    We keep the snows mounted on steelies. It just happened this year we needed new ones and it took a while to find a decent unmounted set for sale at a decent price. Got em on this week so let it snow!

    Huh... it is snowing here tonight. It is supposed to turn to rain tomorrow afternoon though, and snow/rain on and off through the week. Supposed to dump several feet in the Cascades, so I can start skiing again. I like to drive to and play in the snow, but I do not like to live in the stuff. My cat does not like the snow, as he cannot hunt for his favorite food: voles. He gets cabin fever pretty fast here.

    Supposed to snow like s*f* in the next few days in the Midwest. The sleet and snow has mostly melted here now, but temps are dropping again and it is likely doing to dump here again.

    Pouring rain here now, what snow we had is washing away. Let it go, let it go, let it go! We are close enough to the coast to get blasted by the 'North Easters, or saved from the west to east snow storms. I don't care to build snowmen, so no use for the snow!

    Since we had a chitty winter last year for snow, hardly any rain over the summer, I'll take a good ole winter just for the water in the spring.

    Oscillating here in heat the last 4 days: 32, 46, 33, 42 again now. Snow is gone except the piles from shoveling the sidewalk.

    Ask and you shall receive, we received a good 10 inches of snow with more coming.

    It looks like the chains will go on the Rhino tomorrow.

    It looks like A.S.S.(Another Storm System) will be moving into the east coast late Wednesday & Thursday with the possibility of heavy snow.

    I decided to run the trails around the house to see how the Rhino would handle it without chains, it went smooth.

    I did get a ic of a deer hanging out just off the back hill.

    I was just watching the weather channel, our town of Colton made it on TV for getting 14 inches of snow.
