The place looks like a war zone.

And I remember a few years back.

Send me some warm weather please.

I realized today as I walked Murphles in the back yard, that we hadn't done this since mid January. Even he was surprised, and thrilled.

Oh man, Murph must be in heaven. It's no fun being a cat or a dog when there's no place to do their business but a canyon of snow. It's rough on all critters and humans.

There is always a Murph path,might be by the stacks, but that's why I wear Mudd Ruckers if needed :)

Michelle The Woodpile Panther cat has a cute way of showing when she is irritated. She picks up her right paw and shakes it once. Does it any time I open the door and there is snow out there. During Snowmageddon I opened the door and there was three feet of snow out there. The only time I saw a right paw and then a left paw shake.

Murph actually walked out onto the back deck and looked left and right and forward, shuddered, and sighed.

Smart creatures.

Dixie, on the other hand, gives you a look that says "why am I inside, it's glorious out there", when it's a sheet of ice. And she handled it, Wisconsin farm girl that she is :mad:

My wife walks George the foster dog along the path made by my snowmobile ...,before riding I typically go out and pick up the poo so I don't get it all over the sled.

It's great! I am fortunately,,,,,one of those people that like colder weather. I dislike spring,,, a lot! Mud, mud, mud. Nothing to do in the mud. Just sit around in the house or wade in the mud. I hate mud.

Let it snow!

We still have to step up from the back porch to go "down" . . . as you can see the snow is level with our above ground pool.
So let me get this straight - the pool won't be open next week? :oops:

Dix is dipping into next years firewood, damn it.

Gonna be an expensive purchasing season for me, as well as splitting and stacking what I have to process.

If you get tired of being a couch potato here's how to put it to new use once the snows melt.

Still waiting for spring! According to the local weather guy it will be a few more weeks of below average temps. This really is getting old!

This has been a long thread, thought I would add my piece: -2 here this morning. 3 yesterday morning. 7 on Sunday morning. 0 last Thursday. Farenheit. You get the drift. And nobody's making syrup yet. There is still snowmobiling, though... lots of it. Clubs are still grooming trails. 41 snowmobiles at the local establishment on Sunday afternoon. Yay spring! Since it did warm up above freezing and now very cold again, I can walk right on top of the roughly 2-3 feet of snowpack we have left. Took the dog for about a 3 mile walk up behind the house on Sunday morning, it was good for both of us. Enjoy the view behind the house, from Sunday:

Just looked at the extended forecast into April on Accuweather and saw freezing temps, rain, flurries, plenty of 40s and 50s. The early baseball games are going to be cold.

Don't think the pellet stash is going to make it.

77 degrees today. And then the temp dropped 25 degrees and poop floating downpours started. Rain ain't a sound I wanna hear. Sounds like mud falling from the sky to me. :mad:
