OK, Christmas is over...the snow can go!

Postby STRETCH » Sat Dec 29, 2012 9:37 pm

Someone posted that they wanted some snow down south......well the novelty has worn off.

You can have some of mine!!!

Only plus side is the mud is gone...for now.

Since last week we have over 26 inches.

Tony,
Why yes, I did get some new long johns , and I don't forsee taking them off until June.

You are also a keen observer, if you look closely in the far left of the photo you can see me and the team just behind the Kubota loader frame. We were out sleighing. My older brother actually took the photos of the Brocks yesterday.

Again today, 5 inches over night and the wind is ripping up here today. The drive way is drifted in with about a foot of snow again...so I'll wait until tonight to clean out AGAIN!!!

I'll just sit here by the wood stove and drink coffee and eat left over christmas cookies. :mrgreen:

I remember those days quite clear. When I had my house in the Poconos mount's
I missed the fireplace but I don't miss the snow.
I thought that was you standing there with someone else. Tony

Yes it does.....only the scene didn't change for 45 minutes, as I-84 was closed due to accidents yesterday.

John
Waiting 45 min for an accident sucks but it's better than being the accident, that sucks alot. I'm not sure why people thing you have the same traction and stopping ability on a snow covered road as they do when it is dry. The frist snow if each winter we all have to relearn to drive and some fail. Thanks for driving safely!

Gee you're tearing me up!! I was skiing all weekend here in NC and would love a few more inches of snow. Of course back home at the Big Sky Garage it's sunny and in the fifties!! Good news is, the grass doesn't grow as fast. :-) I'll plan on seeing you guys in June or later!!

Emery; aren't you coming to the Spring Fling and Change of Display Event the first weekend of May ? Bring your skies as there will still be snow at Greek Peak.
