Good morning everyone. Mike spent yesterday snow blowing to keep our driveway clear. The town did a great job and our road is down to bare pavement. Harrison and Mike were sledding last night in the driveway next door (house is vacant).

Good morning everyone. The power came back around 1am and it's nice and warm again. :D My office is working from home again today. Poor Mike is out finishing the cleanup. He did a good amount yesterday but didn't dare go back out knowing he couldn't warm up afterwards. The birds are happy we filled the feeder yesterday - they're taking numbers for a spot. :lol:

Good morning! It's a usual Friday work day here. Nice temps coming on and no sn*w. Sorry for all of you buried in it. At least the power seems to be back on for everyone.

Good morning. 10* here. George coaxed me away from my wine and couch last night to go outside to begin clean up. Neighbor did the side walk with the snow blower but we wanted to get his car off the street so the plows could clean the street. Wasn't too bad, but I'm sure we've got more to do now that the plows came through. I may even get to the cat house today.

Good morning. Near zero right now with a pretty good breeze. Going to suck getting to appointments today! Glad to hear power is on for everyone. Hope it stays that way!

Those hats are really helpful, aren't they Karen.

Have a great day!

Morning, we decided to go out last night and do the driveway, porch and the sidewalk between us and the house next door. the little electric blower did the job. todays plan was to do sidewalk to the corner but they piled all the plowed crap there, no sense in shoveling a walk to nowhere :lol: still need to do the area around the mailbox so the truck can get to it.

glad that those who lost power have it back, stay warm everyone.

Good Morning!!! We survived the first storm of 2018 with no ill effects. Ran my 5hp John Deere through the 16" of white poo on the driveway last night while the temps were still in the mid 20'sF. Luckily the wind blew lots of the snew away from the back porch and the cars so it wasn't too bad. Even the pile at the end of the driveway was managable. I took full advantage of the wind to blow the snew downwind as much as possible. Today the sun is shining but temps are in the low teens now and will drop below 0 overnight tonight. I'll get more cleanup done later this morning.
Stay safe and warm everyone and have a great Friday!!!

Good morning, not as chilly here either it was predicted to be negative with -15 windchill but car never went below zero on the way to work & when I got out it wasn't bad.
In main office today, over to mum's for lunch then Walmart after work.
We will be doing an outdoor farmers market tomorrow :shock: , will be wearing our thermals & Carhart coveralls.

Stay warm everyone!

I can't even imagine what y'all are dealing with up there, although we did have a few big sn*wstorms growing up in VA. It is in the low 20s here now and calling for a chance of freezing rain early Monday morning which might cancel school for the first day back. Matthew has 3 classes at the local college this coming semester (he'll graduate a full semester ahead!), so we'll have to listen out for those closings/delays.

Mike made it home last night and in a good mood, so that's always nice. He's usually so tired and often stressed about one thing or another.
