      Thanks Ghost, I needed that after doing snow removal today. What a little piece of paradise you have there!

      We got between 8" - 10". It blew a bit overnight so it was hard to tell. I was out at 6:30 am getting it done then went to work till 12:30. Came home and finished up.

      This was at 2:00 pm when half of it had already melted.

            You have to account for shrinkage in your tape measure.

                Sunny and 65 here in Land of the People today. Mowed the fescue lawn again yesterday. Sprayed pre-emergent today on the Bermuda grass.

                  We had a light, slushy snowfall today, first one of the season. It's still above freezing though so it's melting about as fast as it collects.

                  Couple of tons of wet snow slid off the metal roofs today. Loudly...

                    Family coming over all get a Hatchet and a chainsaw before dinner.

                        It's not too late to bring the top 7 feet into the house and decorate it. :)

                        Glad no body got hurt...

                                Got 9" here in beautiful Downtown Lisle! No big deal. Let winter get it all shook out!
                                The sun is sticking around a little more every day and that feels good. Come on summer!

                                  hope all you guys back (north) east are doing well as could be expected
                                  I was watching some of the 'weather channel' coverage of late

                                  We had a week & a 1/2 of that BS, high winds then big ass snow flakes
                                  it settled down & the next night snow again,
                                  wind & sleet the next day, making shit really icy
                                  then it warms to just about 40* for a couple of days,
                                  during the day & back to 20's at night
                                  so it partially melts
                                  then it sluffs of the roof & makes a mess of all the
                                  streets/driveways/decks etc.
                                  black ice overnight, makes for fun trips to town
                                  then they spread the pumice/volcanic stuff all over (we don't do salt here)
                                  then snow again the next day, messy/dirty truck now
                                  it just kept coming
                                  we got 2ft-2.5ft (probably near 4ft of actual snowfall, melt & refreeze etc.)
                                  or so accumulated that stuck around, in 9 to 10-ish days
                                  we got something like 12+ft up the hill, 20-30 miles or so

                                  skiers are loving it, me not so much
                                  The older I get the less I like dealing with snow, what it ruins too
                                  I use to love the snow
                                  Now, I hate shoveling snow, have I mentioned that ?

                                  mostly gone now, but more next week :BangHead:
                                  it'll be like that from now tell probably mid-March

                                  I'd still rather be here than back there :bananadance:

                                  stay warm & dry my friends'
                                  throw another log on the fire
                                  or a lump of coal for the assholes :bananaweed:

                                  I see NYC & DC just shut down, with a couple of inches

                                  glad it's not like that here

                                    It’s bad in Orange County, My daughter is stuck doing a triple at the rehab center. Most of the nurses and nurses aids couldn’t get to work. Will be starting my third session of Cleaning the driveway soon.
