    We started out our day at -25C (10 below zero F), and by the time we came home, we were at -5C (24F).

    We are on a 6 star ship with everything laid on, plenty of champers or any drink just laid on with no bill at the end. They even have food so who cares if we get stuck :D
    Just past our first iceberg today

    Take away the water and ya it kind of looks like that. What looks like could be a cliff or mountain , here it is mountain of snow from the plows.

    Is that all ya got, Nate? If that were our yard, I doubt that the top of your spit rail fence would be visible.

    It's n9t how deep the snow is...it's what you do with it that counts. My pile of snow is 5 feet tall. I'm sure that's small potatoes to canuks, but I've had enough fun for one winter.

    I thought I would show a picture of a snow rake for you that don't get snow or very much of it. It is about 18 ft. long. Snuck in a picture of snow on the pick up and one the wife wanted to get the snow falling. I ended up doing my house and the neighbor gals also. By the time I got started the temperature was already above freezing and the snow was really heavy. When it hit the ground it instantly packed down so in areas on the driveway and sidewalks the snow blower would hardy handle it. I also shoveled all the snow off my deck, it just shook when the snow off the roof hit it. So I thought maybe I had better get the weight off it also. Right now it is raining to beat heck and calling for it to freeze. I hope it isn't another case of an ice storm again. This crap can stop anytime. My shoulders are really sore from the pulling on the rake and shoveling.

    It rained here too! Just finished getting the ice off the driveway. If I was married to mother nature I would be a wife-beater about now. Of course with my sore arms and back she'd probably take me out half way through the first round.

    Now it is a case of where is the snow? The temperature went to 48 degrees and has been there over night along with a steady rain. Most of the 17 inches of snow is gone. You can see grass in places. Still supposed to be above freezing into tonight. I don't know if I just wasted my time pulling a lot of the snow of my and the neighbors roof or not. Sure am sore and stiff from it.

    Hey Daris, I saw in the pictures there is an old, stout guy in your yard trying to break into your house! What's that about?? Did the wife call the cops?

    Just kidding! I was in Lake Orion on Wednesday, shoulda called and had lunch!

    The weather was nice at surfaces last year , just a little chilly at night but loved it .
    Haters don't hate! You sound gangsta! Not sure if "they " the hipsters still say that.
    Here it's been raining a lot, had a crazy wind that blew over a big oak and fell on a car, when I got home my wife read about it on Facebook, the lady in the car was posting their headed to hospital.
