129 miles on the sled today with my brother-in-law and good friend Joe. Only saw one other sled . . . well two if you count the broken down Yamaha in middle of the trail . . . the Fat Lady is starting to sing though . . . snow is slowly and surely melting away. While snow in places was still over a foot deep, near the roads and in some fields it was down to dirt, ice or snirt.

Hit a couple of "mountains" which used to have fire towers on them -- Harris Mountain and Frye Mountain (more like big hills though.)

Hey, Suffolk looks like a winter wonderland tonight.

Saw a couple of cars spin out on William Floyd. Not a lot of snow (2 inches maybe) but it sure was icy.

I guess I can't go Steelhead fishing for a few days yet... it would be difficult at best. will just continue snowmobiling for now. :cool:

P.S. It's +1::F outside right now, which is real bad for Maple Weekend. And Steelhead fishing.

It just dawned on me that they've already started stocking the trout this year. They may have needed to chop or bore a hole first though. Season opens April 1st on the trout streams around here. 13 frickin degrees this morning.

29 this morning in Nassau
— could not believe what I saw on the news on the east end -- a winter wonderland indeed.
Well it looked pretty at least, but that's about all.
Snowed all day yesterday here but not much of it stuck
hopefully we're nearly done with this Winter crapola

A fair amount ended up sticking here. Enough that I had to shovel anyway. Got a pretty good blaze going again tonight. Supposed to be into the low 30's maybe high 20's overnight o_O.

*Grumbles* Had to muck rake the snow in front of the stalls, so it won't ice up tonight.

Loaded up the house for the week.

I have a goal, which is to empty the wood rack in the house, then reload from fresh stock .... the bottom half has been inside for 2 years... it should burn well :mad:

Crazy. We have been in the low 60s which is high for March here, more like May weather. My accountant hibernates in AZ during the winter. He is complaining of 96F temps yesterday! Those folks are going to bake come summer if this keeps up.

I see a pattern setting in. The same thing happened last Winter.

And if I remember correctly you guys were warm about now then too.

It is similar to last year, but this year is definitely warmer so far. Go back 4 years and it was the opposite.

Last day of March and I watched the plow go rumbling by as I was pouring my morning coffee. 26, windy, 2" of fresh snow.

Small outside job on delay due to snow, cold, wind, and the wonderful ice cold roof line drip that comes with working below the low eve. Those are mid winter reasons for a delay, not last day of march reasons. :mad:

Teens tonight and tomorrow night. I've got enough wood for about four more days.

Weatherman keeps showing it warming up three days out. Kinda like that dusty sign in the corner of the bar that says " Free Beer Tomorrow".

The last two days I loaded the shed for next year. Time for the flower pots on the stove. Thirties tomorrow night but the oil filleds can have it. I am done for the season. Actually have been for two weeks.
