    Spring officially hits on Wed, but another Nor'easter dropping 8"-14" on Tuesday. Temps in the 30's foretasted through next week as well.

    Just when I was starting to see a little bit of ground in the woods. Still have 8" in the yard :(

    Good news about spring storms is that they don't last very long once it hits the ground.

    Snow is almost gone in the yard. Boat cover almost came off Saturday. Good thing I left it on.

    When will the suffering end? _g I've done had it with this chit already! Waving a white flag, while chanting "spring-spring-spring" didn't work for me. STBear says white flag is the snow flag, What color flag should I be waving?

    Come on guys.....

    If you want the snow to end ......

    Go buy a new snow shovel......
    Take your Snow blower in for service to get it running at tip-top shape....
    Or put the plow on the truck.

    Guaranteed to not snow again till next year.

    :cool:

    I know. I was out in the yard in a t-shirt.... it was warm i said, "out of the garage and into the shed with you BEAST!" and ran it out and put it away. I also took my garden green house out to start my 8+ week starter plants (peppers/broccoli mostly)

    Started good over past few weeks when we were having warm days and cold nights with producers reporting big gains over last year's dismal production. Dont know if the mid thirties temps have dropped the sap flow?

    BUT Maple weekend in NH is this upcoming weekend !

    I've never even seen a thermometer on the shelf that goes to -20, let alone -60. lol

    and corn syrup does not count as maple syrup. Sorrys mr's B.
