bought an '89 Chevy that was no match although it did ride nice. My nephew rolled that one over in a field and it burnt to a crisp. Now I have no truck :cry:

Woke up to -2* this AM but it has quit snowing & the wind has died down so it doesn't feel that cold, then they are calling for 40* tomorrow & mid 40s Tuesday, strange weather for sure.

I had my fill of snow on saturday. Not a flake here at my place since halloween, but I did a trip to niagra falls ny. to pick up a grasshopper diesel mower. Snow from frackville pa. up, not alot just enough to make the going tough. 600 miles round trip is not fun when it snows, I was close to the uae harmony mine and didn't stop :( I was soooooo happy to make it home safe :)
