Default Snow

We finally got snow here in Wi. So what to do? Guess it's a good day to plan spring/summer/fall trips. Get out the atlas grab a coke and let the planning begin.

Just some flurries in Minneapolis. Didn't even stick. Most unusual winter I've ever experienced in Minnesota. We haven't even had a 0F day yet.

We're supposed to get 4 to 6 inches of snow tonight. Yes, good time to plan trips.

Ground is pretty bare now. Seems like an unusual winter here in the Maritimes as well - at least near me. Farmers on Prince Edward Island picked cabbages from the fields last week (January). Prior to that, the latest they had harvested had been early December one year.

We had a couple of inches here in Denver yesterday, along with really cold temps - it was in the single digits last night, not fun in a van. We also had about the same last Saturday night into Sunday, also with cold temps but warmer than last night (and I was inside in a motel room, easier to take). I used to like snow a lot; not anymore.

Maryland weather has also been odd. 4 days ago we had temps hitting 60 todays high is 34 and will be 18 tonight. Having no heat in my house today/ tonight are going to be a bit hard. I did purchase a filter that allows me to use my electric clothes dryer to heat the house and the fur squad are in full snuggle mode so I'll hopefully be able to hang in there until next week when I'll likely be moving into my van full-time.

I have one of those walk behind snow-blowers that I use to clear my driveway.
Ad Flyers, a free newspaper and real estate guide are all bundle up in a blue bag and delivered by someone in a vehicle once per week. They toss the bag into the driveway or lawn etc.

You see where this is going........................

The bag was buried by the snowfall we had on Thursday........

I found it.......... with the snow-blower

What a mess - shredded newspaper stuff just exploded out of the snow-blower chute!

We've just had our first "shovelable" snow overnight - perhaps 6 cm and -10 celcius. Most unusual for Edmonton. But the Class B didn't notice at all. She is in tucked away in the warm garage, plugged into shore power because grandma and granddaughter had an overnighter there at New Year's. A great hide-away for them.

You'll have to shovel really fast to get the same effect as markopolo by running over your newspaper.
