Looks like a lot more fun than the way we do it - by hand :(
The hand shoveling is reserved for the cranky teenagers in my house :)

We just finished clearing the driveway, and what you see slid off the roof and re-filled it!

I'll see if I can get a member of the CaSLM to make a bid for that 'snow'.

Have you got a small boat you can ship it to the Romney Marsh area, Lori?

Just come back after a week in Fort William Scotland, which has been having lots of snow for the past week or so, and are they switched on up there compared to us in the south of England.
Here, in the south, an inch or two of snow, and everyting comes to a stop! In Scotland, a couple of feet of it overnight, and it's all gone off the roads by the morning. Almost got stuck in Glencoe on the way back though!!

My 3 aren't that old yet, but for the first time this year, I got them to clear the drive alone, once. Milestone.... :welldone

Kev and thehunt: Shoveling is one thing - can get the teenagers to do that - but cleaning their rooms is an entirely different scenario. My method - get out a giant black trash bag and declare "whatever is on the floor of your room is mine until everything is clean!" ..... they scurry to get the clutter up off the floor :)))

Johh, the tractor and riding lawn mower are in our old barn/stable set up. No horses in those stalls and storage at the moment.... just 6 Devons in the lower pasture. :)

PeeDee - Welcome back :)

O.G. - I do have a small sunfish sailboat, but I fear the cargo space is too small as is the sail!

I think I'm going to try that. Thanks for the idea.

How we shovel snow in Vermont..... with a bucket loader! :w00t:


Wow, I'm very jealous, as I sit her in hot, dry Grenada. It's not rained here for ages...water shortage...I just went to buy a coke and the shopkeeper told me the coke factory didn't have enough water to make more coke...how bad is that!

I'd love to sit in the snow for just a day or two and cool off.

Cheers,
Martin

Hi Old Git,

You do like to keep me busy...that's two songs you've set for me to learn now!

Cheers,
Martin
Let me add a third, "Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun".

Problem:-Can't manage the Coward clipped speech style on the tenor or flute.

Is that really a song? I only know it as a saying. You wouldn't be inventing things to confuse me would you?

Look for Noel Coward's recording....

Years ago I was on a trip to Botswana with some friends. 4 weeks, all guys, one landrover, lots of time... I made the mistake of saying 'No pith helmets' (this was '85 and I knew my friends well... First day, lunch break, hot as anything, they stuck a tape in of Noel Coward singin it it and all three donned pith helmets..... For the first and last time that trip, but it certanily started thigns off with a bang...
