I second what Sonja says "OH MY!!"
The wind has died down and now the snow is just falling, a huge relief.
You can blog green all you want, but it's a lie! White-out here for about an hour.
I'll be blogging again soon, just to keep things balanced.
Blogging Green again soon.....
Some nice looking snow piles you've got there... We need more snow pics! The green will be here all too soon as it is!
Hey Erik, that's a good way to look at things. Once that sweltering August heat invades, we'll be dreaming of these piles to roll around in.
You're going to run out of places to put all of that snow...Nice utility body on your plow truck. Plus it weighs more than just a regular bed.
Richard, that's the biggest issue around here now and I start in early winter keeping that in mind, opening things up as wide as I can. This week's melting temperatures will help settle what's here, only helping the situation. These piles will need places to drain.Thanks, it was the utility body that in that first split second of seeing the ad put me off but I quickly recognized the value.
Coop:You must know by now that we are all feeling sorry for youbobRiding the Wet Coast
Well that wasn't what I was after Bob. I stayed home today and just now came in from Plow Session #2 today. It's 34F out there and the sun is trying to peak through. Very pretty and as long as there are places for me to stack it, we'll be fine. The potential for a bunch more is still with us, but as always, I remain hopeful :)
Coop:I hope that one day soon, your snow will stop. I can't imagine having to buy a truck with a snow blade, a snow blower and winter clothes. Then there's the issue of your flooding driveway.I've never been anywhere with so much snow as you have right now. I don't know how you do itbobRiding the Wet Coast
Ick blah with all the snow this year. Are you guys going to be flooding when it all melts?
We hope not but the potential is higher than we'd like it. It was in the 40's today, the banks and piles are smaller than they were yesterday. A gift to us would be a long, gradual melt. Evaporation takes away a surprising amount and that would be good too.
White on white. Spring will come when it wants. I hope you get your gradual melting. I would hate to have your driveway float away.
Thanks Keith, how the warm-up happens will determine our dry future :) The last couple of days there was melting here, doing us a service by condensing our huge piles.Inch an hour snow right now, big winds tonight. We'll have 'notable' for today's entry in the diary.
Coop our temps are predicted to rise here for the next day or so ... with lots of rain. Our snowbanks are incredibly high, if it melts too fast I think we are in for some high water ... Get out the boots!
Shirt sleeves / no coats were seen the last days so there is hope for us yet though snow=water. I left work early and was here to walk out to the mailbox this afternoon, happy to see some exposed brown and smaller piles on the way. Percy was in a good enough mood to follow me out, even in the snow/rain. She's hopeful too. :)
