We have been plowing ourselfs out of this stuff for less than a week now, and still exspecting more. looks like we have about 16” and who knows how much more we are suppose to get.
Dont get me wrong, If I was in any better of condition, I would be right out in this myself. I have always enjoyed the snow, and all the sports that goes with it.
So if anyone would like to take some of this snow off our hands, I’m sure we could make up a farely reasonable offer for you. IT’S FREE. All you have to do is come and get all you want, at your own cost that is.
Anyway, enjoy the beauty of our winterwanderland. and My home. Jim

Wow, we had three rainy days, and I feel confident that our winter is over, and spring is here. The trees are blooming, what abeautiful winter we’ve had.
Sorry to hear about that white stuff all over your life. Dreaming of a white Christmas?

Hi Jim;
—-yes, I know what you mean about the plowing…..

Up here at this time of year, what others call snow, I start calling that batch of ‘great white hindrance’. Spent all of yesterday plowing out here and then there’s always that fine art of hand shoveling….

Today, well I’m sure I’ll play at some clean up and then when all is done, I’ll stand back and give thanks! Two days ago I smelled spring in the air and then there was even ground to behold, now all is covered with snow, so this also can be a blessing in that there now is fresh virgin snow to set my snoeshoes upon.

Great woods all around you there Jim and it is truly a beauty of winter-wonder-land.
GODSPEED,
Frank

Thanks, Jim, this reminds me why I moved to Australia. The snow only falls in the mountains here. I think that’s the way God intended it. LOL

We’re spoiled with only 2 snowstorms this year – bizarre el Nino/global warming thing – so I really can’t complain, though the snowblower gave up on me last storm (the light fluffy, but DEEP powdery one) so I’m stuck with a manual dig out of the heavy deep slushy one. Did the bare minimum to get out yesterday, 40/50 temps today helped melt the rest a bit, and more sun tomorrow will hopefully see the clean up completed.

Ok, we’re close to daylight savings (and it’s still technically winter) but that should mean an end to the snow, right?

Oh, last I’d heard (as of mid-week, pre last storm), Boston only had 4” of their annual 40+ average. Despite a 12-18” plus, and a 6-8+ incher for our yard, it’s been a very light year indeed.

Actually, Scott, less snow is not a good thing. Less snow equals less water, equals lower lakes and less river-flow. In short, lower snowfall in winter equals drought and all the problems that brings. Ask any Aussie.

we’ve had very little snow as well—lots of rain though, lots and lots of rain.

People here are complaining about winter and with our storm this weekend they are saying “it’s MARCH now.. it is supposed to be springtime”.
I’m not sure where they grew up, but this is Ontario Canada and – usually with several feet of snow coming down in a winter—and winter is December to the END of March.
Come on people—remember where you live.

I think my son, in BC, had more snow this year than we did here in S-W Ontario.

I agree with Larry, while you are plowing the driveway, maybe take out a tree or two. You can have it start drying up for your future projects. Maybe check with the woodbutcher and see if he can bring his sawmill by.

In California, we have had a dry year so far. Like Don said, lack of snow is bad. We have had several droughts through the last 25 years, so we like to see the rain and snow.

Of course, it is nice to be able to wear a short sleeve shirt in March and smell the blossoms all over.

Hello and yes to most of you on the comments of lacking of moisture in the soil. Most of the past winter has been very dry here. Everywhere around us has recieved there usaul amout of snow but we have not recieved our quota. this snow that we have now has helped out this area greatly, I was afraid that we would go into a drout mode for the year. I am not farmer, buisness man or anyone that would be hurt by a droubt except, I would see the results in the prices of anything that the weather has an affect on. I really do Love the snow, but being that I am not able to go out in it, it hurts to see all of this. Sence I took these pictures we have had another 4-5” of snow ontop of what we had received. We will be thankful for all this snow in the spring for the farmers to plant there crops. Thank all of you for all your comments, and yes it is beautiful time of the year. Jim

Hi everyone – just thought I’d introduce myself since I was new here. And, sorry Jim, but I think you should actually be thankful you got as little as you did. :^)
We were lucky here in Brewerton NY, in that we only got a little over 3 feet over two weeks (see our house above). Redfield NY is 20 minutes away from us and they got 12 feet in the same amount of time. Believe it or not, it didn’t top the record because it was technically three lake effect snow events over those two weeks. They are looking at making a new record listing just for them because of those totals!

Anyway, stay warm everyone,

Muddler

Hey Muddler.. those pictures remind me of a time when I was a young girl when my uncle had to climb out the 2nd floor window to dig out the door.
Ah the memories.

Enjoying our mild winters,

Debbie I had an employee and she told me about visiting a cousin in Maine and she was looking at their barn and the door on the second floor. She asked them what it was for and they told her it was where they parked the snowmobiles.

She said how do you get them there and they replied they drove them in.
