    Rain turned over to snow this afternoon. They already canceled school for tomorrow:cool:
    Wish it was like that back in Maine.
    Oh and I wasn't able to get my milk-sandwich supplies

    I was thinking the same thing . . . nice looking house.

    By the way Basod . . . not sure if I ever asked . . . where did you live in Maine and how did a Yankee end up in Alabama (I mean it's all good . . . one of my good friends married a gal from Alabama so I figure it all evened out. ;) )

    Grew up in Scarborough. Powerplant job brought me here twice before deciding to settle down
    For the record this is actually the "back" of the house aka DoorYahd
    The formal front Cape with two dormers waits around the other side, with a bunch of big trees and a 60yd hike up steep grade.
    Wondered why I don't get any trick or treaters:rolleyes:

    How do you like living in the South Basod . . . my wife is trying to convince me to move to North Carolina when we retire. Other than a short stint of schooling in New Hampshire I've pretty much lived all my life in rural Maine.

    I guess it's all relative, but that's not enough snow to stop much of anything.
    Must be the road commission isn't geared up for "snow" removal.:cool:

    Yeah, the southern states simply don't have the equipment to deal with ANY of it. Shuts the places down till it turns 50F the next day and melts.;lol

    Heck, they have more snow than I do.

    In the summer of 1996 we were headed back from Niagara Falls and were in western New York driving south between a couple of finger lakes. I told my wife that it was beautiful there and I could live somewhere like that. About that time we passed a huge yard with the biggest salt domes and massive snow moving equipment I have ever seen.

    I pressed a little harder on the accelerator.

    You can tell how much snow an area is used to by the size and amount of equipment at the D.O.T. stations.;lol

    Nothing like snow to add to a picture. Now the shoveling can get old.

    Fortunately it melts by noonish the next day.
    That's after the bodyshops are backed up for the next month - all those pesky signs "Bridge may ice before roadway"
