I'm sitting here in Nova Scotia, in the good ol Maritimes, and the ground is bare with temps well above freezing. My old plow truck has been ready to go for almost a month. If this keeps up I will have to find another source of play dough.

That pic with the snow swirl on the roof looks awfully doctored to me. Snow would naturally tend to drift in on the lea side. But I guess that stranger things have happened.

PJ just reported that a huge eucalyptus tree fell in between his house and the neighbors house. It was their's but it gave PJ's house a lot of shade in the evening hours.

Damage to both patio roofs, more to the neighbor's than PJ's. He lives in San Marcos, CA 15 miles north of San Diego limits. Non stop rains have loosened up the ground a lot.

Pictures later when he has time.

The last one with the trench up to the door looks a lot like a typical winter for the woman who hangs around here and me in the 60s at the Kotzebue, AK FAA station. I rode my snomobile over the roof of one of our flat top houses there once. Sure adifference with my current location, had a nice ride on the 1800 today. The temperature was a balmy 60F.

Bought my first house in MiWuk, CA in 1989 as a fixer-upper. First winter, a dougfir fell over, took my side deck off and crackedpart of the ridgeline above the kitchen. Month later, we got 10 ft of snow in 7 days in March (freak storm) That destroyed my roof, me and my brother shoveled the roof clear then had to cut steps in the snow so we could get out of the house. That night, an old liveoak tree about 8ft in diameter fell across the road and crushed my neighbor's houseFLAT due to snow load in branches. Luckily the neighbors had left that morning to pick up their daughter in Sacramento. Took two days to get that bad boy out of the road.

My brother and I replaced the roof and decks (insurance coughed up the $$) that summer, septic system clogged, had to dig new sewer lines and install a s**t pump. Underpinning of the house started caving in due to new roof load. Found out the house was built by a doctor in the '50's with no permit. He built the whole house on fill dirt. Underpinning and supports were supported by tree limbs and beer cans. After replacing the underpinning, something else went wrong (forgot what it was) andin my anger, we moved and gave the house to the bank, filed bankruptcy. Actually I wanted to burn the dam thing down but my ol' lady talked me out of it. New house was below the snowline so the first thing I did was pile all my snowshovels in the backyard and set them on fire. Roasted marshmallows!! Next day it snowed two feet there. Go figure!!!

God bless,
