Better get the shovel waxed up, Andy

It was another beautiful day here today. Low twenties, but man it felt good. That's like four days in a row. The sun was so bright it kept right on melting the snow and ice.
My turn to post a rosy sunset

regretting my decision to not get new front tires last weekend, procrastinating has not served me well during this weather...

I was able to get home, but got stuck in a parking space, today I was able to get out of the parking spot that I was in and into my own, with the help of a neighbor pushing me. I may take Rob's car, which has new tires to work tomorrow. He's thinking of starting vacation early.

It's up to -7C (19F) and it's going up to -4C (25F) tonight and staying there until Friday night. I did some shopping and just before pulling onto the ramp to our garage I saw a few snowflakes start.

Wish we had a view like that tonight. Instead I was looking at a fresh 9" of snow. Now it's raining to beat the band, random thunder rumbles and lightening flashes just to keep it interesting. Uncle, already! I'm so tired of this winter...

If the wind is 0 mph, why does the weather thing tell me it's coming from the North???

It is on its way.

I think the weather service got it wrong. 5-10 cm (2-4 inches) was predicted by the end of today.

The top of this fence is a squirrel highway. Badoing, badoing!



And the view out my front door:



Same view an hour later, after the second go of snow removal:
