Re: 2' of snow

My boat is here — luckily, I am not.

But it looks like launch won’t be till June, at the earliest

Why go fast, when you can go slow.

Re: 2' of snow

The forecast was saying we could get as much as a foot of snow this last weekend, but it was about two degrees warmer than expected so much of it came as rain instead and we only ended up with 4" of slushy, heavy snow.

I love winter and snow, but I'm just about done.

At some point, enough is enough...

And as Mike O intimated, a lot of snow in March makes you realize it won't be gone soon.

I have a home that I open up during Easter... part of the ritual is to take the snowbanks from the roof slide off and throw it in the yard (hopefully to melt faster).

Last year, I did that and woke up to an inch of snow on top of the scattered snowbank

... at that point it seems like winter will last forEVA.... Like you I like the snow and winter too... I guess it is like boat ownership. The best two days of winter, when it starts and when it is over

Two seasons in Minnesota--winter and black flies (or road construction, if you prefer).
