    Well, after enduring 32" in one storm two weeks ago, followed by an ice storm and then another 8" last week, the weather man predicted 6" - 8" last night. I awoke to 19" this morning. We've had over 60" in January alone. this morning, my door was blocked by snow. I had to push it open by inches then start digging with my hands until it would fully open. I couldn't see the vehicles since the drifts buried my truck. I shoved a path out to the vehicles and shoveled as much as I could. Luckily, a friend who owns a farm up the road came down with one of his big tractors and a bucket. the end of my driveway had almost 5 ft of packed ice and snow from the plow trucks. If my friend hadn't showed up, I'd be there until spring.

    Thought you Floridians might enjoy a few photos of what you're missing. I just got to the shop and snapped these. You can barely make out the truck in the first one

    Snow is a 4 letter word.

    Another pretty shot. Note depth of snow beyond the plow area

    Just what I need to see to remember the whole world isn't frozen

    Sorry RH....:(

    It helps me when I think Spring is never coming...You know you're a parrothead when Jimmy announces tour dates, instead of looking for the flowers blooming....and I'm going to Tampa in April...so I KNOW Spring is coming....

    And now that we know Jimmy is ok, the jokes have begun about his fall....and I've been right in the middle of them...:oops:
