    Warmed to 30, snowing pretty good. Plowed the DrWy once, will need it again.
    Went to sweep the deck, 30° snow is not powder fluffy stuff, broom handle broke. :(
    Warm spell & snow is nice, but to be clear & in the zero & less range again by Tuesday.
    Don't think our snow will melt until April, may get blown away , but not melt.
    So when I see all yuns pictures with green grass, some envy. :)

    WOW
    You didn't even get time to pick up the leaves. Looks like they are coming down now.
    Winter is coming to a location near you.

    Yeah Dennis, and doing our own shoveling and plowing!
    It's coming, although this year seems to be taking it's sweet time. Fine by me.

    Got about 1/2" more, Tonight around zero to 5 °f. Clearing up.
    Teens daytime & zero & below at night thru Thursday. My wood is drying thru "sublimation" :)
    I was going to split some this week but gonna be to cold, not good for the hydraulic fluid & pump. (good of an excuse as any :) )
    Alaska is storing up some cold air so we can send winter your way. N.of60 probably doing the same. WE like to share. Be in the "Jet stream mail" soon :)

    I just view leafs that are left on the lawn as early spring fertilizer . . . once I run over them one or two times with my mower. ;)

    I rarely have time to rake the yard each Fall.Maybe 1 year outta 5 it gets done.What usually happens is getting out the mower one more time,set it near the lowest depth & grinding them up.Anything that remains in early Spring gets raked before the grass reappears.

    I use the leaves to make compost for the garden. As the fall, mow & bag them with some grass clippings mixed in, I keep filling the compost bin, spray on a little water, it get hot & shrinks down & in a few days I add more.
    Start filling the bin in August with garden plants & leaves/grass. By next August I have good done compost & store it for use next spring & start a new batch.

    The first guy don't have a chance :lol: :)
    That's Brutal cold!!! Most I've had her was -30 for a few days. I learned allot about why use synthetic oil in vehicles that week :)
    I saw that on the weather site.
    These below zeros are a little early here, Usually next month.
    maybe we'll have to send a blast of cold air south pretty soon so everyone can start bragging about winter ;)
    Been burning more wood lately, 1/2 loads at noon & running on a higher stat setting. No smoky glass now :)
