19 December 2009 Snow Storm

At 10pm, the ground was bare.

At 8am, this:

Measured 13-1/4" center of the deck, which was pretty well protected. Drifts probably had areas over 20" in my yard.

Parts of Putnam & Danielson hit over 20".

Seriously, how can you not harbor a secret love of a TV show that can pull that off?

(When this was filmed, they hadn't been picked up for the back nine of Season 1 yet, so this *could've* been the show finale!)

Interesting phrase

Environmental fanatics and religious fanatics have something in common. They both want to take us back a thousand years into the past

Nice day...

Cold, raw day today -- was 13 overnight, got up to about freezing when I had the truck 1/2 loaded and it started to rain, but I kept on splitting up and then grabbed some nice 4-5" rounds that will be the "all dayers" I use when I go to work.

Come in the house soaking wet between sweat and the rain, and I start to take my hat and gloves and boots off by the wood stove.

And suddenly I feel like I'm 8 years old again taking off a soaking wet snow suit after a day playing outside.

Think the only thing that changed is my toys are a little bit more dangerous now, and I need an Advil!
