Yeah, the weather in these parts suck.  Watched one of the chickens catch and eat a snake today.  She sucked that thing down like a piece of spaghetti.

Chickens are involved in my food chain.  So are snakes but indirectly.

LOL! Yeah, I eat beetles, mice, cracked corn and chicken poop....after they've been appropriately processed through a chicken and popped out their butt!  (eww!)

Speaking of that, I wonder who the first guy/gal was who decided to eat an egg?

"Hey, Tork, I dare you to eat the next thing that comes out of that bird's butt!"   :crazy:

I was out cleaning up some snow drifts and making a new plowed lane to the barn this afternoon.  Went down in the lower fields where there is no drifting and no cattle have been since this storm started.  The snow is 20" deep on the flats.  That is, in my somewhat faulty memory, the 2nd most snow we have had in the last twenty years.  We needed the moisture and this should get us off to a good start with this Springs alfalfa and grass. 

I was from 5F to 8F this afternoon and is going below zero tonight.  The forecast for the next 7 days is no new snow, no temperatures over 27F and several days of less than 10F for a high.

Snowshoe conditions are good and my two new knee joints are about to the point where it might work to do a little bit of it.

I miss winter. Really, I do.
We've maybe had three snow falls so far and they've each only been about 15cm (6") each.
Now here we are in late Feb and the daytime temps the past few days have been above freezing with night temps just below freezing.
This continues until late next week.
NS and NB maple syrup producers are already tapping trees (the earliest most of them have ever done so).
Conditions are perfect for syrup production. Less so for snow showing, skiing, winter camping.

Well it is snowing hard at present and they were calling for 1 to 3 inches.  We are at 4 inches now and they upped the ante to 8".  Temperatures in the mid-twenties at the moment.  There was a stiff east wind yesterday and that usually portends a worse storm than the NW winds bring. 

I hope this is winter's swan song and we are headed for some warm weather.  Some ride your motorcycle around weather would be really nice.   :'(

With 6" of snow still on the ground here the middle of March, I doubt our Spring Planting will go as scheduled.

Yesterday is was supposed to snow all day. Not even a drop of rain fell. Today was supposed to be 80% cloud cover. It's been wall-to-wall blue sky all day.
Those NWS guys are like a bunch o' deer caught in the headlights.
The news media is no better. They showed the radar for the storm heading to New England from the southwest and called it a Nor-Easter. They don't even know how to read a compass, let alone report accurately.

OP, It's called a noreater because the cold and moisture coming from the southwest is colliding with an Atlantic storm that's coming in from the east. What that does is cause a stall in the systems. The first two stayed well east of me and Boston got hit hard 3 times in a row now. The worst part is the lake effect caused by the rotation at the back of the storm(west side). Lake Ontario produces a ton of moisture that gets dumped right on us.

My driveway is 500' long. I have a very heavy compacted 6 foot high snow bank down the length of it. I have two piles that are over 10' high. The last two times I plowed it was almost too heavy for the John Deere to push. I was going to remove the snow blade and use the bucket to scoop and dump. Luckily I didn't have to but I did have to push a single blade width from left to right across the driveway until I got to the road. I can usually just run down the length with it angled to the east. This was the third Northeaster and one more coming Tuesday/Wednesday. Not sure what I would have done if I was still relying on the old Chevy....

I can drive in the worst of it with no worries. 80,000lbs and big rubber. My problem is the other drivers. Too may accidents. While I'm sitting in stopped traffic my drive time is counting down. I only have 11 hours available of drive time and my run is usually 10 hours on perfect road conditions. My work will come and get me if I'm within an hour of the warehouse. Not many companies are willing to do that. Especially in this bad weather.

If you're curious it's http://www.gcfoods.com. That truck on the top of the home page is me and the truck I drive. I had to do an hour long photo shoot for a promotional ad. The truck driver video is another driver that pulls double 48' every night. God bless him! I don't want to do that in this weather. Pays good but Nope!!

It seems to have compacted a lot after being 35 degrees for half a day. It's down to 20 again with some high winds. Video loading....

Nice ride, Xj!! Is that your rig, or the company's?

So looking at the radar and the prevailing winds, if a "nor'easter" comes from the south west, what is a "sou'wester"?

Oh, wait....never mind. Sou'wester is Brit term...kinda like "bushcraft". LOL

XJ you have more snow than we do.  Our piles are half the size of yours and my driveway (1320') had just a couple of feet on each side of the road.  The last few days, before this storm, it warmed the place up and a lot of it melted down.  Now its got about 8" to 10" ( about fifteen minutes ago) of fresh snow covering up the driveway that was just mud.  It is kind of soft snow compared to the really wet stuff we usually get.  Just now I drove down to the county road and packed it down a bit.  Should be no problem plowing it when the snow quits. 
 
We put a metal roof on the house about three years ago.  I shovel the deck and the snow slides off the roof.  I shovel that and another two feet slides off.  Goes on and on.  I gotta get some of those things you screw to the roof so all the weight can stay up there and cave the roof in.  If it ever warms up again I will get er'
 done.   :-X

FYI..get the full length (10'-14') snow brakes for your roof. Don't mess with those little screw on toys that are supposed to break up the snow.  Look around at what commercial buildings have.  I put one over my porch/deck at the front door and didn't have even ONE avalanche this year, even after 20" of snow at one time.

Those are the type I looked at.  I can get two of them long enough to go from the door to the stairs down the deck on one side and a short one for the door out of the bedroom on the other.  The front door has a cover that extends out 6' or so and is nearly flat.

It is 28F here and still snowing.  Supposed to snow till about 8:00 PM and then again tomorrow with another 3".

For my tool shed roof, which always seems to avalanche onto one of the trails between buildings, I got one 10' piece and cut it into 1/3rds.  Those I staggered from high to low down the slope so all the snow wouldn't stop in a straight line and increase the load on the roof.

This storm dumped 11.5" on us.  It is all plowed and melting fast at the moment.  9F this morning and about 37F for the high.  Rain or snow tomorrow but not much they are saying.

Yesterday it was in the high fifties (F) and we had a little wind out of the NW.  Needed 4 wheel drive to get up the driveway where it is the steepest after the bridge.

This morning it is fourteen above and snowing.  This is getting old. 

If it was tomorrow I would think it was an April fool's joke.  The only good news is that the road and corrals are frozen solid again and you can check the stock water tanks without going through a foot of mud.

Our high today will be 15*F. Tonight we're forecasted to drop to -1*F. right now we're at 3*F with the wind out of the NW at 22 MPH. I'm sure glad I don't have calves on the ground like some of my neighbors. Tough conditions for calving season for sure.

1" of snow last night. Dodged the 4-6" bullet. Temp 25F.  The most confused residents are the robins. They are hopping around in 1" of snow going, "WTF?".

We have about 4" of snow on the ground at our elevation of about 2700ft. But 9 miles to the East, and 3,000ft higher we have 130" of snow...on the 6th of April?? Two years ago there was 39" on this date.

Snowed again yesterday.  3" about and light and fluffy.  If I had gotten out the leaf blower it would have made short work of it.  16F  in the AM.  Today was cold at 14F and we got another bit of snow, maybe 3" and it drifted in the driveway to a foot or better.  Tomorrow is supposed to warmer and then Sunday another storm rolls in.  The ranchers here who start calving in April to avoid the cold, wet, and muddy conditions are sorely disappointed with the weather pattern. 

This has been a very strange year, to say the least.

Woke up to 4*F this morning. Wind chill at -10*. Still have 8" of snow in the yard and all the highway ditches are full. Had to snowblow a path to the car trailer to get it out for use yesterday. Isn't this winter ever going to end?

Single digit cold here this morning too.  Got up to about 30F pretty quickly and then climbed into the high 30's.  We are supposedly going to warm up for a couple of days too.  Two more storms are coming, one Tuesday and the other Friday.

Today's forecast is/was for 0.31" of rain w/high of 44 deg. They missed it by 10+ degrees, and we have 2" of new snow with it still coming down. I think all of the meteorologist have either gone on a week-long binge, booked appointments with their therapists, or found a different line of work.... Grrrrrrr.....

Our forecast .31" of rain is up to 3" of snow so far. Rats! I feel like it should be Christmas time. I'm looking out at my snow covered bird feeder and watching the Snow Birds (Junco) hopping around like it was December.

They were there when you first posted them.  It was like two posts of the same thing but worded a bit differently on each one.

If you're talking about our precip here, rain never happened. We got maybe 2.5" of snow here in our valley. That equals about 0.2" if it was rain. 9 miles to the east of us, and 3,000 feet higher, the snow on the ground is 132".

Warm today (30F early about 50 right now.)  Big storm coming Friday but we may miss the wet part of it.  Lots of wind called for with some rain turning to snow.  :(

By the way, it is MUDDY!!!!!
