At least you get to visit with her. Mine's an hour away and the roads have been really bad lately. :(

White Sand.

Beautiful white washed landscape.

Chores

Then play, play, play.

Crisp and alert in cool air.

Winter beats the just above freezing bone chilling rain of late fall, all hollow. 10,000 to .00001.

Nice pics Skip. At least some of us are having fun this winter. I would actually like to see some white stuff in person this year. Yet another winter storm fizzled out this past weekend.

I don't see any tree limbs broken or down, Zinger?!?!?!?! Didn't you guys get any of the ice last month? In addition to the 150+ calls we ran that week, I lost 6 "big" trees in the yard (four in the front, one in the side, and one way in the back). The one in the side dropped a couple of BIG limbs, and if I had parked the camper where others had suggested, it might have been a mess....

All are "soft" maple. Know anyone that needs some firewood? I've already got 4+ cords cut....

Careful what you wish for. There's an Alberta clipper forming right now. It's gonna miss us here in southern Alberta, but we'll do our best to steer it in your direction. :lol:

Good camp wood, yes! But I've got enough for the next ten years, ESPECIALLY now that there are all of these rules about transporting firewood... My son has his 30' on a semi-perm site in Schroon Lake. I'm sure that he and his buddy's will take some of it, but I was thinking about putting on Craig's List just to try to get rid of it! Even if it's for FREE!

I'd love to have your firewood, but I don't think either of us would get it across the border.

& no snow in PA????

I remember skiing on nearby hill when a teenager in winter in PA, central PA.

It doesn't snow around here like it did was I was a kid. They blame it on global warming. The low tonight is -5. What's so warm about that around here? If it's gotta be that cold, I want snow with it.

Yeah, you're about the same as me. Per http://www.worldwidemetric.com/metcal.htm -5'% = -20.56'C. We're @ -22 with -31 windchill

Now, to get snow it has to warm up a bit. We're going to -7'C/19,4'F tomorrow. Then -1/30 Monday with snow, periods of snow.

However, the way our forecast storms have gone of late, I'll believe it when I see. I can still walk to my camper just using feet,

We've got about 4.5 feet of snow so far this winter. Here's a recent pic from my front yard. Thankfully we had a fairly signifigant melt between Christmas and New Years otherwise I don't know where I'd put the snow anymore. :)

We certainly do...quite a lot actually. Just today alone we got about 6-8 cm of it....which reminds me, I need to go out and shovel it again.

It's irritating when you get dumped on by lake effect and look at the radar to see that 50 Kilometers either side of you they're getting nothing at all.

Be happy you have the snow to give your house extra insulation PP. Where I am now, the wind seems to swirl the snow away from the house. & after it snows, it melts. I can still walk to my camper on feet, not snowshoes.

Funny, Limey! :lol: But our experience was much like the Pilot's - we bought a big honkin' snowblower the beginning of last season and sure enough - TONS of snow!! (Both winters.)

Little Kopit brings up a good point. Last month when we were hitting the -20 range, I was sure glad for that 6-8" of snow on our roof (the rest having melted or fallen off), as it made for some nice extra insulation. Probably saved us a good $50 or more on our gas bill for January!

Nice, Cavy!
Well, the light's at the end of the tunnel; 60 degrees yesterday & today, and dry, so we gave into temptation and uncovered the camper today. Earliest we've ever done it. Got inside, and no signs of mice or leaks. :) It's still not going much of anywhere for a while - those plow mounds are glaciers by now!

I went over to check on our fiver today and all was well. It's still parked half-cocked in the middle of the lot where I had to drop it after getting stuck on the return of our new-years trip.

Foolishly I decided to drive into the yard and see if I could pin up to *finally* push it back into it's spot. Unfortunately there was still quite a lot of snow, and uh, lets just say it was good I have roadside assistance. :D

Funny - just went through this thread again, and thought my memory was failing - I KNEW I didn't post a picture of our uncovered camper yet this spring. (We uncovered it last Friday.) Then I realized the picture was from last year. :) Same view, same plow berms. Only today we have some more snow on it - fortunately just an inch or so. We did have a mouse inside this year, though. :( Not too much damage, but a disappointment, after years w/o getting them in. We also had left 2 cans of pop inside - guess they were under a chair & we didn't notice them when we emptied the trailer in the fall. (BIG boo-boo!) :( Carpet where they sat is still damp, and some woodwork-trim water (pop) damage. Not good. Guess we'll be treating that floor in a year or two; meanwhile I'll have to shampoo that carpet, or we'll get ants galore before long.
