That's OK. I'm pretty sure they haven't been invented yet

Darn wind. It hasn't even snowed today and I'm getting 6" drifts in my driveway.

Been there, done that. I tried for 7-8 seasons to find that perfect spot and perfect angle and perfect distance from my driveway. It wasn't worth the effort of putting up and taking down. Somehow I still managed to accumulate drifts in that one spot. Thanks for the thought though

I like that fence though. I could put one up around my property. Sharpen the posts of course...

I just got back from shopping the new Giant Eagle. Wow. No longer can I say I live where they don't sell prosciutto... or octopus or squid or... They've got everything! Of course I couldn't find anything, but I'm sure it's there somewhere And I was also able to score a six-pack of Woodchuck hard cider for Snipper's mussel recipe tonight
I am now sitting enjoying a beer after my peanut butter sandwich

I meant the first pic I posted was weenie. I like your snow fence...almost works to keep in small dorgies, too.

I've seen buck and rail fences, like the second pic, that were 12-15 feet tall on the high plains in Wyoming.

I was thinking maybe after the Shirley Maclaine character's year is done, she'll grab up Matthew as her boy toy and carry him back to America.
