Hey what? You guys don't believe scientific data gathered from the past 138 years! Why the earth's only been around 4 billion or so years... That's a fair sample...

I'm with ya! I love hearing about how this cold weather is unprecedented and a clear indication of climate change. Then in the next statement they say how it hasn't been this cold since 1978! Well,.... That is what is called a precedent! ;-) They're cycles baby, cycles!

3 hour snowblow fest and it is still coming down like gangbusters. Had to snowblow a path for the kids to play.

Maybe get out and drive a little tonight...

That's something else! You look well setup to handle it, though! Tight squeeze for the Defender! Nice cover. Oh, and you left your lights on ;-)

After cleaning the driveway and walks for a couple hours I made him the box (on the right side) out of old 2x8's while he and his buddy worked on the drop in and setting the pvc pipe that he is popping off in the pic. He ended up getting 270's a few try's later. We will set up some more items this weekend as long as the snow stays.

Awesome! You're quite the Dad! Well done! Even more so that you raised a skier, and not another snowboarder! ;-) ..... hide

We ended up at just about 2 feet plus some drift. This picture below is in my driveway heading out for some fun about midway through the storm. Loved it!

Two feet of snow and never touched a shovel.

Followed storm from London.

Snow Bunny in Mystic

Hello from Mystic, CT! We took the D90 out for a little stroll after the snow slowed down. We got about 2+ ft dumped on us here on the coast. Christocat only ran us off the road once while relieving our cabin fever! Ha! Attached are pics of the embankment coming up to my door and Chris digging out the snow with his hands (no roof rack for our upcoming move means no shovel...whoops!).

Hope you all stayed safe and sane!

xx RRR

I didn't run us OFF the road, it just wasn't the plowed portion of the road...That happened to be pretty deep.

David... where did you get that cover for your 90?

I have been trying to find something that will cover the truck with rack & snorkel.
