Up here in the NE we have had 70 inches of snow in 18 days.
I'm sick of shoveling. There is no place to put it.
I can't wait for Spring . I guess I'll go out and shovel again. WTF

Hate to say it, Pete, but we're sending more your way.

Not my fault!

Hang in there, play some uke, and be careful with your back.

I'd just string up that shovel and get out in the driveway and PLAY

My sister just moved out here to S Oregon from Michigan. Our temps the last few weeks have been mid 40s to mid 60s and a lot of sun. She made a good choice.

Please , DO NOT send any more snow , we are full. I'm warming up , having a cup of tea, agonizing about going back out to shovel again. After a few hours of shoveling last nite and an hour and a half of more shoveling at 6 this morning , one car is able to get out of the driveway. The snow piles are well over 6 feet , even higher next door ( maybe 12 ? feet ). Man ,... what a crappy winter so far. Come on Spring !

Sorry to hear about all of the snow. I hope that it all melts for you before the middle of April. Good luck, and best wishes. :-)

We've only used our heater for about one week or ten days so far this winter (?), and we've only had one good rain.

I bought a nice sweater and a good lookin' hoodie earlier and haven't worn either yet. :old:

Brother DuD mom said not to make fun of other peoples misfortunes............... I'm telling :p

I feel for you Pete, usually up here in Canada we have more winter than you guys, not the case right now. The trick is to wear a hawaiian shirt under your snow jacket, get some aloha karma. All the best and be careful

All this snow will make us appreciate Spring and Summer all that much more. But boy, they seem like a long ways off right now.

I think that I speak for everybody in this region when I say Uncle!

Dear DUD1, I'm not makin' fun of all that snow. It's really hard to have nice new clothes and haveta run around in last summer's t-shirts. Why, we haveta wear sunglasses outside all day! And we've been bustin' our backs sweeping the dust off our sidewalk once or twice a week! It's been a brutal winter!

But Pukulele Pete, I do feel your pain. My Granddaughter and her family live near Boston. :old:

Snow has been real bad here in NJ too.

Yesterday I saw our neighbor (across the street) with a propane tank on his back like scuba gear, and he had a metal wand/torch that is about 3 feet long, and yep, you guessed it - FLAMETHROWER

He was using the crazy thing to melt the snow of course, super dangerous I know, but I was just mesmerized and could not look away.

I dont know if doing that is illegal, but nothing/nobody got burned up (this time). After about and hour he put it away.

As long as my house does not catch fire....when it's -10 F outside at night.

Well Pete, I was trying to be a little diplomatic, and not rub it in, as I know that when I happen to comment too much on FB about how nice the weather is down here, they all get mad up North there. So I tried to be sensitive about it. But it seems to me that Dave does not feel the same way. I don't know how I feel about that, him rubbing it in and all and all that insensitivity. I feel like I need to take my uke down to the beach, find a palm tree to sit under, preferably one with no coconuts to fall on my head, and think about if I want to continue to associate with him? :)

I hope a coconut does hit your Head ( just a small one ). If I knew how to put a smiley here I would . :)

What's this "snow" you guys speak of. We hear the tourists use that term here in San Diego. Ric

I wish you could send some our direction - its been in the 60s here in Utah, with relatively little snow. This does not bode well for having enough water in the spring and summer...

Glad you got a chuckle from it! I have to admit, I'm kind of jealous of the neighbor. I'd ask to borrow the flamethrower rig, but I'd rather not risk an impromptu performance of the 'burning bush' nor set my home ablaze, you know, like by accident.

However, it did look really cool though to see a jet of fire about a foot wide and 3 feet long just obliterate the snow and ice as he waved it back and forth as he went across his driveway, but he still had to shovel the cars out once the rest of the driveway was clear.

I could not help to think that he really needed to be wearing a welder's mask/helmet to complete the outfit though. :)

My next door neighbor, who is a young guy, young being in his forties, and I have a deal. I move his snow until new years, and he moves mine after, when I come down here for the winter. I think that when it is his turn, he hits the sidewalk pretty regularly and the drive when he gets around to it. Which is fine. I've told him many times just to forget the drive, but he does it. He sends me pictures. He also keeps an eye on the place. This winter, I had to clean his sidewalk and drive once before I left, and from what I've been hearing, maybe I will need to mow his lawn for a while when I get back, just to even the score.

Please send all your snow my way! I'm sick and tired of all these endless snowless English winters. What's the point of the cold if there's no snow coming with it? Man, I miss it. I'm not happy during winter unless I get that crunch-crunch-crunch sound under my boots on my way to work. Sigh.

Amen! We've had one bit of snow down here this winter, and that amounted to about a millimeter of coverage of the course of a morning, melted by lunchtime.
