Getting some snow today. I've seen forecasts of 1-3, 3-5, 3-6. So, looks like we'll just get a few inches.

Going to move firewood into the hoop in the garage today since I brought the wood on it into the house last night. Will split some wood with a maul a couple of times today, too. I cut two fingers on my left hand 30 years ago, and the tips are very sensitive to the cold now. The fingertips get very cold even with glove liners under my work gloves. Can only stay outside about a half hour with light gloves when the temperature is in the teens. Mittens are fine. Ski gloves are o.k., sort of.

We are supposed to be getting snow from the big system moving across the NE starting at about 3:00. Then going to change to rain before a temp drop later in the week. I hope the rain washes it all out and doesn't leave us with a frozen mess.

Ended up with 3-5 inches, then some freezing rain. Now its above freezing so the snow is wet and heavy. Kids loving it. Got all the snow cleared before the near 0* air comes in later this evening.

1 1/2 " - 2" of rain coming our way starting in about an hour or so. 45F outside right now, lows of 35F tonight. I'll take it.

Let the PE go cold, cleaned the boost baffle, cleaned out the stove, dumped the ash can, etc. Everything is top covered, aside from the 6 pines I had taken out last week ;)

We ended up with 3 inches of wet heavy snow yesterday and it all but melted off today with highs getting to 40. Needless to say its a muddy mess here after around 5 inches of rain last weekend and this snow on top of it.

Accu has us getting 0.53 inches of ice late Thursday night, we'll see what the forecast is on Wednesday.

We did buy another five bags of sand (60 lbs per bag) after the last freezing drizzle so we should be set, that will give us ten bags along with pellet & wood ash for the driveway.

Did you guys get hit with all that rain the last couple of days? We had a local state of emergency declared with all the flooding a main highway closed.

Yes, mostly north of us. Lots of flooding. We did ok, but everyone's ponds are overflowing and several ponds showed up where there were none before!

This is the winter we have been having this year. Like a yo yo but much warmer in general. No minus 30 stints that we typically have. Today is actually the coldest day thus far -14 this morning.. No Frost in the ground at all. Very unusual.
