    Yeah, just when we could see the grass again. At least I have enough pellets to get me through in warm style!

    I'd rather mow than move snow, but both are fun for me, since I have no time pressures. My lawn is actually green in back, which used to be horse pasture. Had a bit of a shock last week - the snow cover disappeared overnight, so when I looked out expecting to see snow, the lawn was green as summer! I did the classic double-take before I believed what I was seeing.

    New England - if you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes, it'll change!

    Remember to have the essentials on hand, things like TP, gasoline for the blower and generator, snacks, pellets, and some brews. They tell me that food and water helps as well :p.

    If I was smart I'd just hibernate for a few weeks bypassing all of the maybe we will maybe we won't.. They really haven't called things very well lately.

    My Meteorologist daughter says it looks like a big one! The GFS says so. Whatever that means.

    It has snowed here for the past 10 days and they're calling for it again tonight and tomorrow. :( Grader is fueled and the stove is full, here we go again.

    Yeah, but the other liquid in it dehydrates you, nothing like the real deal.


    It is times like this that my fermenter comes in handy . 7 gallons filled to the top along with a pouring spout.

    Likewise the bathtub, fill it for flushing duties and no well pump needed for the first few days.
