I'm so sick of winter this year. I've gotten stuck more times this year than in my previous 25 years of driving.

Here's from about 2 weeks ago when we were dumped on with 14" of snow:


Here is from 2 days ago:



And here is just a minute ago when I looked out the windows:

Probably the minority here, but we love, love, love our snow! Today is March 17, and we have plenty more coming - the calender may signal 'Spring', but "Mother Nature" will hail Spring when she will. Until then, I enjoy the crisp air, and snowy treks out to the horses - then out to the woods where I know I'll find many new blooms and creatures when Spring does decide to come :)

Normally, I liked snow. Now that we live out in the country with about a 1/2 mile driveway, ... It sucks! Any north wind and the last 1/3 of our driveway gets full of snow that even a 4x4 truck can't get through.

I resent every flake that falls at this point in the year!

We had 6 inches of snow fall over Sunday and last night. So this morning my sister and I went out to clear it.



The grader showed up and he tried to clear the berm away that was by the road



Then he waved me out of the way


And did this for us!


I still had to shovel half the driveway, but I was so thankful he came and did what he did!


We have soooo much snow!


My van that hasn't been used since January 1st this year


And right now after shoveling out the driveway, I am shaky. I guess I'm out of shape. I'll get my sister to take some pictures of the driveway after I got done with it.

That was nice of the driver to do that for you! They're not allowed to do that for ppl where we live - my husband has a plow on his truck, so that's extremely helpful.

I'm not sure rules of what grader operators are or aren't allowed to do here. I know that we have payed the grader to grade our driveway in the summer when we lived in Melville a couple times.

We live on a First Nation Reservation (the resort part of it), so not sure as to rules, it there are any. It was a FN fellow driving the grader. I was quite happy!

^^ that's was the view from my livingroom window at about 10 a.m.


Horses aren't impressed


My pickup is also now white instead of blue


We've gotten over a foot of snow so far and the whole eastern side of the state is now travel advised aka "stay your stupid butt at home"

I'm hearing you! Yours sounds just like ours, only a tad longer. My husband has to keep it constantly plowed, or else we'd be hosed! Our house sits on top of a hill @ 1,300 ft, and the weather off of Lake Michigan keeps us challenged, believe me! :)

Since we're talking weather even though it isn't snow related:
