No snow here, but it was 19 when we butchered 2 pigs!!  Helped keep the stink down and no flys to deal with.

Well, it turned out to be about 6 inches (easy boys!) of the heaviest, wettest snow ever. All blown out and now waiting for the temps. to drop and turn everything into a skating rink out there. Still, not much of a big deal at all but at least the snow blower got some exercise.... and I only broke one shear bolt (less than average).

Currently -15. This whole winter thing has lost its appeal.

So sick of it all. I am in New Haven CT for the week. Snow everywhere. Monday and Wednesday dumps. The noreaster planned for Sunday seems to have vanished. Good news. My wife is home in Maine taking care of the snowblowwing for me. What a great woman. Lets spring in to spring already.

Lost?

I can't say it ever had any appeal...

5* THIS A.M.
The storm dumped about 15 inches @ my house about 4 miles from the shore of Lake Erie over it's course, bringing my backyard total around 20 inches in the middle, drifting, and blowing mostly during the day yesterday.

pretty much the lake is frozen, all except about a mile off shore north of me, which feeds the lake effect snow machine..... ::)

4 inches of snow and a quarter inch of ice made it a bit interesting yesterday coming home from Logan to Cleveland. Used to all amounts of snow but ice is a game changer for me. Coming off the mountain 5 miles down an unplowed dirt road with a 100 ft drop off and no guardrail was a pucker factor of 10 even though I have snow tires on all 4 corners.  ;D
