Winter day at my house!

Finally another day of snow, wind, and cold.





Got to do some plowing...YAHOO!











The "herd".



The view from the back deck.







The front yard.







The plow guy.



2nd winter on the Duratracs with 22,000 miles on them and still holding snow!!! I will buy them again when these wear out!!!



Whoring the Toy!







And the sun came out. Here's the view from my bedrooom window.





Just killing some boredom. Thanks for looking!

Sometimes I wish we had snow around here. Even in Lake Tahoe there is almost no snow this year. Really weird winter in Northern California.

You have an awesome house and property BTW.

We've had the same here temp wise. Felt like spring last week, got down to 17 last night and windy putting the wind chill down to like 9. But it's sunny here today, no chance of precip. Got up to 40 with the sun. But it's been a very mild winter, even for us down here. So much so that today is the first fire I've lit in the fireplace.

But I remember last winter on TW reading everyone bitching about all the snow. I can imagine getting sick of it if you have it all the time. We're lucky if we get a covering most years. Sometimes we get a little snow but the roads are too warm to stick. Maybe an inch or two once a year if that. It's like a vacation for us. I know we get made fun of, but it's just so rare for us and we don't have the equipment to handle a lot since we don't get it often enough. So anyway the point is we look forward to it. Haven't even had a chance of it this year. Usually we have a chance a couple of times a year by now and everyone goes crazy.

It was an awesome day for me. I love getting to plow. Carhart bibs over a sweatshirt, skicoat and helmet with a breathshield actually has me sweating comfortably! Cleared the snow off the deck and two small porches, got a couple days worth of wood in too.

I also did 2 no-heat service calls today too.

Coming in from the cold to a hot wood stove is nice too.

I do wish that winter only lasted a few months instead of six. Not complaining about this one though, I don't ski or snow-mobile, (it's a self-preservation thing...speed kills), so a few warm days is OK with me.

So anyhow, no misery here for me, but I'm not that smart, I don't mind the cold that much.

Today was a gift, a Blessing even, Thanks Lord!.

Now I get to crash with my wife!

Thanks for looking y'all!
