I got a choice.

I got an option. I'm trying to decide whether to use it.

I have held off any travel for the last year. I was gonna go to Floriduh for Christmas, but that didn't happen. And I was gonna go in January, but that didn't happen - I didn't know if Old Georg, there in the Caymans, would order up paychecks for more shock troops.

Now we have the idiocy of triple-masking, but I have a rudimentary medicine cabinet.

And now, winter...as noted...has finally come. Snowing hard all day today. Temperature right now is 23, and that's the warmest it's been in 36 hours.

I could just load up, and blow this icebox for six weeks. I have the money; I even have the road food. I have a van I can sleep in, easily...even got electric heat, if I want to plug in somewhere.

Trying to decide.

My drive way is iced in and it's not melting off anytime soon..., but at my age, I usually like it to be at least 60 and that requires snowmobile gear.
and my usually cold ass can completely admit:
I'd love to jump a snowmobile

one of the powered rides i've not controlled, even if i'm in full control or not

and powder can make the landing softer...and make the body easier to hide from the passing snowmobilers...probably why i've not done it

:beer:


snicker...yet

question:
does anything 'flick' off the back seat of a snowmobile, in deep snow, easily?

Just another day in paradise. 30 inches of snow last Monday-Tuesday. Another 8 inches last night. More forecast for Tuesday and Friday.
Another 2 inches this morning, 5 inches forecast for the day. More coming on Thurs-Fri.

Why is that?

Doesn't Ohio get snow anymore? It's been 13 years since I left...has Glow Bull Warming brought them into the sunshine?

Was a wet snow, tried using the snow blower - to wet.
Got the tractor out - put on the blade - snow gone off drive now.
Almost nice out in the 30s.

However, I think the mail lady is stuck somewhere out there, as she hasn't showed herself yet.

Dave, your turn is coming, Ha! We usually get your left overs unless they go on north.

Our snow was very dry down here in southwest OH. Making snowballs wasn't easy but we'll take whatever we can get. This was the first time I've been able to get the golf cart out and pull the kids around in a few years. My 3 year old was in heaven.

We have also a good real winter here.

But hey, shouldn't we have the Arctic Sea free of ice soon? Ship cruises over the North Pole during midsummer etc? Wouldn't that be nice? Not going to happen if the climate change does not kick in better.

Uh, I still have green lettuce & chives & onions & more growing in my garden.... No tomatoes though...
Kind of "winter" that I don't dislike, after years of snow shoveling...

Rain all fall & winter...
The Garonne River, south-west of France, has flooded way over its banks... And the snow hasn't even melted off the two mountain ranges that feed it...

Yep, We had an ice storm last night. Everything here is covered with about a quarter inch + of ice. Currently 21 degrees F with a projected high of 28.

We didn't have a winter here.
Usually get several frosts in a year, we didn't get a single one. Basils always die off, this year they just looked sad for 3 months and now are pushing out new growth.
Low rainfall so far, if we don't get some heavy spring rains then it's gonna be another long and expensive fire season.

And what about Venice! Didn't Algore say it would be totally underwater by 2010? The place is drying up. Maybe Gretta shamed the gods or something.

Good gawd the place must stink...

The Weather Girls are constantly trying to gin up panic. Back 25 years ago, when this trend started, they'd close schools in ADVANCE of a storm, before the first flakes fell. Now, of course, in most libburl areas, there's no school to close; but still, they want to see idiots lining up at grocers' to buy eggs and bread and toilet paper.

The way the mediuh manipulate and abuse the public, is becoming obvious, undeniable, and criminal. Justice Holmes harumped that no Free Speech mandate gave a speaker the right to scream "Fire!" in a crowded theater. Is that not what these blow-dried kollege grrlz who do Weather...actually do? SPREAD FALSE PANIC.

Turn your idiot box off and keep it off. The mediuh LIES. When you hear something over mass media, it's even-money it's untrue.

Southwest France

One of my plum trees has already shed its blossoms, the other is blooming, as well as the pear tree and the 2 cherry trees. The buds on the fig trees haven't opened yet. My grapes haven't started budding yet.
I bought my potted tomato & bell pepper plants, will put them in the ground shortly.
Nice to have "early spring" in this region (near Bordeaux).
We seldom have below freezing weather, sometimes frost in the morning. (Low altitude in a wide valley, surrounded by a town.) Lots of rain in the fall, but often long dry spells in the summer.

sounds like some beautiful weather

at 44.83 latitude the weather is similar to Port Angeles Washington , a tad better in Bordeaux for sure

you will have to share some photos of your garden in the Random Pictures Thread

Snowing sideways in South Central Oregon. Not fluffy snow either, it's the kind that sicks to stop signs and telephone poles. Crappy day for sure.

We get the benefit of the Gulf Stream, warm water from the Caribbean, skirting past Florida and crossing the North Atlantic to the north east. The East Coast of the US gets the cold currents coming southward down from the Arctic, past Maine (where the water is freezing in August!)....

So completely different weather at the same latitudes...
