    Well, at least your flooding is delayed; i had to go be the backup for the basement pump at Mom's yesterday. I'll be making some gutter mods over there this weekend.

    Looks like I will have to put a hold on the move to VT this weekend. Not fun trying to drive a van load of stuff up through the Catskills and into the mountains of VT. Guess I'll just take the TJ out and have some fun in the snow. ;)

    Thanks for the heads up Tango.

    wow...

    Yeah I'm in Stafford, too, and over here on Mountain View Road they plowed the road at 7am. You can't tell now. It's under several inches of snow again already.

    We're really gettin' it here!

    So much for going to the gun shop today...I guess that Marlin 45-70 will have to wait.

    Yeah my plow guy hasn't even attempted to plow my road. If he wasn't a neighbor I would fire him.... But His rates are great last two years are great we spend a whopping $200 for 3 years of plowing can't beat that.

    The biggest problem here is that the state knew this was coming for 2 or 3 days. They didn't get prepared for it at all. The snow was falling for over 12 hours before I seen a single snow plow. Then even when they do plow the state and county don't want the roads messed up so they plow with 1/4 to 1/2" of clearence from the road to the blade of the plow.

    If I owned a skid steer right now I would be making some major bank we are talking profit of $10,000 to $20,000 after fuel and what not for plowing parking lots and HOA streets.

    Well folks at 1300 hours I have lost my polar bear. Lost it so if you see a polar bear with a gold and red collar please return him to me.

    This is 8 am this morning. Now the snow is to the top of the polar bear in this picture.

    This is the dog out playing in the snow at midnight last night. Oh and you can't see the tires on the bike in this picture now.

    It's bad up here in Frederick, MD to. I went to the grocery store at about 7 am and it was drivable but not recommended. I just got back from another outing and the conditions are now what I would call just dangerous. Going out on the roads (even main roads) is a bad idea if not absolutely needed.

    I've lived in Alaska and experienced much worse weather, but they have the infrastructure to deal with it, in the DC area we do not. That and I had Blizzak tires in AK which make a world of difference.

    It's to light for snowmen, can't even make a decent snowball out of it.

    No, not awesome.

    I have not seen this kind of snow ever in the 9 years I have been coming to VA. This area is going to be closed down for 1 to 2 maybe even 3 weeks before getting back to normal operations.

    I am glad I got lots of Cotenelle and enough food for a month or two.
