EB, "real" truck drivers don't do pedicures. They also don't wear sandals. It's in the fine print somewhere in the Bubba Trucker Code of Conduct.

Well I quess it rained there all day today; my sister said that tonight they're calling for some freezing rain. This time of year in Ohio the weather can be 60 one day and 30 the next. Today up here it was in mid 40's again today and sunny.

EB and pedicures LOL...sorry EB had to giggle there. Throw the sandals in the closet; getting too cold for them.

Pretty soon, EB, you guys will be snowed in due to weather. Do you get a lot of time off during the winter? We are thinking of taking a trip up to Branson. Uncle Don wants to see Andy Williams. Be worth it just to get out of the house.

Good Evening everyone! redbird...love the pic of the doggy with the boots. EB, do you get alot of snow in that area? Was chilly up here today, around 40 but got sunny. Shhhh, no snow yet.

redbird, good friends of ours were just down in Branson (the ones I mentioned who are moving to England) but are traveling some first. She said the tour buses down there were incredible, so many of them. They didn't get to see a show but were passing through. I take it, you'll drive there?

All right, ptsum and Beavercreek.....where are you guys?

As far as the snow goes. We live right on the edge of the "snow belt" and what ever they get, we get half of it. Last year I think the record was broken at 82" for the season, chilly. I was out of work for a few days, but I had plenty of snow removal to take care of right here at home.
I hope you and Uncle Don have a great time and enjoy the show. A little fresh air is always good for the soul as well as the body. Tell Uncle "D" that BJB123 said howdy and send her best regard to the ole smoothy

Geez, 82" is quite a bit. We live between the snow zone and the rain zone, so we are prime suspects for an ice storm. Which means freezing rain that freezes upon impact because the temps are hovering right at 30 F or so.

This is a pic I took of my truck here in Oklahoma.



That my friends is ice build-up, not snow. You cannot drive on this and you cannot clear your driveway. We were socked in for 3 days and our car port collapsed under the weight.

I will take snow over ice any day. Okay, but not 82". I hear people in NH complaining on CDF about their weather last winter. We are fortunate.

We've had some real doozes of ice storms up here in the buckeye. Especially when the air flow shifts strait south and it grabs all the moisture off the open lake before it has a chance to freeze over. Even with the salt mines being right under Lake Erie it doesn't help much up on top.

This is just a picture of our companies driveway from last years heaviest snow fall. It took me two days just to open the main drive thru area and another four days to open the rest between the buildings. All that with a ford 1510 tractor with a front-end loader on it, no cab all open seating. Oh, and it happened on Valentine's day

Geez, EB, hope the Ohio Tourism doesn't use your post in it's travel brochure.

"Lookee here, this heah drahvway took a man FOUR EFFIN days to clear. And he done it while eating chocolates from his honey. That's a man's man."

My main complaint is I drive 35 miles to work and there are only 3 stop signs. There are no towns between my home and work. If I slide off the road, I am pretty much stuck out in the middle of no where. So, if it gets bad, I stay home! No inmate is worth going into a ditch for, is my motto.

Well, folks, I gots to go watch Denver get beat. Will check in later.

Goood Evening everybody! Whew....redbird, those ice storms...ugh. You said about the 3 stop signs and driving 35 miles to work. Well hopefully you'll never go off into a ditch, but is there any traffic at all on those roads? I know, I know..stupid question but just wondering. . I know on our highway up here (50 miles one way commute if you work in Anchorage and we both use to), cars always ended up in ditches in the winter (and sometimes in summer...darned black ice when it's 70 degrees out LOL), but there is always traffic so somebody would always stop. We've had some nasty ice up here over the years where you couldn't even walk across your driveway, let alone drive.

So, did Denver win?

EB, really neat pictures of all that snow. My best friend lives outside of Ashtabula, now she's in a snowbelt big time. And I sure remember when I was in Cleveland, those lake-effect storms.

Our temps are getting a bit cooler, especially in the mornings.
