Winter has been tough, can't wait for Spring
« on: February 18, 2014, 02:12:04 AM »
Another snow day,   snowblowed my drive twice already,   and it's really coming down.    Oh boy,   another day of fighting idiots who don't drive right on the slippery roads.    I don't know about the rest of you,   but I can't remember a winter like this since 70's.   Every morning for weeks,   below zero or near it every morning.      Going to customers houses where they don't clear driveway or walks,   and trudging through in my thermal hunting boots.     
 
Only good thing is I have been swamped with weater related problems (ie.  cracked water valves on dishwashers and washers.).     Been loaded up with extra valves lately.   
 
Are the rest of you as sick of the snow and sub zero weather as I am?

Here in western Colorado we have had snow and ice on the ground since November.Last week temperatures climbed above 40 with the temp today at 60. Sure feels good. Truck gets too hot inside. Had to roll the window down a little.

Having a severe drought problem here in California.  Very little water.  Very little snow.  There were some days that the weather warmed up enough to go to the beach for a little summertime dip.  Ice cream shoppes are doing brisk business here.

We've had one of the worst winters in memory and I've been around along time .Massive snow and wind ,just last weekend it got down to -25 C ...very cold .Now for the next two days were told to expect lots of rain with high winds and thunderstorms .I expect lots of flooding .Can't wait for the day I can sit it my lawnchair next to the BBQ enjoying a steak and a brew.
