The place is looking good. Love the smell of fresh paint.
Now for a pic. Let's see, you put the lime in the coconut... oops, not that -

Okay, that didn't work.
Have to study on this a while.
Anyway, welcome to the R section!

AHA! It helps when you RTFM.
If you know what that is then you can tell how much snow we have. That was 2 days ago, and it was snowing then, and there's more to come.
But at least I'm not mowing grass. :)
Maybe for the person who can guess when all this &%%((%# snow disappears. :mad:
I may not have to cut grass until July.
9.4" of snow forecast for Mon-Tues. o_O
Now it looks like the snow is going to be a day late. But they're saying this -
Blizzard conditions possible. Total snow accumulations over 12 inches possible
Sometimes they're wrong.
But it was nice today. Started out with a wake up call from one of the locals -

I miss the zebras on my G9.
Dodged the snow bullet. Storm went farther east than planned. Got a lot of wind but maybe just an inch of snow.
Eastern half of state got hammered -
Ashley-14.5 inches of snow.
Ellendale-10.0 inches of snow.
Edgely-10.3 inches of snow.
LaMoure-12.0 inches of snow.
Jamestown-12.0 inches of snow.
Valley City-10.8 inches of snow.
Fargo-8.2 inches of snow.
Wahpeton-9.0 inches of snow.

Add 50 MPH winds to that. Roads were closed for 3 days, just opened yesterday.
With any luck that's the last one for this season. They even say we might hit 70 degrees for the first time this year on Monday.
But they might be wrong.
It's back! After three weeks and a record breaking heat wave, the merry go round has shed it's load of snow -

Now we have this -

* WHAT...Flooding caused by snowmelt continues.

It got so nice I even fired up the Harley (old pic) -

  • Panasonic - DMC-FZ1000

and then it got cold again, so she's back under her blanket. And life goes on.
