    Hey Guys,
    I don't know what you think, but I've lived in Michigan for over 50yrs., and I love Michigan, but this weather is killing me. We've had 24" of snow already, and believe it or not, winter doen't start til the 21 of Dec. This is crazy, I've been freezing my butt off. This morning when I went to work, it was 10 above zero. I have cleaned my driveway out so many times, I'm at the point of saying, God put it there, let God take it away! I have a feeling though if I did that, I could wait til the 15th of March or maybe april.
    I just thought I would grip a little.

    Sparky, Im right with ya-

    Im under about 18 inches of snow with 3-4 foot drifts.

    more expected this week, and of all things, rain by the weekend.

    It ought to be a fiasco.

    LOL

    Be strong bro!

    This weather falls somewhere between miserable and unbearable. I hardly ever leave the homefront during this time of year except to get essentials. LOL. I miss the weather in North Carolina where there were always a couple of Indian summer days a month during the winter. I said I was going to try some winter catfishing this year. Yeah, right. This weather has proven that I told an outright lie! :0a13: I told my wife that we will be using the salt sparingly, and put it down only when the forecast gives us a week or so break on the snow. The big thing here is the postal worker won't deliver your mail if there is ice on the walk and driveway. Maybe if I close my eyes and make a wish I'll magically end up elsewhere.LOL.

    Take care,
    Vic Brown

    Darn you Vic,
    That Majic worked! All that crap ended up in my driveway, sidewalk, porch, deck, Hot tub, & lane to my workshop. There is a tail going around about a warm up on Friday. I hope so, Tiffany & Part-Time should be home by then.
