I see a woodshed in feed's future DIY thread. I got a roof over my wood pile last summer finally after 22 years, sure is nice to ditch the tarps finally.

Hit 67 here yesterday, unreal. The thick ice that was on side streets is all gone. Good for teenagers who slide on it around corners and hit cars. Still 60's today.

I'd be conflicted on whether to spread the Quick Joe over the sidewalk or dump it over his head to see if it thaws his heart.

We got anywhere from 22"-28" in our area. Our town learned from the storm a few years ago where downed branches caused power outages for 10 days. The town crews have been trimming trees along the roadways ever since...very few outages here, but if you look in the wooded areas there are lots of new downed branches. So the hard work paid off for town crews, utility crews and EMS personnel.

We had about 12-14 inches here. Light stuff that with the wind left bare patches in places. No power loss. Like CTdon said, heavy pruning the last two years paid off. Sorry tree huggers! No delay for school today which surprised me. Side roads look slick.

Just saw this and it reminded me of some of the posts in this thread.

I love the fact that there is no snow on the ground but the principal is cancelling school. I'm assuming he's a fairly cool principal in order to do this.

Sleet here. I'd take snow over that.
