    This is only the second day I have missed at work because of snow in 15 years. I usually snowmobile in but didn't bother today, turns out they closed the plant anyway. We have a drift 5' high and 300 feet long across and down the length of our driveway. I don't do snow removal other than my own either. I have a neighbour with 100 hp tractor usually do the driveway. I also have a 28" walk behind that I play with. Time to do the books I guess.... yuck.

    Its a beautiful day here in Central New York. A nice sunny day, temps in the low 20's with 20-30 mph northwest winds gusting up to 50mph. The windchild is around -50 degrees. There is only a couple of inches of snow where I live but there is plenty more up north. Just enough to go snowmobiling, but more would be better.

    It just doesnt get any better than that!

    We have a place in Florida, my Dad called this morning to ask how things are? He knows right well we are up to our a**es in it. I think he spends half his time there praying for bad weather up here. Last week he called while it was storming here, he was doing some cement work on the walkways.. just stopped for another cold drink and thought he should see how we are doing....

    My wife and I just got back from a trip to Cincinnati to visit. It was 18 deg when we left Cinti. It was 75 deg when we landed in Ft myers. We lived all our lives in Cinti until 2 1/2 years. That trip just made me sure of why we moved south. I'm sorry, but I don't know how or why we put up with that for so long. It's great to live in shorts and tee's all year long! 300 plus days of sunshine a yr. I'll take it.
