I’m just SE of Pittsburgh PA, looks like 20 inches. Watching Pittsburgh news
4th heaviest snow fall on record, not in this order, 1890, 1950 and 1993.
Power flickered a few times last night but luckily never went out.
I shoved some yesterday but could not keep up with the snow. I’ve only got about 1/3 of it done today. I may be able to get out by Tuesday.
I may think about a snow blower next year. I’ve almost 63 and my drive way is about 180 feet.

Now that the snow has stopped I can now move on to worrying about what is going to happen when all this snow melts. I have a bad feeling about flash flood warnings and floating down the river on top of my house. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Hey Crow, do what I did to remove snow, move to Ft. Lauderdale!

Skipping it again this year. Golfing, fishing, and giving our livers what-for in Boynton Beach for a few days. I could use an excuse to run off and bust some caps just about any time, if you know a reputable place.......

We got 18" by the time the sun came out again. I made a video of me shooting and the dog in it but it was so bright out I didn't notice my camera was set to "compact" so it is of very bad quality. You can see how deep it is though.


I've always liked how where there is no wind, the snow can pile up on the thinnest of things!

That would be Revere Gun Range,
601 Northeast 28th Street, Pompano Beach 33064.

It's a real dump, you'll love it! No restrictions on double taps and rapid fire.

Let me know what date and we can wad up some targets. I'll even let you shoot Fenrir if you're up to it!

You traveling with your pistola? I can supply everything else, hearing and sight protection, targets and I can even see if I can round up some target ammo if you want. How big a hole is in the muzzle of your plastic fantastic?

Don't back out of this invite like you did last year! I'll hunt you down like the dog you are! Airedale.

LAST year we flew down, and I was still restricted from driving onn'a count'a only having one arm. Add to that I was helping my Bro-In-Law and his wife unfork their new condo, so I was pretty much a hostage. Hell, I was getting up at 6:00AM just so I could have the damned pool to myself.....
The gang is heading that way already, by car and plane and cruise ship, and I'll have a better idea of availabilities in the next couple days, but I figure a meet-up is in order. Don't worry about providing anything except for directions. By the time the women are done shopping, any expenses I incur will be an afterthought.

Tango & Yunus:

Those photos look MISERABLE!! Damn snow, pretty at first but it can be so very dangerous. Y'all be careful out there!

It'll be 59 degrees and mostly fair skies today, so I'll be off to the range later this morning to shoot my new (to me) 6.5 Jap T-38.

Yesterday was glorious in the Houston area, clear and cool but not cold. But Mrs. TX and I were stuck inside all day taking our CHL course.
