Groundhog saw his shadow here in Chiberia. Great. The never-ending winter continues.

Maybe one of the hunters around here can shoot that hog.

More snow. The heavy wet stuff that with the 18 low forecast for tonight will be hard as concrete tomorrow.

We set a record for snowfall in SE MI for January. I've been keeping our neighborhood road clear with my Kubota and have gotten $300 in unsolicited "donations". Don't tell the IRS.

As predicted we'll get a free lunch from the next door neighbor next week. He's 80ish and as long as I have the snow thrower running I do his driveway too. He always insists on buying lunch later. I think it's more to have an excuse to go out than anything else.

I needed that--highest temp forecast here for the next nine days is 23 degrees and lows down below zero a couple of nights. Hope the beaver is right about that groundhog!

We finally got about 4 inches of snow here....helps, but we need more. Mountains got more in most places......but another few feet wouldn't hurt things any.

Sorry, that I took so long to answer. It is a 1972, the same year that we were married. What year are yours?

We had 9 inches of snow overnight and this morning. I am really over winter. I had to work today and DH drove me. We have had 4 wheel drive vehicles most of our lives, but have not had one since 09/12. We really could have used one today. The doctor that I work for did not show up to work and neither did our office manager. This part-time $10.00 per hour person will be calling off due to the weather in the future, when it is as bad out as it was today. I was foolish for going in. Was at work from 8:00 until the doctor called us at 11 something and told us to go back home. It was as bad going home as it was getting there!

Pretty exciting! It has been years since we had anything like this. Sounds like tomorrow might be a good day to just stay home. We aren't used to this kind of wintry mix, and even though F knows how to drive in it, the other drivers can't and create an extremely hazardous situation. We have zero snow/ice removal equipment here.

Meanwhile, right now, it is 63F outside.... Simply amazing!
Yeah, we were blasting around there as fast as we could on the 26th and 27th. Left Breaux Bridge early on the 27th, made it around Houston, almost to Corpus Christi before stopping in a campground for the night. Still the edge of the system caught up with us on the 28th morning and had to wait it out. But at least we were well out of the worst of it.

I've now officially started the "Screw This Winter" club. We're supposed to get a pile of heavy wet snow overnight, I called the guys to come and plow me out when it's over. I have a dentist appt to keep me happy (not) today, then will make a stew and let the guys do their thing. And I know it's been easier here than elsewhere.

But it's good not to have to get to work

As bad as winters can be here it's a hell of a lot better now that I don't have to go to work in that weather.

Snow, freezing rain, and sleet expected tonight through tomorrow a.m. I still work but if it is icy I will call into the office in the a.m. and take a vacation day. It seems that we also have a shortage of salt to treat the roads here in this pocket of western PA.

We're getting the same. Supposed to go to the doc's tomorrow to get some immunization shots but while I dislike doing that we can cancel. But it'll have to be pretty bad before I refuse to drive the truck.
