Let's be fair: it was only 1/3 Barskeyed. It was also 1/3 Russelled and 1/3 Johned. :)

Ummm...

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.

This could be interesting.

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

Many people forget to compensate farmers when they help out folks.

 :blush:   Maybe that should have been in Kate's getting laid etiquette thread.

Kevin, just so you know... this is about as slippery as it can be.

Give me cold weather when it snows, like below 20 degrees... it is much easier to get traction.

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. :)

My ATV was having alot of trouble from the slippery wet snow.

I like when its 0 or below and the snow is so dry it squeaks when you walk-on it. Get about as good traction as sand.

You're not supposed to be pulling on the power cord.  That goes in the outlet.   :D
