Hi neighbor, this is the view from the west shore



Thats my leveled f-150 sitting in my driveway. I don't think a bike ride is on my agenda anytime soon.

Ditto here in the French Creek valley. We have drifts of three feet, and the roads are still snow covered. And three more snowstorms predicted for the next two weeks.

That picture was from Saturday, we've since had an extra 15 inches dropped on Wednesday. Not a significant amount to the northerners, but it's plenty for this area where drivers go into full on R-tard mode at the mention of snow.

Yeah no kidding. People were still driving nutty on the way into work today.
I don't really mind the snow, I am a 4 seasons kind of guy. However, I am good for this year.

Wow, the video was cool! SO I'm thinking you guys have to dig out the trench for the tube run? Looks like fun! If I hadthat snow, I'd dig out a whole Disneyland full of rides. Up, I;m the guy that had all the neighborhood kids playing wiffle ball in the street when my kids were young!

Yeah the girls couldn't get down the hill (too much snow) so I dug them a path and then decided to go a little crazy. After the last snow I even took the snowblower down the hill so they could walk up the hill easier. My oldest told me I was awesome. How many years until she stops saying that

Mine stopped with the comments at about 13 when they figure they're too old to hang with Dad. But at about 23, they continue where they left off, but it gets even better!
