Snow. Again. :)

There has been a lot of snow on the east coast this year!

It is snowing again now, and rumor has it a big snow coming this weekend.

What are you pretending not to know ?

I've had enough already. I live in an area of rural homes interspersed with equestrian properties and our roads are unpaved. I have about 100 yards of driveway, shared with a neighbor but I plow it all as well as a couple of other neighbors. My truck was in the shop today due to hard starting, so I haven't got the plow on. I'm hoping this one turns out to be a dud but its looking like another pretty good storm. I'm really not looking forward to hooking up the plow again so soon, especially not with another storm being forecast for Friday. The hits just keep on commin'!

I live in Vancouver, our military helicopters and a few thousand soldiers and volunteers and trucks are on the way. Pleas put as much snow as you can carry into your fridges and freezers so we can collect it when we get there. But don't worry world, the olympics are going to be trouble free.

Ha..only 3-5 inches tonight here in the Towson area with a 1-2 foot storm prognosticated for the weekend.....but you know how accurate the weather talking heads are. I swear they own stock in bread stores and dairies sometimes.

Enough okay! Send it to Vancouver, they want it!

That's a good point. how come the stores always run out of bread, milk and eggs before a big storm? Do these people think they're gonna live on french toast until spring or something?

When the syrup runs out, it must get ugly. real ugly. Donner party ugly.

Gloat, gloat, smirk, smirk. Traded out my Chesapeake Bay avatar for one taken off Black Point in the Exumas.

Seriously, guys, I am thinking of you ... this was the right winter for us to so south!
