    Yesterday we received about four inches of snow but early this morning we got hit pretty good, I would say between 10-12 inches of snow. Attached are some pictures.

    zap, we got about 4" a couple days ago,.... that was bad enough.
    I guess I could deal with some more snow, it's the darn cold that's starting to get to me.
    I do remember last year, the end of March, I started the wood shed, so I guess we're not TOO far away from the warmer stuff.

    Looks like the Albany area got hit with about 3 inches of ice plus the snow.

    I've also heard a nasty rumor there is another storm later this week. Your the weather man true or false?

    This morning I started thinking more positive. I removed the snow blade. I do hope that brings good luck....

    I got a great deal on a snowblower this past Saturday. Got it home, checked fluids, etc and put it into the barn thinking I won't touch it again until late this year...wrong! Got about 12" here too....at least I left the plow blade on the truck!

    Zap, at least you shouldn't have any drought conditions this year!?

    About 15" in the northern Catskills. Snow on top mud underneath makes for tough plowing. Talked to a friend in southern Columbia County and they got little snow and a lot of ice. Trees down and no power since last night (its too far for scrounging opportunities).

    Last year the spring was very dry with plenty of burn bans on open fires, so you never can tell.

    Here's what I was looking at

    Classic drifting. The poor old wood wagon couldn't fit in the garage w/ the other cars since I'm doing some other work in there which is taking up it's space.

    A friend used to quote Dorothy Parker:

    "I like to have a martini,
    Two at the very most.
    After three I'm under the table,
    after four I'm under my host."

    Yeah all the trees are covered in ice, It was a wonderful drive to work Monday morning. Don't think it was 3" of ice but at 7am I was chipping at at least 2" to get into the car. My son couldn't even get in his. He waited until the afternoon to let it thaw some. I'm tired of this winter. And yes they are talking about another storm Thursday and Friday! Going to be watching the St. Paddys day parade sanding on sno banks! In senic icy Albany.
