And I wasn't picking you out, because we know better than that.
Actually, I have a skid steer Case 1845C with a 10' pusher, a Cat 955H and a Allis Chalmers 190 with an 11' blade, double chained, weighted by a 5' boom mower system, with a heated cab and Pandora and we get this c rap now and again that's life in this neck of the woods..... but please let me just whine a little ... pretty PLEASE. A little xxx winter warmer and some good snacks and away we go.... Life is just a bowl of cherries..... I'm nearly 70 and my days of wrestling with this stuff with a bent snow shovel are over but the biggest luxury is coming home to a toasty coal heated house. :D

Well they say 16"- 22" and we're ready, got coal, got food, got each other (in case we run out of coal :lol: ) Lighten up folks because every time it snows you save money heating with coal.

So glad I shoveled the driveway today. It'll make the 6 inches we're getting tonight easier to shovel in the morning. :mad: not to mention the snow it looks like we'll get Friday night into Saturday. The Radar Boys are already talking tightly spaced isobars. Looks like yet another Nor'Easter a coming our way :mad: :mad: :mad:

We got an additional 3 or 4 inches of snow on top of some rain last night. That was enough to cancel school for the day again today. I did manage to dig my car out yesterday and drive by the school where I park the bus to see if I could dig it out but they hadn't even touched the parking lot and the snow plow had blocked the entrance when he did the street. I'll check again today before yet another winter weather event moves into area with more snow tonight.

I'm getting bummed about the wetter than recent winters we are having. We have used all our snow days and now are adding make up days to the end of the school year. Our school system already gets out in late June due to an after Labor day start; if the weather keeps up we won't be out until July. Even given that, they made the decision not to touch our spring break days due to the fact many families have already made reservations for the holiday. I really don't want school to go any longer than it already is.

Stay warm, take care, Lisa

From what I have read on this forum a man with sympathy who is no longer living had sympathy for you,or did you forget ?? Just take a stroll down to your basement & look at the boiler setting there keeping you warm,a gift from God !!!
Gimme a friggin break Windy! This has got nothing to do with Jim's generosity, and shame on you for even trying to spin it that way!!

There;s a thing called PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY that is sorely lacking in today's society. The people who have NONE are the ones I COULDN'T GIVE 2 SHITS ABOUT.

If my neighbor needs a generator, I'll bring one over. WTF am I supposed to do about the rest of the world??? I'm only one man!

greater confidence than an armed man."

It does not seem to matter how I turn the phone Fred.... :( The upload does what it wants to do. I would have to create a folder and import it into my computer and then manipulate it with the computers programing. Then delete the folder. Crap on that! Just turn your head and don't fall over.... :P
Morning right back at ya.

At this time, AccuWeather is saying 1-3 inches tonight through tomorrow here. However,.....they said they were "afraid" the storm track might enable the storm to change into a Nor'Easter. Again? Really? Enough already. If it does, you New Englanders and Mainers might be in for a lot more slop :o
Is Maine New England or a country unto itself??? :D

I got HAMMERED yesterday into this morning. By the time I woke up today we had another 20" on top of the 14" we got yesterday and that was on top of the 13" we got from last week's storm. And now they are calling for another 1-2" for Saturday on top of that.

If anyone hates Old Man Winter more it's got to be me. I wish this guy would die in a fire.

Double YOWZA! You win! You win! (Sorry to say) Gosh.... be careful moving it all.

We got 8 or 9 inches, then sleet that took it down to 7 or 8inches, but weighs like 14 inches. Then rain rain rain, took it down to 6" but now it weighs the same as 36 inches. I usually spend an hour or so snow blowing if we get 6 or 8 inches. I just spent almost 5 hours out there fighting Old Man Winter. I've had enough!
