Same in Washington. Due to El Nino, according to the climatologists.

Man they are buried from Central Jersey down to Virgina though. I mean, we're a LITTLE used to that up here. But that's a lotta snow for Northern Dixie.

Actually to me, Northern Dixie starts in Delaware. Right by that gigantic Harley dealership on the south end of the Delaware Bridge on the south end of the NJ Tpke.

That HD Dealership is like a giant sign screaming 'We don't like you Honda sissy-boys down here boy'.

And they don't.

I love running the hound on the Pcad Estate. We have 6.6 acres and I employ all of it in this endeavor. It is rather mountainous here. I love it.

there's about 1inch of snow on the ground outside now.

and I'll get to ride that with my bike.

I should put the rear winter stud on, but I'm too lazy and I know the roads weren't frozen today when I was coming home.
