We've had snow,on & off,all this week,17th-23rd.

Heres the wooly caterpillar that predicts how the
winters will be.Mostly brown,mild winter,mostly black,
cruel winter.

This is taken from the west side,looking over deck.
We are in blizzard warning till 6pm tonight.We
haven't had this much snow in 4-5 years.My
sleds are still sitting.

Looking east,out our bathroom window.Ditches
are full.

We are getting hammered with lots of wet,heavy,sloppy snow.Already 3" or more,with more coming.Predict 6-12" of this slop,not good.

The big storm missed us last night,BUT it is snowing really hard right now!! We don't need this,not now.I am in the spring mode.Think green grass & lots of bugs.

Woke up on 12/1,with MORE SNOW than usual!! Spent about 3 hours blowing it.When I was done,I tried starting my sleds.Nope,no go.I brought them into the garage & worked on them.One had sticky throttle,no brakes & one bad plug.Got that one started & rode it about 6 miles.Got my 70 Magnum 440 out,started right up,put on 3 miles.I'm feeling it today,12/2.I'm done working in the garage for the winter,sleds will sit.12/3 I go in for total right knee replacement,not looking forward to it..Oh well,it sucks to get old.Hope everyone has a good winter & enjoys it.Over & out.

Hey Dan, woke up to 2 feet this morning. Second big snow in a week and 3rd already this year. Was planning on hunting later this week when Muzzle loader season opens but no use. Can't get out in the woods any way and deer are gone, headed south already going to the deer yards(not good for them way too early). I'm sure the groomers will be out this week as the sleds are hitting the trails.

It snowed here 12/28-30th,only got 9" or so.Called the neighbor to come down & blow me out,as my snowblower refused to move.Under the snow was water covered with a layer of ice.I sold 3 of my riders in Dec. 2utp
