I'm pretty sure that milk and toilet paper sales were down so marketing cooked up another fear campaign. What did they name this one? Winter storm Beelzebub?

Holy crap it's winter, and it gets cold and snows? It must be global warming and those evil fur trappers! Yeah yeah, that's the ticket!

It's snowing right now here, and it's January, I'm OK with that....I wish it would snow in deer season again.


Keep your boots dry and your powder too.

I remember when a fur check was reality.....now I'm just trapping for the love of it.

Best Regards,

JT

Yeah, wonder what all of these folks are going to do when a real storm comes through ?
Because of the drifts, I'm not sure what we got here, maybe 4-5". Heading out in another hour or so to plow with the tractor......I'll certainly get a better view of the snowfall.

We got about 4" but the freaking snow plow put about 12" on my sidewalks. If the butt hole would slow down a bit It wouldn't be a problem.

Last night we got about 5" in Northern Indiana, but this morning rain has knocked it down to about 1.5" of gross sludge.

Right now we are getting freezing rain... everything is a sheet of ice and 33 to34 degrees. Got up early to go to store and then looked out. I haven't seen any cars to speak of moving around …. Only hope is supposed to get in 40s today … so hopefully it will.

A few inches of really fluffy snow but foot deep drifts in the driveway now a guy needs to figure where the old drifts are when he drives through the new drifts. Less wind but still windy it was howling all night long, time to throw the birds a bucket of feed

One thing these fronts and storms do to me is make my back and joints ache.

It aint your sidewalk and his job is to get the snow off the street.

I suppose we got a solid 5 inches here without pulling out the tape measure

Well it is Beav's sidewalk to pay for and maintain even though it is on city property. Always wondered how that works.
Kind of like I have a half mile of road frontage on my property that I pay taxes on but it has a public road and utilities on it foe the benefit of everyone.
Back to the original post, about 5 inches here.

LOL, Zim
