1/2" here, 7°
Driveway melted of already.
Nice sunny day but 20° with 5 mph wind just feels cold .
Spring hasn't Sprung here yet
I went to Lowe's a few nights ago. My main snow shovel wore out and the metal cutting edge fell off (what remained of it). All they had for shovels was a few crappy ones on clearance.
Had all the grass seed, mowers, hoses, fertiziler, etc all out on display though. Who the hell is in charge of that? Someone from Florida?!
Got any tomato & garden plants out yet?
I didn't go look in the greenhouse, but I wouldn't be surprised!
Went out with out sun glasses
Just about blinded me.
Fresh white snow , severe clear & 15 hours of sunshine today ;
Spring will happen
It's around the corner or two
You've got snow - we've got rain, rain and more rain. Almost 4 inches since Sunday I guess.
I'm seriously thinking about surfing the web for the definition of a 'cubit' so I can start building an Ark.
Sounds like you could do that in the yard, Shari.
It could help speed up the stacking.
I like the snow better than a week of rain (4" WOW ) but the temps are colder than the norm.
Should be melting the snow but only getting 20s day time temps.
** The cubit is an archaic unit of length based on the length of the forearm from the elbow to the tip of the middle finger. **
shoot Dave I could have surfed all the way home 34 miles with the wind and rain. It hasn't let up for more than a couple hours the last few days.
Still raining....... it's letting up a little. It's to the point I don't even want to listen to the weather forecast anymore even though I did hear we've had 4.8" of rain since Sunday........
I am SO glad I had traffic bond brought in to raise the rear area where I have wood stacks. Those stacks are about 6' inside the lot line, yard pitches down to the lot line at a small grade. I think it was 69 contractor wheelbarrows of gravel I had dumped in a 16x24' stacking area. Right now, our rear lot line is a lake 8' wide from side lot line to side lot line and the water continues to our neighbors on both sides of us - but my stacks are high and dry.
Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream......
It would be some serious snow & ice skating here. 15° & dropping.
Few stars are just now showing , almost dark here at 9:50
I don't know if I'd rather have rain or snow. Snow doesn't bother me all that much as we've got a riding mower with a knockout fantastic snowblower on it.
I was up the ladder last weekend cleaning out our gutters in preparation for the rain forecasted. We've got a locust tree that drops those seeds pods all winter long and they clog up the gutters. I noticed we've got a couple of gutter straps that let loose from the snow load we had this winter so I have to get up there and fix them before next winter. I really don't like ladder work but, oh well....
I bought one of these last year and it works great. I get a TON of cottonwood floaters in the spring/ early summer, looks like it's snowing when a breeze picks up. Cleaned the garage a few days ago and I was still finding piles of them in the corners.
One of my friends just moved from here to Ohio and they are getting hit with this rain as well.
There are areas around here where cottonwood trees are prohibited because their 'floaters' clog up air conditioning vents and pool filters.
We raked up our locust seeds last fall, raked them up again during a January thaw (no snow on the ground), did it again the end of February (another thaw) and need to do it again. Most times we can collect three 33 gallon garbage cans of the stinkers in one raking. The only good thing is this tree doesn't drop seeds every year. Right now our lawn looks horrible because of all the seeds.
That tool you linked to would work in warm weather but most of the time we are dealing with the seeds in cold weather.
I wish they were banned here, but they grow like weeds!
Yes, I usually clean the gutters out in the summer and again in the fall.
-5* this morning.
Recorder showed -3° for coldest last night.
Glad to have snow cover if it's this cold, better for the yard & garden.
Was out in Big Lake a bit ago and the gas station dude was saying they saw -15* last night/this morning. Someone tell Mother Nature this ain't winter!
0* this morning. Warming up a bit
Sister posted pics on Facebook on Sunday -- her birthday -- said when they started out it was in the negative numbers and enough snow for her to do over 100 miles on the sled.
As for me . . . I went to St. Stephen/St. Andrews to geocache and enjoy the spring weather -- albeit it was damp and a bit dreary . . . but no snow or sub zero temps.
