Its been crazy, even here in the central region of NY. We just keep getting more and more white fluff, and running out of room. Unfortunately, the 4x4 is down due to the rear calipers coming apart, so its slow going in the Buick for the moment. They really don't know how to take care of roads here, which sucks for those of us who end up on fire police duty because people forget how to drive in the stuff. Spring can't come soon enough.

beyond sick of this crap, they have had a bunch of snow days so they started with a two hour delay which im sure is some funding thing, so i let my daughter stay home. not much sense in kids standing out there for who knows how long for them to go to school for a few hours and come home home.

Cold here too. Tomorrow high is going to be around 9 or so with the low tomorrow night around -10. Windchills all day tomorrow will be around 25-35F.

Sunday is the real killer. 0 degrees or less for the high, with windchills around the same. Sunday nights low could be as low as -20F actual temp.

I started my snowmobile today and it took 3 pulls so that is cool. I am supposed to ride on Sunday, but I probably won't be out too long.

The trick is going back in there, and not getting lost. lol When I first bought this property I walked back there I did get lost a couple of times. It doesn't take much to start to get turned around.

This afternoon I will get my snowmobile out and hit up the trail in the woods.
