It's a blessing to have great neighbors, it looks like we did get a slight dusting back home. :shock:

I just peeked in the attic of my shop, there is a 2' snow drift in there!! I can't believe the wind blew that much snow through the soffit vents. Guess I will be hauling it out in a few pails.

That's not just snow, it's added traction. :D

Around here they leave the beds full for as long as there's snow on the ground so that the rear wheels grip better. ;)

Tried posting last night but the Board was having none of it. Bottom Line : The Weather worsened as We returned Home from Our Clearfield,PA. Campout. Rolled right into Whiteouts and a minty fresh 40 mph push at times. The Ohio White was alot more than anything that touched Us from Stella. Our target areas along the Coast didn't get creamed,so We were released.

I never have a problem when an Out of Town Trip turns into a bust. All that means is that Folks aren't going through a tougher than normal time with no power. Generators cost a buttload of cash,and so does the gas to run them. For me,sometimes it's just kinda' nice to be the knuckledragger that gets the lights on.

For those of You still struggling with the March in January's clothing,stand fast,stand tall,but please,take care of that Heart and know when to stand down.......

I just finished snow blowing my way in the driveway about an hour ago. I was working during the storm or more like paid to sit around during the storm. Momma was pissed at being snowed in, and then she has the nerve to give me *censored* about not being home and digging her ass out. Now if I wanted someone to come home and dig me out I would be sweet talking my ass off but not women, and talking to other guys at work they all report similar stories.

How does the story go? God made women so man would not be lonely and after he saw what he had done he gave us beer. :beer: :cheers:

Bright and sunny today, but we started at 6 degrees this morning. Much of the secondary roads have quite a snowpack.

I have really chewed through some coal in the last 3 weeks.

Im glad Im not the only one, I was starting to wonder if I had a problem. We ended up with about 32" but with the sun yesterday and today the roads will be bare. The poor Robins though :cry:

Found my station wagon yesterday. Luckily it was still attached to that tiny piece of side mirror that was all that was sticking out of the windward side of a 7 foot high snow mound/drift. Took an hour to shovel it out and clear it off. :cry:

I wonder how well autonomous (driverless) vehicles will be handling blizzard type snow storms. Can't wait for them to be everywhere. Specially the big rigs. :roll:
