Wow. The top one is scary. I'd hate to be stuck in there till the spring thaw.

Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.

That bottm right photo reminds me of a NATO exercize in BARDUFOS, NORWAY in Feb 1974. We used snowshoes to walkout ofour second floor barracks windows. A C-141 had to be left behind with a cracked wing due to snowfall and over-fueling...

I just came in from doing some more shoveling. I started on clearing the garage roof yesterday evening, stopped when I got too darn tired. Today my kid came and finished the roof for us but the snow was up to the eaves of the garage at about 7 feet. Problem was it was leaning on the walls and windows so I went out to clear the windows before they broke. Our front deck now has about 7 feet of snow on it too so I have to get that cleared before the deck collapses, we have shrubbery that is buried under there too and I would like to try saving that, BUT I also have 3 to 5 feet on the barn roof to worry about. Not enough hours in the day.

I'd be there for ya Doug, ifin you were closer.Had a tree fall across my drive and land ontop of my flat bed trailer. Good neighbors came with their saws and had it cleared in less than 45 min.

They are all perfect

Reminiscent of an episode as a kid. We were snowed in at my grandparents farm on Lake Michigan and got to see what "lake effects" snow really was. I remember my brother and I being lowered from a bedroom window to shovel our way to the front door and dig it out so the grownups could get at the tractors with buckets on the front. One of them, a big old rusty thing with iron lug wheels, was parked right next to the front door in anticipation of the snow. It was completely buried. We had to poke around with the shovels to find it and dig it out.

Of course, it was a hand crank. It took them hours to get it started, once it was uncovered.

Seems like someone lives close to a lake that hasn't frozen yet. That much snow already, with three months to go. Major bummer!

If you're not a liberal when you're 25, you have no heart. If you're not a conservative by the time you're 35, you have no brain.

Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. BF

Proper prior planning prevents piss poor performance.

If criticism had any merit, the skunk would have been extinct years ago.
