Burger anyone?

So, it's been snowing here for 24 hours.  We're currently have received about 20" and it's still snowing like mad.  I took a shot of our grill completely entombed in snow.  Behind the grill is a hot tub that is currently not used.  I completely cleared the snow from the hot tub a few hours earlier.

This is a shot out the laundry room door.  This leads to a fenced in area for our dog.  Since she's a small dog, I've already cleared this area TWICE today with the snow blower and it's up to her belly AGAIN.

Wow, you really have snow there! I bet we have less than that, about 30 cm or so.

But if you invite me, less grill some burgers!

I see you got walloped by the storms as well. Get everything dug out again yet?

Dear Woody:

Your pictures of the storm not only measure its impact, but illustrate's man's resourcefullness in dealing with the aftermath. The shots I took myself were awful. I have no skill in this direction.

I occasionally miss the dead of winter snowstorms common to the Adirondacks. I fondly remember nights when the snow had stopped falling, and the moon would come making midnight as bright as high noon.

I also remember getting laid on a bearskin rug in front of the fireplace too. These were the high points of winter. Now I look at my K75 in the garage and I could cry.

I am going to create an "alternate destinations" category on my blog so I can link to non-motorcycle exclusive sites like yours with impunity. I will d this tomorrow, amd your site will be the first listed.

I'm sorry it took me so long t think about this.

Fondest regards,
