Winter returned

Post by milspec6 on Sun Feb 01, 2015 11:11 am

Woke up today to 7 inches of snow with a real-feel temp of -4 and wind gusts over 35 mph. Mad

I had planned on spending the day cleaning up the van and working on the box truck project now that I had the whole day off. I guess I will spend it now working the shovel and firing up that prehistoric snow blower that I have....built in 1969 and shoots flames, but I love the thing as it acts just as mad at the snow as me. Very Happy

I'll save you a snow ball....who wants one?

I do have a great later model, but it is too pretty for this storm.

Forget the Super Bowl, just give the midwest a blizzard and everyone is happy.

That was all you heard yesterday, "Is it sticking yet". "I've heard over a foot tonight". "I just bought the new snow blower". "I better get to the store and stock up"....it was the only topic in town.

I just finished for now, cleared my driveway (100 x 40) of drifts well over a foot and didn't eat a trash can nor lose a toe. cheers   Sorry, no video, I needed both hands on the helm for this one.

Still, I will have to do it again later tonight when it blows back in, but it will not be as bad....just a whole lot colder and darker. pale

For those enjoying the sun, here is the view off my porch....should make you glad to be where you are.

I wish I could....another 6 inches coming Wed. Minus 18 also in the forecast that night.

That groundhog better give me the right answer or I'm going to be wearing it as a hat.

I never complain about the heat, it never bothers me, but your point is taken.

I have 2 heaters in the van running on high and it is only able to hold about 45 degrees in the day and 36 at night in this weather. I had to go out and winterize to make sure it survives.
