Oh No! Not Again!

Well it’s snowing again! Or, should I say still. We had another eight inches of snow in the driveway this morning and it is still coming down.

The biggest problem is where to put the snow. There are huge piles of snow everywhere.

A couple of years ago my good friend, Bobby, gave me this snow blower. I have been storing it in the shed. During our last blizzard, I took it out and Bobby got it running pretty good.

I used it this morning and it works quite well. It’s a lot like mowing the grass – in the winter.

Sounds like another week or so for you to be snowbound.
It's a good thing you don't have to do any Christmas shopping during this week's storm.
We had your bad weather last week here. A tree got struck by lightening down the road a ways.
As soon as you can, retire. Then you can be my neighbor for the winter.
That's what my neighbor from Telluride does, he comes in October and goes back to his ranch in May.
He does go up for skiing some in the winter.
Hope all stays good with the snowblower, we don't want any heart attacks up your way!

That sure is a lot of snow.
Blowing wins hands down over the shovel!
I could run over with JD4430 with the 8 ft blower but that would be
Enjoy the snow and toss a few snowballs.
Have a wonderful day!

Seeing all of that snow makes me want to put on a hat--except it is 58 degrees in Indianapolis. And that is okay with me!

The biggest problem is where to put the snow? I told you I'd take all you can throw my way...and then some. Hurry up, I'm waiting...

It's awfully nice of you to let Mother Nature dump that white stuff all over you, so that we don't have to put up with it here. As Nora said, 58 degrees here, and still no snow yet. But darn it, it's raining. Bummer.

Thanks, Pal!

I saw that you're getting hit with your third major snow storm and I shook my head.

It's going to get up into the 60's in the NW corner of CT today. :0P

Poor, Ralph! I feel for you. I'm in Cleveland, and it's RAINING RAINING RAINING! We got over 2 inches so far and have had LOTS of flooding, but luckily not in my house. Yesterday, I walked around for a while with a short-sleeve shirt and no jacket. Yep, I'm bound to be sick for sure. So many people getting sick. It's supposed to get colder here over the next couple days, and MAYBE a chance for a little snow.

Darnit! I want snow and cold. The weather LOOKS ugly. I want the cold and snow to go with it! Ship some here please?!!!!!

So far this winter we have had two little dustings of snow. I think you are getting the share of many of us. But who knows what the next couple of months will bring? You may get the warm stuff and we may get the snow! I'll bet you are hoping that is right aren't you?? Time will tell.

Glad you have the snow blower since you need it! I'd say that beats shoveling all to pieces! You could built an igloo with some of the extra snow.....just a thought.

I feel for you, sir. I hope things melt quickly for everyone there.

Okay, I enjoyed reading your previous post. Very good list.

I left a note for you on the blog about that goofy hat. That was an intriguing post, too. I liked it.
