    Guess we were having too much good weather here compared to the US East and Midwest states, so it was snowing when I got up this morning and the weather crystal ball says more is due in the next week to 10 days.

    @Atlas; You got snow on your side of the mountain?

    I can see it on the mountain tops around me, but it's still raining here. 3 inches of rain in two days. We are expecting snow tomorrow and the next day, so I'm ready. The generator is ready to go and the tractor is set to play the driveway.

    Are you holding up ok? I hope that it stays nice and toasty warm in the house for you.

    Beware of letting your tractor play by itself, they have no self control.
    We're fine here, only a dusting of snow and it isn't (yet) sticking to the asphalt. But that may change tonight...
    The 'furnace monster", who lives in the living room closet, only came on once last night, so it's not really cold yet.

    I'm hoping to get a little side money doing driveways with it. All of that stuff goes to the prep funds.

    Ah! Makes sense, so let the tractor play then, but check its pockets when it comes home...

    @Atlas, did the snow land on your side too?

    Its forecast to start any minute. We recieved 5 inches of rain in the last 48 hours, it's been an incredible storm so far. The snow looks like it comes as the last wave of this storm, but we are forecasted for snow 5 days out 7.

    We only got about 1/2" of snow last night, but it is cold enough to stick now. Weather says more snow and rain for at least a week. So far, it has been minimal rain, we need more as snow in the mountains to refill the water table.

    Yup, that's what it looks like here too. More forecast for the next week to ten days. Much colder nights coming too. the furnace came on a lot last night.

    We are looking at highs in the low 30's to lows in the teens all week. Good thing we have lots of fire wood.

    If you could I could load you up for years. We have more trees to cut still, but in trying to use up the old ones first.

    Is it still legal to remove wood from California?

    Doubt it, but the check point is going the other way.

    I wish that we got snow here. I don't think that it's ever snowed where I live. At least it isn't too far of a drive to go visit.

    @jdp, If we believe Al Gore, it will never snow again, anywhere on Earth. I can just see the look on his face when he is buried in 10 ft of powder snow...

    The weekend looks like snow. My weather forecast says lots more in about 5-6 days, lasting for a week. I'm not sure how much to trust that longer range forecast... They cry "wolf" frequently and then it doesn't happen...
