Thats our weather today as. Went out at lunch to post some letters and down came the rain. Fortunately, it has warmed up so there is no ice.

The forecast called for 3-5 inches, and we got 16! My back can take no more of this.

I know, I normally don't get mad about snow, but last year we had snow every other day, this year we are getting hammered weekly and my snow thrower is down and the earliest I can get it into a shop is 3 weeks.

This years fishing season will be especially good.

Sounds like you don't have a snow plough?

I have a snow thrower and shovel. No plow. Next big storm I will hire someone. BTW, this years lesson for me was to do preventive maintenance on my snow thrower, start it a few times before it gets cold and put in some stabilizer into the gas.

If I had the room I'd love to own an old Gravely.

What I hate is when it snows you spend all your days off shoveling, snowblowing, etc. Then when it snows while I am at work, I have to deal with it there and at home. So, you have my sympathies. I hate snow!!
