Snow already?!?   :o

Heh, it's alright--I lived in Michigan for 3 years, so I'm used to snow coming earlier than in NJ.

It was a treat in NJ if we got snow by Thanksgiving.  Some years, though, it didn't come until after Christmas.

This year feels like "a week before Thanksgiving" at the latest.

Just got back in from plowing the driveway... nursing some kind of cold too.

Our apartment door opens outward and we have no easement or canopy or anything overhead, so I spent most of yesterday evening fretting about 2" of snow in front of the door... Of course, it's probably good that I did so as I didn't have to manage 6" of snow butt up against the door, but we got far less snow than I was expecting.

It doesn't help that my back is about 2 wrong bends/twists from being thrown out.

It was a total free-for-all on the Everett Turnpike last night.  Too much snow on the ground to see the lane dividers, so everyone just made their own.  I loved it when an 18-wheeler suddenly decided to create another "lane" in between me and the car in the "lane" next to me.  :icon_pale:

I've got a good two feet of drifted snow on my balcony, and the snowplough guy is apparently smoking a fatty rather than clearing my road.  Looks like a good day to stay inside, bake cookies and...   :read2:

Ch'kah!  Yeah... I'm glad I wasn't out at night at all!  It started snowing up here around 5:30ish... and it stuck REAL fast.

Today, however, I'm going to venture up to Plymouth.  I need to get out of the apartment, I think.

I did 2" of snow three times also thinking if I waited too long it would get too wet for the blower.  We used the blower on an additional 3-4inches just before dark.  The stuff out there looks white, but, I know it rained all night, so.....I'm very afraid to go out.

Just after I wrote, he got out of the yard. The temporary radio fence is partially above ground, and must have broken. He got about 20 houses down before we coaxed him close enough to grab him back.

Hash browns don't really exist, either. At least not my definition. Most breakfast potatoes here are chunks of deep fried potatoes, overly fried at that. Occasionally they are grilled and that is better. Some places offer "hash browns" that are just the deep fried patty things like McD's has. To get shredded potatoes, gently grilled, I have to go to Denny's. Not many of those around either.

Don't even think about looking for grits.

No biggie. The latest I saw it snow in western Arkiesaw where I grew up (and which is not generally noted for impressive snowfall), was April 15. I believe that was in 1978, but don't quote me.

Late-season snowstorm approaching

You didn't take your snow tires off, did you? Six inches or more of snow may fall across New Hampshire tonight. Rain may limit the accumulation.

Yeah our power was out here too for about 4 hours.  I don't know about you but to me it's so peaceful when the power goes out.  I love it except for not being able to get a shower, but I'm lucky because I have a hair appt. today so my hair will get washed. 
My kids always make fun of me because we have a regular phone and just 1 cordless so every time the power goes out they think I'm great because they get to use the phone. ::)
I got the kids to go out and put a whole bunch of snow in our tub so we could flush the toilet if we had to. :)

No  ;D But that's not a bad idea.

Just a bird feeder... I think she hasn't filled this one cause she thinks it's pretty. The other feeders have been very busy lately. The bird are real happy to get fed this time of year.

We have greatly increased the bird population since we have been on the mountain. Our Veterinarian is envious of the wide range of species we see here. Because we have clearings and woods with lots of shelter, food and water.

Here in another month it gets pretty outrageous at dawn with all the different birds singing away. No need for an alarm clock.  :)

On baseball's Opening Day throughout the country, grounds crews carefully manicure green grass, precisely lay down foul lines, and use rakes and drag mats to beautify the dirt into a perfect consistency.

In New Hampshire, they use snow shovels, and a Zamboni on the infield (http://www.unionleader.com/article.aspx?headline=NH+powerless+against+heavy+snow&articleId=55870fa2-1577-4478-9ea5-2a744ee70823).

As I walk the forest in the spring morning hours, it has occurred to me that folks who think/imagine that this is a "quiet" walk have never done this at these hours.

Whew, it was nasty on 93!  Big trucks kept passing us and it scared me.  Then I nagged Rick as usual and was telling him how to drive so he was nervous and it made him drive worse.  I could just swear he drives in the other persons lane all the time but I guess my eyes are fubared because we don't get hit.  I always tell him, "Rick there's a truck coming, ( I think it's an OCD thing since the accident).  I'm always like this  :confused2: when he drives and I say, "mommy, help me".  Like he doesn't see these huge trucks, poor Rick he really has to love me I guess.

Oh my gosh that reminds me of such a funny story!  I always dodge frogs in the road and scream if they jump.  So my friend, kids, and her kids, were in the van we were driving on a back road at night and zig-zagging all over to not hit the hundreds of  frogs on the road and I'm screaming, she's pissing herself laughing, the kids were saying, "WEE!" like they were on a roller coaster it was so funny!

Glad you're home safely, Rainey...and please don't dodge the frogs!

It's a fun thing we do here in NH...  LOL

That's it, I'm going to protest this action! :D  I must dodge the frogs or else I have to say hundreds of prayers for the ones I kill.  I'm loaded with "issues".  I could make a therapist rich! :)

Snowing, AGAIN. Some guy from the National Weather Service said (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/04/14/AR2007041400576.html), as this storm system made its way across the country, that it looks like a winter storm. Global warming, my ASS.

Promissed myself that (as I reclaim my health) I'd get back to the trails on a more regular basis, and start heading for the "deeper" trails (which I've been missing for too long), BEFORE the snow starts this season.

Well on Tuesday morning, with reports of rain on the way, I headed for Trail D - which I hadn't seen in well over a year.  And wouldn't you know - - - as "fate" would have it, no rain - - - the snow began.   ;D

I'm confident I'll be back in shape BEFORE the snow gets deep enough to put on the snowshoes again.   :_eatsnow__by_Conuyaku:

It's finally snowing here in Minnesota today! It looks like only 4 or 5 inches, but enough to get excited about if you own a sled or a snowplow. I really love driving in the snow...a LOT. More than any reasonable person should.

Every time I tell someone I'm moving to NH, they always get wide-eyed and say something like "how are you going to handle those cold NH winters?" or something like that. They don't seem to understand that I like the winter. I live. In Min. Esota. How bad can NH possibly be in comparison? I did hear from one friend that the snowfall in NH is pretty high, so maybe that's what these people are always talking about? It snows a good amount here, but I can't imagine NH being as cold as Minnesota in the depths of an angry January.

It's finally snowing here in Minnesota today! It looks like only 4 or 5 inches, but enough to get excited about if you own a sled or a snowplow. I really love driving in the snow...a LOT. More than any reasonable person should.

Every time I tell someone I'm moving to NH, they always get wide-eyed and say something like "how are you going to handle those cold NH winters?" or something like that. They don't seem to understand that I like the winter. I live. In Min. Esota. How bad can NH possibly be in comparison? I did hear from one friend that the snowfall in NH is pretty high, so maybe that's what these people are always talking about? It snows a good amount here, but I can't imagine NH being as cold as Minnesota in the depths of an angry January.

NH weather is much milder than MN, I can attest to this fact! There were winters in MN in my memory where it didn't get above zero for weeks on end. Last winter here I can't remember a day where it got below 20 above. The summers are milder, too. Minnesota summers are often unbearable, but here it's pretty tolerable.

I figured as much, but I understand that certain points of upstate New York to have unbearable winters due to lake effect or some other such meteorological stuff that I can't ever seem to understand  ::)

I'm seeing more problems with condensation.
Warmer air holds more moisture than colder air.  When the warmer air is cooled, the water comes out of the air.
The air moving across the Great Lakes picks up water, if it is colder on shore when the moist air arrives the water will condense out of the air.  If it is colder than freezing, it will become snow.

It's the same problem the Chemtrails Guys have.   :_snowball__by_darkmoon3636:

That is pretty funny.  Do you know why they think that?  The polar weather is much more likely to reach MN and it is likely to stay there longer.  Maybe they thought you were moving to Mt. Washington, as it is known to have the worst weather in the world.

I'm watching Rick back up over and over again to flatten out the driveway area, he had his dog out with him and his truck lost traction so he almost ran the poor girl over.  I banged on the window and pleaded with him to let the dog back in the house where she's safe. ::)

Now, I'm trying to ignore what he's doing even though my computer is right in line with me being able to see him out of the corner of my eye without trying. ::)

I think the huge Stonehenge is so strange like maybe it is a launchpad for UFOs or something.  I've read that people can really feel a weird energy pull when they have visited that one.

Weird...I thought I heard one of the ladies say the exact same thing about PatK.    :D

Yes well my  great mass does cause a gravitational pull.

It's slowed down up this way, (Campton).  I got up early this morning and made sure we all got showers and filled tons of pitchers with water for us and the animals, filled the tub to be able to flush the toilets.  We still have electricity, I'm surprised with the wind bursts, I have candles, lighters and hand cranked radio all set.
Rick is out shoveling away and doing his annoying driving the cars back and forth a million times. ::)

I drove a big heavy cab in the early 70's. I was coming up Rt. 2 in East Hartford entering the exit for downtown Hartford, a long left hand curved overpass. I didn't give any thought to the rain, the cold or the overpass.  A guy was jumping up and down waving his arms. I hit the brakes trying to steer out of the skid, failed and spun around and hit the side of another car that was across the road. I crinkled in the side of their car quite a bit. I got out and checked on the older couple. They were ok. There were three other cars that had hit each other beyond them.
A state cop pulls up.  He steps out of the cruiser and falls flat on his ass. He got up and flipped open his book asking what happened. Then, what sounded like a bad crash took place on whatever road was immediately below us.  We all got some kind of pass due to conditions.  I guess he got our names, I don't remember.  My victims and I limpted to the cab company and the night manager talked them into a settlement.

GILFORD, N.H. (AP) - Much of this week's winter carnival in Gilford has been canceled, due to too much winter.

Parks and Recreation Director Herb Greene notes that the cancellation of 2 events was due to poor road conditions and snow-filled parking lots.

Of the three events originally scheduled for Wednesday, the Cardboard Box Sled Derby has been rescheduled to Friday morning.

From the UL:

As of yesterday, total snowfall in Concord -- the community where data have been kept the longest -- was 19.8 inches short of the 19th-century record of 122 inches.

New Hampshire could see 8 to 12 inches of snow before the storm tapers off by noon in southern New Hampshire and by 4 p.m. in central and eastern parts of the state, according to the National Weather Service.


Looks like we're on the way to breaking the all time record for snow. Ugh!

and winter from late Oct to April/May...and it never fricken thawed out.

I paid my dues.

Here in Colorado I am spoiled with the dry air, 300+ days of sunshine a year and shorter winters.

The biggest difference is in the humidity here in CO. Here when it is 35 degrees and the sun shining you do not even need a coat. It s nothing compared like Buffalo where that moist cold air chills your bones.

So umm..enjoy the freezing cold sloppy weather back in NH. hee hee..spring is coming tho'

Except Global Warming is blamed not just for hot weather but for increases in violent weather nowadays. Hurricanes, typhoons, tornadoes, &c.. See how they’ve always an answer and it always result in the DOOM? ::)

Polar Bears dying = Chances of being attacked by a Polar Bear dramatically decreased!

New York City underwater = Ending urban blight

You've got to accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative.

Huh?

What characterizes a lot of faiths is their unfalsifiable nature—any attempt at presenting opposing evidence can be explained away by omnipotence of the faith’s deity, or the idea that logic doesn’t apply, or similar. Scientific theories are supposed to be falsifiable—that is, a theory is constructed based upon available evidence, but if evidence comes to light that contradicts the theory… time for a new theory. When GW advocates are able to label virtually every aspect of the modern environmental condition as being evidence of global warming, GW theory becomes unfalsifiable—and moves from science to faith.

Since weather and climate are relative (climate being the long term average of weather), a regional weather anomaly if long enough would in essence be a climate changing event.

While the theory would suggest that an increase in solar irradiance, or an increased retention of thermal energy, would change regional weather patterns.

While the theory would suggest that an increase in solar irradiance, or an increased retention of thermal energy, would change regional weather patterns.

The actual theory as put forth by global warming climate change advocates is that the increased temperature translates to increased energy in the atmosphere, which translates to more violent weather throughout the world in general—including monster snowstorms among other things. This does sort of make sense, but I begin to be suspicious because the theory has such a catch-all nature. It’s as if they were casting about since the 1970s trying to come up with a theory that couldn’t easily be challenged, and they finally did it. The theory is simply too convenient.

Yes, this is a grossly unscientific counterargument, but since the issue is already so politicized by the other side, I tend to trust my own paranoid political intuition more than scientific rigor.

My main question is, Is Global Warming going far enough? I mean, even the most radical projections don't show the planet warming by more than a few degrees. I'm sick of this ice age. Let's try to get back to how it was when the dinosaurs were here. Increased heat doesn't mean that life can't thrive. On the contrary, we are still living off the oil from the massive amount of carbon-based life that thrived during that period. So let's try to go back to that time. That was nice. It might even solve our peak oil problem.  ;)

We finally got power back this afternoon after 9 days out. We did have a generator for basic functions, but no internet. The generator actually failed around 10 am and the repairman arrived just 5 minutes after the main power came on.

The snow is making it hard to remove all the fallen trees and branches from last week.

No snow here today  thank effn God. It was 12 degrees when I left for the studio this morning around 845
brrrrrrrrrrrr.
My poor truck looked like a giant salt pile... I did take the plow off it and managed to find a car wash down in MA that didn't have a 50 car line so 13 dollars later it was clean for 5 minutes till I started the 30 mile ride home.

My wife bought me the truck for a wedding present, and for the first few months when it sat in the yard with the plow on it waiting for snow, we joked that she just dropped 26 grand on a plow and it would probably never snow again.

Boy were we wrong!  16 months and a winter and a half later, the truck with 9000 miles on it has seen more than it's fair share of snow, and if I don't have to use it again this winter it is fine with me! I bet right now the truck is conspiring to evict the Porsche from the garage so it can go hibernate for the summer.

It looks to be about 8 inches in Grafton, and the snowblower was resting warmly in the basement, apparently on strike, as we tried to shovel enough snow out of the long driveway for Kat to be able to return from work.

I got about 9 inches of powder at the Freehold, and assume the snow plows have walled me in at the end of the driveway; I got too tired walking there to actually look.   :P  Now the snow is coated with a layer of ice.  I already told my boss I won't make it in to work tomorrow, since the only way I can clear the driveway is to spend some time not WORKING during daylight hours.  :homework:

We'll see how much of what the nice man at Lowe's told me about "augurs" and "priming" and "checking the oil" and "don't stick your fingers in there" I retained.  Will there be blood on the snow?  Will I ever be seen again?!  Will my emaciated, fingerless corpse be found in a snowdrift next spring?  Stay tuned for the next exciting episode of California Grrl in the Woods of New Hampshire!   :happy1:

Lindsay is stuck at the bottom of the hill. The Element won't climb it, it just keeps sliding.

I can't get out of the driveway because it's not plowed. This isn't bad planning, I swear! Someone came out to plow and the plow truck got stuck.

Well... Yes, we did.

Lindsay got stuck at the bottom of the hill, and one of our neighbors (someone we haven't met yet) let us park the car at their place. Lindsay and her hung out for a bit.

Then, Artie got an armada of tractors here to rescue the plow truck and plow the driveway.

So, we're all set now. It was exhausting and... interesting. Lots of folks do stuff the Grafton way up here in Grafton. :P

I'm familiar with winter. I grew up in Michigan, and while I'm young, I had plenty of winter driving experience.

It's bad when it's "just cold enough" to snow. Pressure causes snow to melt, and the cold of the snow causes the water to freeze as ice. Ice = slippery. :) When it's really cold, it just poofs around the road. :)

What I was NOT expecting was the snow to hit like this. I think this is the third snow of the year (and ironically, 2 of 3 happened when I stayed the night in Keene...) and BAM, my car is buried. I expected some time to get used to it, to get a feel for how things would fare. Guess I was wrong. :P

I'm not sure if that was intended to be towards me, but Lindsay did provide a bit of non-monetary compensation for the lady who invited her in. She also speaks pleasantly of her, so it's possible she may have made a new friend as well. :)

The guy who plowed the driveway has a history with both Jerry and myself and I will most certainly trade favors with him as he's done for me.

Neighbors watch each other's backs, and while there are certainly exceptions, it seems to be a pretty strong meme here. Today, I needed more help than I offered. It won't always be that way. :)

The guy who plowed the driveway has a history with both Jerry and myself and I will most certainly trade favors with him as he's done for me.

Neighbors watch each other's backs, and while there are certainly exceptions, it seems to be a pretty strong meme here. Today, I needed more help than I offered. It won't always be that way. :)

I apologize for lame attempt at humor...
I'm no good sober.
I thought it was petty funny!

Some times it's enough just to make it home in one piece.

Took a run at the big hill coming up the mountain and some city slicker was stuck 3/4 way up... we would have made it, but ended up having to try and back down... ended up in the ditch... miraculously between two people pushing and me doing some wild ass maneuvers spun the car around... a controlled slide back down... waited 2 hours for the sand truck to come by... one more balls to the wall run at it and somehow made it up. Rain on snow on top of ice... that was fun. lol

I had something like that today!

Lindsay has just got off of work, and she had an.. um... appointment?... with a new friend. We spent a few minutes on the phone debating how we would get home with the snow.

So I went out to get her and as we plugged along Hardy Hill, the car started spinning, and then gently sliding down the hill.

It took me two attempts to get up the hill in various gears (Thanks Yahoo! Answers!) but the second attempt I menaged to get JUST far enough that I stopped where a pickup was also stranded with their flashers on.

I hopped out, with someone else pulling up behind me and causing an embarassing roadblock. The other stranded guy and myself decided we'd trade pushes to get up the hill. So since I was blocking the "proper" side, we pushed the Malibu up the hill. It was tough, and still snowing like crazy, but we got enough to get the car over the crest and into the driveway. The third guy hopped in and pushed too; I suspect we'd have gotten stuck again without him.

So then we tried pushing the truck out, and even with three of us, it failed. Rear wheel drive. :(

Anyway... New Hampshire snows suck ass, but the have a really strange way of introducing neighbors to each other! There's always a silver lining, I suspect!

The little storm that Kevin is talking about came in fast and was very slippery. Two guys left the compound left here after it began. They were sliding going down our road. When they got down to Rt. 4 they saw a guy slide off the road into a snowbank, helped him out and returned home.

  A 5 gallon pail of sand to spread for traction and a shovel are handy to keep in the vehicle for getting unstuck.  The Grafton landfill has a pile of "free" sand.  Just think only about a week to go before winter is "officially" here.   No snow adventures count until it's winter...State law.   ;D

Title: Re: It's SNOWING!!!!!!!!
Post by: AntonLee on December 14, 2009, 09:29 AM NHFT
my neighbors laugh at me for going out and keeping up with it.  They're all old and frail and I was figuring they'd come out and ask me to shovel their snow too.  They just watched and waved (and chuckled). . . just as I get done, they open the shed door and the mother of all snowblowers comes out and morphs like a transformer.  They were done their whole driveway, stairs, etc in about 10 minutes.

these people are professionals.

I don't really mind it all that much, I love the view from inside but not on the road.  I saw a guy spin out and wanted to help him but if I stopped I would have been in an even worse position.  Sometimes you can stop and help push, sometimes it's every man for themselves.

Our town (Barnstead) also has a pile of free sand by the "town shed". I filled 2  5 gallon buckets there this morning.

We keep two tube sands in the bed of the truck at all times. Once last year at Ron's place in Deerfield, I got stuck and even my 4 wd didn't get me going again. We broke open one of the tubes under the tires and it worked like a charm.

At least it seemed that way on the front steps.

I deemed it to deep to mess with and have engaged

I will make for the south lands for the next few weeks.

1) Advertise snow plowing services.
2) Don't return my call.
3) Wait until a storm comes along that drops several inches.
4) Wait until I am using the snowblower to clear my own driveway.
5) Walk up my private drive, *behind* me, while the snowblower is running and I'm wearing ear protection, and suddenly appear at my elbow.

I called a business five days ago and left voicemail.  Three days later, Snow Plow Man calls me back. The first thing he says is "My WIFE gave me your message."  He then says he won't tell me how much he will charge to plow my driveway until he has taken a look at it first.  He was supposed to call back later that day, but never did, that day or the next.  I figured he didn't like the looks of my driveway.   :dontknow:  Turns out, he forgot.  Now that he has seen it, his rates are quite delightfully acceptable. 

Ordinarily I would try harder to word the above to ward off the inevitable double un-thunders, but I'm just too tired to bother.  It's been a rough day.   :coffee:  I'm sleeping in tomorrow and the snowblower can... how does Becky Thatcher put it... "eat shit and die".   ;D

Hope all is well in NH.

with the sun on my back breeze in my hair, cold Beer
in my hand, looking over at the Koi swimming in the

We know some of our friends in the southern part of New Hampshire are coping with the what last night's weather left behind, so we cut our normal 10 Second Break to 5 Seconds.

One of our fearless crew members went to the top of the Kancamagus Highway this afternoon, where 39 inches of snow fell overnight!

We just wanted to share.

I had not checked the forcast, but I knew that the ground had thawed again so, I moved dirt on the North North East/East North East corner of the church today. Now I see possible snow in the forcast for the next 6 days. I think I could be (almost) done (just in time?) working on the outside of that, "the coldest and wettest," corner of the building until ... well we'll see.

Also, my ankle may never be quite the same again but that did not stop me from buying two (forward and goalie) used hockey sticks ... And, I don't know how far I'll make it, but look forward to snow shoeing again. I haven't been on them since last February ...

And the wind.
This building makes the strangest noises when it is windy.
Its kind of interesting and makes me think about how very differently people respond to such noises.

I've never experienced anything like this before. But, I've never actually been sitting quietly, in such a big old (1798) church building, sitting so quietly, alone, thoughout a storm, quietly listening to how the building is responding to the first of winter storms. Very strange and interesting indeed.

Then I here a racing (kind of whining) engine and wonder what the heck is that all about. I can't tell from which direction it came. And then again, and its gone.
When I look out back at the rail trail I realize it was the sound of snowmobilers at play.

Winter definitely arrived today.

One of my fondest memories from my mid-teens was sawing firewood with my dad. We had about six inches of snow on the ground, clear blue skies, no wind, and the thermometer stood at exactly 0F. It helped that we were working on the south side of our shop (with bare aluminum siding), but we were in t-shirts and jeans, no coats at all.

HEY! Its snowing again.   :o

Rather than getting all worked up and depressed about “Too Long Winta,” how about a bunch (or a few) of us get together and make a great big big snow man, or lots of little snow people, or both?

Don't say that its not worth it because they won't last long. That's part of the point: It won't last long.
Let's just turn it into fun while it does last.

We could do it here at Peaceful Assembly Church later today or early tomorrow – or maybe both.

We can even put them near the north side of the building, in the shadow of the church where the sun won't get them.

WHY NOT? When we are given lemons we make lemonade.

SMILE. Its almost over.

It was snowing a tiny tiny bit (off and on, most of the day) the other day again. I thought, "Isn't that cute."

Today it has been snowing enough that it is now sticking to the ground - pavement included.  :o

Growing up in Arkiesaw, even there I had snow on Easter morning. (IIRC, it was April 15 that year).

I think that was the same year we had a snow day every Thursday, because it showed every Wednesday. I know for sure it was the same year we had ice and snow on Rich Mountain until Memorial Day.

Or course, it sucks that our local Easter forecast is for heat and humidity and no precipitation.

Get Rhythm


Little shoeshine boy never gets low down
But he's got the dirtiest job in town
Bending low at the peoples' feet
On the windy corner of the dirty street
Well I asked him while he shined my shoes
How'd he keep from getting the blues
He grinned as he raised his little head
Popped a shoeshine rag and then he said
 
Get rhythm when you get the blues
Hey get rhythm when you get the blues
It only costs a dime just a nickel a shoe
Does a million dollars worth of good for you
Get rhythm when you get the blues

Bad combination.

Alcohol makes you feel warmer, but it's a vasoconstrictor, meaning it shuts down limb-saving blood flow to the extremities.

It's a good trade-off if you don't mind trading all your digits for that warm central glowing feeling.

I bought a trap house about a year ago, and it has been sitting empty since then. The copper pipes were stolen, but I had them replaced with PEX last week. I haven't hooked up to town water yet, because I didn't plan to heat the house this winter. It should only take a day to get water turned on if needed. It is in a no zoning town, so no certificate of occupancy is needed. Anyways, if you decide you don't want to live on public land in a tent, I have a house that is sitting empty. It's full of lead paint and asbestos...but it's not a tent.

Mary had a guy with a four wheeler plow our drive before I got here. It had built up to about 12", which was no problem for our truck, but was a barrier for visitors. My Christmas present was a new-to-me 1961 Bolens garden tractor with a bunch of attachments, including a snow blower. But, I have to go through everything and make sure it all works.

It hit -22 last night. Not quite as cold as forecast (-27). There was an inversion, and the peak of Mt. Washington was the warmest place in the whole state last night.

I snow shoed yesterday for the first time in a long time.   Just a short walk to replenish the bird feeders with suet.  Fell once and floundered around in the snow, trying to look like I meant to do that, got covered in snow... wished it was spring. 

The Chickadees found my antics funny, I think they were laughing at me...but the little ungrateful buggers leapt on the suet within seconds of me putting it out there.  Who said there's no such thing as free lunch?

Most of the time it's quite nice...except for waking up in a house where the temperature inside is 43.1F degrees!  But if your wood is dry, the house is warm in no time.  And I have charred the butt in many a robe by standing too close to the wood stove.  William will say "Mom, your clothes are smoking, move away from the stove!"

I had a wood stove when I lived in Grafton. I was always afraid the toddlers would get burned, but it never happend. It was nice to have heat when the electricity went out for two weeks in the middle of winter.

I have been on oil heat for the last 6 years. Well, oil and electric because each 1000w grow light kicks out 4000 BTUs of heat. There were a couple of years when oil was so expensive that I didn't even turn on the heat. My bedroom was around 45F all winter.

Now that oil is cheaper, I keep the thermostat set at 58F. It's 56F in my bedroom right now.

It's -6 outside. I am about to use it to my advantage, and do some ethanol cannabinoid extraction.

Winter tires are the same as snow tires. They have different tread patterns and a "softer" blend of rubber to grip better in cold temperatures, but that means they wear out quicker.

If your budget allows and you travel to work daily, you're smart if you have two sets.

I'm mildly amused that you would imagine that I know what snow tires are when I don't know what winter tires are. Here. This might help you better grasp my level of understanding when it comes to precipitation of any kind.

Al Hunt just came up with a couple of good remarks on Charlie Rose:

Regarding Trump's America First bombasts, he said, wait until the next time the little guy in Korea becomes belligerent and Trump calls China for assistance and they say, "Call Taiwan."

The other was, he said Trump is indeed the great uniter.  Tomorrow (Saturday) there will be a bus going from Philadelphia to Washington for a protest that is jointly rented by a Jewish group and a Muslin group that have previously never had anything to do with one another.

I have no idea how much we got, because it was drifting so much.

The uncovered porch rails had about 4"... but there was also that much on the covered part of the porch. The travel trailer had maybe 6" on top, but the vehicles had more like 10, and the driveway ranged from 8-15".

Probably on average, we got about 8 or 10 total.

It was light and dry and easy to move.

Here in Erie, we wouldn't even notice 5 measly inches.

Our oldest and his wife planned to come for Christmas from Fort Drum (Watertown NY), which is on the east end of Lake Ontario.

When the weather hit just as they were heading out Friday morning, they drove for three hours and made it 60 miles before turning back. If they'd made it to VT, it would have been even worse, because VT has an after-the-fact theory of plowing roads.

So, we had a merry Christmas (and happy birthday for the special princess), and got to see and/or speak to all our family via video or phone.

We're sitting at -13F right now, and Thursday's high will be -3~ish, with a low that night of -20 or lower.

No snow at those temps.  ;D
