This stuff is a mix of Snow and Sleet, guess it's going to be another busy night pulling people off the road into our yard again. It's suppose to come down all night long, and the temps are staying at 32 all day. As soon as I clear the drive another inch has accumulated. Am I the only one having all of this fun today?

All I plan to clear is the snow around the mailbox where VDOT plow piled it up. Need those retirement checks to be delivered.

That looks like fun! :)

We had a freezing rain/ice storm warning last night, so yesterday afternoon I went out and made sure the genny fired up and ran O.K. All was well. We had about a 1/2 inch accumulation of ice on the trees by 2:00a.m, but when I got up this morning it had switched to rain and washed it all away. Been raining and drizzling most of the day so far.

It is now changing over to ice / rain here too. I am hoping it will do the same, and wash away the rest of this stuff tonight. I'm ready for spring.

Not me. I wanted to go ice fishing a few more times this year... only got to go three times so far. What I don't want is three months of mud season. Yuk! :p

That's something I've never done. I'll bet it's a blast. You have the little hut deal / drill and all? Or just walk out drill a hole and fish.

Thought I may as well add this to the picture gallery since I'm at it. Looking out after the storm from front area of our living room, a little on the dark side, but you get the idea. Our card and Pool playing friends house to the left, he walks over and hangs out sometimes on the weekends or during bad snow storms when we get snowed in.
