Snowed in
« on: December 10, 2008, 06:18:18 PM »


That's why we're leaving this country but obviously we aren't doing it quickly enough.  The radio says they got 30 cm (about a foot) of snow overnight here.  You can see by the power pedestal that they've already got around 2 feet here.  Apparently last winter they got 18 feet.  I don't want to be here for that.  I've got the jewellery in a pail in the back of the truck but I really don't want to put it on.  Saturday morning is D-day.  One way or another we are getting out of here and across the line into New York.

Jack,

I know as Florida residents we are supposed to tease are Northern Friends about the cold, snow, slush, etc.......during the Winter months.

But I think I will pass on this one and lie in waiting for a nice storm in say January or Febuary to pick on them.... ;D :P

There is only 1 thing worse than seeing snow days on the school calender. . . . .

As much as I dislike snow & cold, I'd really rather not put up with a hurricane!  :o   :P   :-*


Everything has it's price . . . . .  ;D  ;D  ;D

Yup.  Every place has its good and bad.  That's one of the things I like about a home on wheels.  And that's what makes snowbirding so great for those who can.

   Oh that snow looks so wonderful........We have nothing
 on the ground and we'll be at - temps by Sunday. (bad for winter wheat)


  Bob are you going to put jewelery on the steers also? Nothing feels wierder than
 to have the front slide out :(...... but I haven't heard of anybody doing that......

  Hope Jorgito is doing better with snow like that you could loose him in a snow bank on your walks.

For all the craziness that L.A. has, I'll take my sunny 72 degree weather we'll have today.  Good Luck, TomC

Bob you lucky bugger, getting out of here. Watching the weather forcast it doesn't look like you've had the cold, here in Manitoba it is just getting stupid cold, maybe you can pick up a hitchhiker around Austin,mb??

Have a great trip
Have Fun!!
