Snowstorm!!

As you have probably heard, we are in the middle of a major blizzard here in the North East. We are expecting about 2 feet of snow here on Long Island. So far, I have cleaned about a foot off my driveway, and the snow isn't expected to stop until sometime tonight. It's not all work, though, me and my buddies were out having fun on the quads and snowmobiles!!

I think I'd prefer some snow instead of the freezing rain and sleet we got. Power lines are down all over and my DSL is out. Luckily we have a WiFi hot spot and a wood stove.

Enough winter. I'm ready for Spring now.

Just a few weeks ago I remember you folks back there talking about 50-60+ degrees and great rides. While here in Wash. state it was cold, rainy,etc. Just be safe back there and wait a little while and then it's back to the sunshine.

ours has pretty much come and only a bit remains in the yard. glad to have ducked that one. our driveway (shaded) is still covered in ice by the house but our roads are clear.

you guys be careful


As soon as you become accustom to anything, some moron has to change it.

You beat me to that, tbfoto!

No tarp?
Use the living room drapes.
No doubt.

( I hate it when someone says 'divorce' like it's a bad thing. )
