Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow....

Recommended Posts

Amazing how much snow melted around here in South-Central Shoreline CT after a mild day like yesterday (Tuesday, 2/12).

Also amazing, however, is that our town's schools are closed for a third straight day today (Wednesday 2/13).

Seems a little excessive, but I guess not totally unexpected in today's world (of hyper-sensitivity to lawsuit potential, if God-forbid, a schoolbus accident were to happen).

I am fairly sure that our town has already cancelled the February break too.

Kids are going to be in school until July at this rate!

Here in MN we get 2 feet of snow and schools are only delayed 2 hours. The argument the school has for not closing is "You live in Minnesota.....":rolleyes:. But on a good note, I did see daylight on my 6am drive to work. That means spring has almost sprung.

Opened the front door Saturday morning and before I could stop her one of the Shepherds bounded out and within seconds had sunk up to her neck - so here I am barefoot, in sweats and a T-shirt shoveling to get to her before she panicked and hurt herself! Well they eventually made some of their own paths - proof there is strength in numbers!!

That reminds me of this video, posted a few years ago:

Great video West! My oldest (ten year old) GSD - the one who got herself in a jam, however, prefers to watch the snow from the comfort of her (was once mine.. :confused: ) living room chair...

Here in KY we get 2" of snow and in several rural counties schools are closed for anywhere from 1-3 days because they can't afford snow plows or salt for their roads so they simply cancel school until it melts off the roads.... :confused:

Well it has finally come the the North East. A coating today and 29F at 9:00AM DST. The Weather folks are calling for 51F tommorow. Looks like our friends out west are having a time of it with delays, cancelations, and car pile ups and such. Everybody be safe. Dandy Dave!

Danny, No it doesn't have 4 wheel drive but it does have a big Ben wrecker attachment on it with a 2 ton cast iron weight hanging off of it and a 2' X' 2" X3' concrete block on the deck plate.

I was pulling something and it did a 3' wheely before the chain broke.

We had 9" of snow Saturday night into Sunday; another 2"-5" is forecast for tonight. It started snowing about 5:00PM. This morning, the low was -10° F, about the coldest it has been in a couple of years. What gets me is the media makes it seem like it's never been this cold or snowed before.

Well Roger, At least you can winch youself out if you get stuck and something to tackle to is handy. I use to drive a 1957 FWD that had a 501 Red Diamond engine. It got about 3 Miles a gallon if the snow was not to heavy. Dandy Dave!

That small back window on the 28 A must be in a pickup

Only two years in responding...sorry Dave. It was a 1928 A pickup that had been turned into a short stakebed....
