With a good snow thrower you can throw snow from as far as 100 foot away, pile it up high too.

That's snow that fell of my neighbors roof last year. The other side looks about the same. I took the pic because I never saw anything like it. I found that you could open the local paper and find ads for people looking to shovel your roof off. Last year and the previous there was more snow than most years I guess. I was told that the area deer heard suffered a near 50% loss due to the deep snow. Here's a pic of my buddy looking for a surveying pin in the spring.

Just one more snow pic. Here's a pic of the site we chose to build. We came up in the spring to burn the brush. Needless to say it wasn't ready. Try climbing up that hill in 30 inches of snow. I thought we were going to perish. I was hoping somebody would hear us yelling and send in a helicopter. Later I found out that most people have snowshoes. Never too late to learn!

I'm hoping it won't look like this (an old picture that a friend sent me when we were griping about snow one late February). I believe it to be following the blizzard of 1969, but she found it on another site and I can't vouch for its year.

Meanwhile, at this stage of the game, I think it's great to have a nice white coating to cover up the death of fall.

In 1962 we had a blizzard and they had to tunnel through the snow banks to open up the stores. The first tunnel was into the state liquor store on Main Street in Lincoln.

Last year in February when Clownshoes was looking for land we went in on snowshoes. I don't just give somebody a map and wish them luck.

First time I ever wore those things, still have to grab a set for me and the better half. I guess that'll be on my Christmas list for Sanity Clause.

Sounds like a CCR song. Well, that'll be stuck in my head all day now.
