    ...is that it stops the snow from drifting. Unfortunately, this part of the trail had already drifted before it started raining. Stuck!

    Did you get it unstuck or will it stay there 'til the spring thaw? :)

    I got it unstuck, twice in the same spot! It was 6°F this morning, so if I go out there today, it should float right over the top without leaving so much as a tire track.

    LOL !!!

    It's melting now, the ground is frozen so it's a wunnerful winter mess.

    Atleast Murph can go outside and not have to bound through a snow drift !!

    It was gone in a few days. I was visiting family on long island. I got there weds night, was a winter wonderland (More snow than we had in the Syracuse area) and by the time we were leaving sunday morning, I could see the grass again. Now, in Central NY, that much snow may last till June.

    It is rare for there to be snow on the ground all winter down our way.

    I've seen it snow here the first few days of May before, but not beyond that. Normal years we have snow all winter long, but not always.
