Hyar comes winter again


Recommended Posts

Laid in extra firewood. Fueled up the 4 wheeler and snow thrower. Sprayed slippery stuff on the sat dish and plow blade. Have sufficient liquor. They’re saying maybe 15” of white stuff this week.  Probably won’t see the sun till Thursday. What a difference a day makes.

What is this “slipper stuff” you speak of? Does it work on painted surfaces? Glass? Just curious. 
 

I may need some in 9 or 10 months. ;)

Our snow just about melted and we're getting a storm in Colorado tonight and through Wednesday apparently. I think I'm over the snow now. Especially with so many idiots that don't know how to drive in it packed around me.

Same storm. I expect it’ll get worse as it heads East. Look out Kansas!

Seems like we've been getting all 4 seasons every week lately.

About twelve below zero last night, light snow, and wind. It was so blindingly white out this morning, I had a time picking out my road. Fortunately, after 48 years up here, I know where it's at... mostly - I've driven off it in similar featureless conditions a couple times in the past. :mellow:

This side of the state lots of good reflective markers, even on paved county roads and the new rumble strips in the center.  Do you have those out west?  We'll be getting -16° tonight so it's coming this way fast.

Down at the highway, yes, but my driveway up here is a mile and a half long. The first mile isn't bad, just stay fifteen feet from the fence and you'll stay on the road, but there's nothing to guide you the rest of the way.

Mine isn't quite that long, around half a mile, but several years ago I started putting in reflective fiberglass stakes to guide my truck and the UTV plow.  Cheap and work great.  You can find them online..  You have to get them in before the frost or drive a hole for each post with a spike.

At least you don’t have to push cold around. :)

I did make some fortifying cinnamon coffee cake before heading out. I have my priorities. ;)

Rye is not terribly far from me, so same weather conditions.
A few differences.
Rye is younger, smarter and better lookin' than me, and instead of taking a walk in the park, I had my Jeep E-checked, hobbled into the BMV in a walking boot and on a cane, renewed my Jeep plates and almost fell over backwards when I stood up.

Of course everyone was looking at me as I recovered from the near-fall, so I whipped off my ballcap, frowned at it and said "Now that's the trouble, my hat was off center!  No wonder I was off balance!"

Saved it with a laugh!

It was 81 yesterday.

 

Forecast says it's going to be in the 80's Wed and Thurs with rain Fri as the front moves through.  Once it rolls through, the bottom's gonna fall out of the temps.

 

The high Saturday is supposed to be 68.:rolleyes:

Only been about 28° here for the past few days. Perfect snow conditions. Got about 5” last night. Maybe another 5-7 tonight. Then nice sun. But it won’t warm up till Sunday. Time for more Tylenol. :lol:
