    I'd be glad to take some of that off of you Rich. Haven't had a snow like that here in years. I miss it to.

    Man! Be careful out there, you can send a little our way. Don't forget to enjoy the holiday some too. I think you'll more than deserve a rest and the libation of your choosing after all that.

    Rich, This is definitely one of the most beautiful snows we have had in recent years. But it sure was heavy on the shovel. I was going to try a fatty with the electric ECB but the deck is still a tad damp so I am going to skip it.

    Yeah it WAS pretty. But UGH! heavy and DEEP! Here's Bro Marktee cleaning out his drive this AM. All those tall pines were bending with the weight of the snow.

    Man Richtee that looks like the snow that we had here last new years day. If I remember right we got something like 16 or 18 inchs that weekend. It sucked. I spent like 8 hrs at work on new years day moving snow, then I had to come home and finish there. Well stay warm and just remember we are on the down hill side of winter now.

    Unfortunately, that's my Bro's tractor. I have a MUCH smaller John Deere 18 horse. Took over 3 hours to clean the drive. Mine tends to drift, and I have several spots 2 foot deep. My blade is only 2" high. Ah well...
