We got our fair share of the white stuff this weekend....I've got close to 18 inches in the yard... :naive:

The real bummer on the deal is I have paint booth time reserved for next weekend.....I dought I'll be sliding in for that now....
Their saying a real cold snap is on the way....maybe the roads will stay solid enough that I can still get down there.....sure would like to get the painting done so I can start putting everything back together... :winkgrin:

We have some over here also.........But the nice thing is that we know it will MELT before the day is gone.
It is the best of both worlds, wake up with the snow and by the time the kids are tired of it then it is all melted.

Hey Ken, we got a couple of inches here in North seattle, too. No problem getting around though....having a miniature horse in the back yard worked out better than having a Jeep in the driveway :: Just hooked him up to a large sled and away we went around the neighborhood :: I wish that I knew how to post pictures (and had a computer that was able to do it :

We got a nice covering up here too. Figured I could either shovel the driveway off or my duaghter and I could take the quads out and spin around in the fields. Needless to say, there's still snow on the driveway!

I had a choice between studded tires and a 4x4 just before Winter started... I bought the Bronco. With all of the snow here, I'm glad I did. When those snow plows go through the neighborhood they leave large walls of snow at the bottom of my driveway. It's kinda cool flooring the gas and flying over and through the snow piles :: to get outta my driveway.

I don't remember. That morphine drip pretty much blotted out the event.

You be careful shoveling that snow. I know that you're an ol'fart and there are a lot of serious accidents associated with shoveling snow; maybe it's time to consider moving a little bit South..

Remember how it was back in the '60s with all the Flower Children? I think the only difference is that we wear robes and slippers instead of beads and sandals now.. :rolleyes:

Well here in Bellingham the temp has not broken 30 since last Wednesday, currently at 10am Tuesday its 14 with snow and ice still left from the weekend. :peeping:

Most amazing thing I saw yesterday was college girls wearing heeled boots in the ice, stupidity runs supreme I guess. Watching them fall on their a$$ was a bonus. :rofl: :joker:
