Not sure about this global warming but up here in the great white north we have nothing white on the ground. Darn cold but no snow

If I knew this type of storm was going to come along more that every dozen years or so, the TJ (or my truck) would have a plow. But just can't justify it unless it happened more often.

I will probably be taking the missus to work the 1st couple of days next week.

It's a pain but it does look nice. I cleared the driveway earlier today around 11:00 AM so it wouldn't be the total snow fall to dig out from. That TORO Snow-thrower is a bad machine. One thing else I used the leaf blower to clean off the cars and the front of the motorhome. It's a nice dry snow so it just blew off. Currently it looks like I never went outside but I'll venture out tomorrow morning to attack it again.

ATTENTION: Mother Nature - We have enough snow for a White Christmas. Thanks but enough is enough!!!!

That's O.K. Mike I work for the FAA I know what goes on behind the scenes. I'm also a pilot and I'm afraid to fly.

Actually we are grateful out here this year as we had one of the worst winters I can remember in over 40years of living in WA last year. Spokane's airport was closed more than it was open as they couldn't get the snow off it fast enough for planes to land. Our idiot neighbors drove their truck without chains or weight in the back of it down our steep hill and ended up under the propane truck trying to come up the hill to deliver, then another idiot neighbor tried to go down, saw the other idiot neighbor under the propane truck and ended up in the ditch half way down the hill. Closed our street for several hours, our only way out!

Snow blowers? Honestly I don't know where you can buy one around here. We like the snow and skiing in it but it can stay up in the mountains where it belongs.

We ended up with some 24 inches on the ground. Nothing is moving except 4 wheel drive trucks. We cleaned the driveway with the truck and then got 4 more inches. Oh well, here we go again. Hope they get this mess cleaned up before the first of Jan when we head for Florida for the rest of the winter.
Stay warm.

The following morning everything looked very nice. Even the snowman looked happy!! Clean up took about 2-1/2 hours considering I cleaned out about 8 to 9 inches the day before during the storm. Thank God for that snow-thrower.
