OK, you got me Dave. Yes, I knew it was coming. But for whatever reason, I still cannot get used to it. You would think with 48 Nebraska winters under my belt, it would be easier!!

I can't help but notice its always the "former" Omahan's who seem to put the positive spin on things!!

I hope your staying warm enough out there in Southern Cali Dave!!

It just stopped snowing, I had to do the driveway by hand, since the snow-thrower is iced up. My DW is really mad at me right now, I don't have a garage or shed so I needed to bring the snow-thrower inside to thaw out a little and clean the plug. I have to get it running before Sunday's incoming Nor-Easter which can be up to 20" of snow.

I guess I will be a little more diligent with routine maintenance on it from now on. Maybe even start it before the temps get below freezing.

Misery loves company it seems. Coast to coast we are getting hammered by winter. We shut down early sending staff home and closed Thursday. One of our guys took his mud buggy into the Coastal range and busted logging trails that had 3' of powder. I'm heading out to the grocery early as another storm is to hit late tonight and last through Monday. High winds and potential accumulation of up to 1' of snow. It is a recipe for big time power outages.

DQ, I am so sorry about your tree. What a shame.

We just got word that the snow that was going to come today and then was forecasted for tomorrow is coming tonight. I am just hoping they are right that it will be "after 7:00" because we are helping out at a banquet tonight and if it is snowing when it starts at 5:00 no one will come (happened two years ago).

More snow on the way tonight and tomorrow and of course the pick up truck that has the plow on it, has a leaking gas tank. Hubby just left to get 5 gallons of gas but won't put the gas in til he's ready to plow the driveway, tomorrow or Monday. I am expecting shipments from UPS and Fed Ex so driveway needs to be cleared.

Smokey: Yeah, we're trying to stay warm. 30 at 7 am, now about 65. DW and I just had frozen yogurt out on the patio in the sunshine. They do say there's another storm coming - maybe Tues or so. My son who lives near the arctic circle says it's very nice there - -10 or so for a high. He says one of his friends smokes (meat) year around by using a "welders blanket" on his smoker. (Whatever that is) Perhaps that would work for you.
