    Winter wonderland, so much better to have a bit of white stuff when having to deal with the cold
    Eventually it gets old.
    Used to love it when my Pap would cut me loose with the old 1T chevy on a parking lot while he ran the loader.
    I don't miss shoveling out from garages and doorways though:mad:

    Not sure about you Dave but if I have to put up with the cold temperatures it just seems right to have the snow too.

    Yea
    I like the snow. Good for the yard & other plants to have snow to help insulate the roots .
    Warms up here to snow. 28° today.
    Hoping to get 2 feet or so. A good base to get the snowmachine out :)

    It's about time Dave! I figured you would have had snow long before now. We are expecting a big storm here Monday. So far it has just about every ingredient. Snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain. Too close to call so it's a wait and see event.

    Looks good Dave with all that snow. Nice to see all that wood when everything is all white.

    Looks alot better than what we have here Dave. No snow! Did you get the wood re-stacked that fell from the earthquake? If not, looks like it can wait till spring/July. :eek:

    Yes, I'd rather have the snow with the cold. Gives the rugrats something to do outside.

    Not yet.
    May end up waiting like you mentioned.
    Wind will come again & the snow on the stack will be gone or drifted over. Then I'll decide.

    Pull up a moving van to the front door. Load up some stuff & head this way :)
    Bring snow machine , rifles & saws ;)

    I'm on my 7th "5 year plan"
    Wife & I said try it for 5 years in April, 1982.
    Loaded up the 2 kids & drove to Alaska.
    Then 5 more years.... etc. Still here. LOL

    Every time I go back East, I'm good for a couple weeks. Then time to get out of all the traffic, hurry up, development & crowds.

    AND?
    What are dreams for?
    You only live once. Might as well make it an adventure ;)

    LOL :) , Just poking fun. You would love it though.

    Got maybe 6-7" out this way. Got 12+ in Los Anchorage. Was deep enough that I got stuck a few times on my way to work. Snow was rolling over the hood and covering the windshield.

    Already tired of it. :p Spent almost 8 hrs at work clearing snow only to come home and do the same. Oh the the idiot vehicle manager that decided to buy F450 2wd duallie stake bed trucks for us.. .thanks a bunch. Completely useless 6 months out of the year.

    Nothing at all on the horizon except some rain this weekend. We still were scraping snow off the logs today when cutting but there is not much left. In the open areas it is all gone. Really warmed up today too and it felt good to be out there even if I didn't get much done.

    Wish we had snow like that here Dave! How much do you get total from this snow? We got none here last winter except for a bit in October, and looks like we won't have any here until January. I've got to get up to Alaska someday!
