We might actually see a bit of snow this weekend.
This was yesterdays forecast. They really like to play it up by showing us a worst case scenario. By last night we were already down from 20-30" to 12-20" range here just north of Denver.
I also think my forecast is just as likely. :ROFLMAO: I will have the ATV with the plow gassed up and ready just in case we actually see some.

Good luck to yall. I know folks in you area look forward to it. It will be almost 70 today on the NC coast. Would be higher but the water temp is still in the upper 40's so it will keep us cooler.

LOL It was in the low 70's earlier this week. Made me ready for summer for sure. I do enjoy a good snow storm every now and then, I just don't like how the media always tries to play it up big before they really have a clue. A good wet snow would do us a world of good. It's been a dry winter.

Ended up in the 2' range. Gave up plowing after the 3rd time. I ran out of places to push it to, and ended up pushing a bunch up onto my front lawn. I might get out this afternoon after work now that the snow has stopped and the wind quit blowing, or I might just say screw it and let mother nature take care of it. :ROFLMAO: Supposed to be back up into the upper 50's, low 60's by the end of the week.

LOL. I hear ya. We desperately needed it though, so I'm okay with it. Super heavy and wet. They are estimating about 4"+ of water out of it last I heard. May even be higher than that.

Sitting here in my home office watching my deadbeat neighbor on his POS open cab skidsteer desperately trying to clear the drifts so he can get to work. It's still blowing like hell here. Usually he just powers through the drifts and let's me clean up the mess. Two weeks ago I spent 4 hours of equipment time rescuing some of his friends who for some completely unknown reason decided to drive a 1/2 mile past my place, on a completely unmaintained road,, bury their jeep, destroy a universal joint. It was -20 that night. Neighbor had the balls to tell his friends that since I'm "unemployed" and he had to go to work I could rescue them.:mad: LOL...I make more money on one deal than he does in a year. Laughing as I get another cup of coffee, throw some more wood on the fire, and watch the circus.

Nice! I wish we got that much. It's hard to tell as it's been blowing sideways for the last two days. Guessing 4" max piles up in drifts. Going to be a bad fire season here I'm thinking. I'd rather clear snow now than stress over fire all summer and fall.

I have to agree with you.. Born and raised in rural Minnesota and now in Calif. I still drive up to get stuck with my snowmobile to remind me.. but living in it takes an acquired taste..
Thanks for the pics' Bob!

For the first time since I've lived in this house (17 years) we had snowmobiles running around on the streets. I wasn't to popular with them when I would get done plowing. I push the snow down the driveway and across the street. That leaves about a 30' wide stretch of bare pavement in front of the house. :) However, it didn't take long before there were a couple of fresh inch's of snow for them to ride on again.

I purposely keep about a 1/4 mile of road on either side of our drive down to the dirt to keep sleds off. Not that I hate sleds, but their traffic compacts the snow into ice and makes the roads a royal bitch to clear. A million acres to sled on here, and there are those guys that insist that riding the subdivision roads is their "right." It's also my right to watch them ride a 1/2 mile of dirt I guess. :cool:

riding sleds on the road is hard on them, difficult to steer.. much easier to throw it on the deck and get to the ride area.. must be a flat lander thing!

LOL. Flatlander... I can hop in the truck and drive 1 hour and be over 12,000' in elevation. We must have different definitions of a flatlander. :ROFLMAO:
I think it was more of a "let's take advantage of some good snow and go play" kind of thing. We just don't get that kind of snow here very often any more.

It would be tough to move away from this area. I love the high country. This trailhead is about 45 minutes from the house. Not many trails here will get you much higher than this. 13,251' shown on my GPS.
