    If we don't get snow soon, there will be nothing to melt to fill our lake/reservoir.

    If I'm going out in a blaze of rainless worry, I'd prefer this to be my swan song.

    It's never winter here, except maybe at night, where it might drop down to 65 instead of 75.

    Nope, just cheap steep property.:rolleyes:

    But, my backyard is 7 square sections of designated roadless national forest land that includes the highest mountain for about 100 miles or so.:cool:

    While I'm at it, check out Audley Freed at 1:55. OMG, that sends shivers down my spine I like it so much.

    Like last winter, here in sw OH -

    we just have a flirt w snow, barely any accumulation and not cold enough to stay over a day or two. spit snow today like some drama queen, but didn't amount to anything!

    I absolutely enjoy and love winter. Doesn't even really get cold like it use to

    I'm suing that young swedish girl!!

    My dad was stationed in Minot about 1965. I remember stepping off into a snow drift and just disappearing. My mom dragged me out. Snow would pile against the front of the Air Force-provided two story house and I remember reaching out of the second story window and grabbing a handful of snow.

    Oh man. Maybe Mrs. Steerforth and I should talk about Hawaii. I could live like that. And I miss beaches.

    Not to hijack the thread ... okay maybe for a moment, but hey, I just noticed the avatars of @sudogeek and @Torren61 are very similar. Coincidence?

    New England winters are tough. I mean, they’re so short, I’m amazed people have the fortitude to hack it through seven months of sweat, pollen, mosquitos, and ticks. Usually though, we’re skiing again by Thanksgiving weekend, so we can get through the holiday season without ever setting foot in a retail establishment. Well, sometimes a ski shop. Or a music store.
