Unhappy OH NO!!! Not again!

I finally got the driveway completely clear of snow and ice the other night. The driveway and the road I live on have been like a skating rink in the mornings and about 6" of slush in the afternoons. The snow had melted enough that you could actually see patches of grass.

Then I looked out this morning and as of 7:30 we have received at least 3” and we are expecting totals up to 8”. Temperature is 16° and falling. Low in the morning is expected to be -4°.

The good news is, by Saturday highs are expected to reach near 50° and highs in the low 60’s by Tuesday! Hopefully this will be our last big round of winter weather this season. I plan on camping next month and doing some crappie fishing.

Good luck and happy camping!

The two pics below were taken at 7:30 am. It's been snowing non stop since and will probably keep snowing for several more hours.

I know what snow we receive here isn't much compared to what our friends up north receive, but I wouldn't mind one of those. I could probably have my driveway and my road cleared in about 30 minutes!

Any idea of it's tow rating? I might get some winter camping in while I'm at it!!!

I'ld rather be a whimp!!!!

I don't know how you guys do it.

Looks like it's just about over for us. We probably have about 5" additional snow. I'll get out in a little bit and start shoveling the sidewalk and driveway. With my back it will take awhile. Have to take a few breaks along the way.

Hope you guys thaw out soon. Keep in mind, camping season is getting closer. I'm beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. It may be dim, but it's there!
