Gonna Have Some More Fun!

The Maritime provinces are being hit with a Nor'easter plus a weather bomb again :!: :D :D :D

Been snowing since about 3 or 4 am and we have winds in excess of 110kph or 70mph. These are supposed to be gusts, :? but they are basically sustained. :shock: I just watched the 15/40meter element on my Thunderbird go perfectly vertical. If it wasn't for the stiffeners that keep the ends of my boom horizontal, it would have done continuous 360's!

I guess we have about 7 or 8 inches down, but with the high winds, I have drifts in my driveway :oops: :oops: what driveway :?: :D over 3 feet high. The adirondack deck chairs that I made, well, they blew off the deck :shock: about a half hour ago, and the birds are comical as can be as they fight to gain a little headway getting to the suet blocks 8)

Some areas such as the Halifax basin where Wade lives have well over 50cm of snow already, and I have a feeling that although it was only forecast for a total of 25cm in my area (we are well past that already), we may end up with more than the last big storm - possibly 60cm or more.

I guess that means I am going to get some more serious seat time :!: :D :D :D

Wish you all were here :!: :D

I really need to find a way to put up a weather station for my wife's computer - that way we can have some real time data and maybe some live cam coverage as well!!!!

Nuts to those guys, Rudi, I'm with you!!! We're looking to get snow over the weekend, and I can't wait, and neither can Percy!

In eastern Mo., we had 68 today, but 4 days ago high was 20 with a low of 6. I prefer this weather.

I'm about an hour from Rudi and getting hit with the same mess,, I'm with you guys!! I'd rather have high 60's with sun!! :roll:

I'll take my seat time in the sunshine, yarding trees with my tractor and winch, thanks!!!!

It is almost midnight and the totals for today have come in. 2 feet of snow in Moncton, Riverview and Dieppe. Depending on where you are, some have drifts from 2 foot to 5 foot high. I can't even see the shop door from the house :!:

I guess I am gonna hafta dig a bit before I can get Ellie out of the shop to start plowing :lol:

I love winter! Oh and it hasn't stopped yet either, so I expect we will probably get another 5 or 10 cm's of snow overnight.

Saturday we are supposed to get hit with that Colorado low that is headed our way as well -- I wonder how much more snow that one will bring :?: :wink:
