    It's called a nor'easter and you usually see at least three or four every winter.
    Sorry guys, but historical sales data has demonstrated that the terms "winter weather" and "nor'easter" do not result in the desired level of frenzied buying of milk sandwiches that our advertisers want to achieve. Our focus groups have determined that our new "bomb cyclone" marketing campaign has a greater chance of success.

    See, and @Danke could fly in to watch as well.

    Alton Bay Seaplane Base (FAA LID: B18) is a state-owned, public-use seaplane base located in a cove of Lake Winnipesaukee. The base is two nautical miles (4 km) north of the central business district of Alton Bay, in Belknap County, New Hampshire, United States.[1]

    Facilities and aircraft

    Alton Bay Seaplane Base has one seaplane landing area designated 1/19 and measuring 2,600 x 100 feet (792 x 30 m). For the 12-month period ending 31 December 2011, the airport had 600 general aviation aircraft operations, an average of 50 per month.

    During the winter months, the base may seasonally open an ice runway instead of the normal seaplane landing area. This is the only FAA approved ice runway in the contiguous United States. The earliest the ice runway has opened is January 10. It is required to close no later than March 15.

    Today I split about a rick and a half of ash to mix in with about three rick of wood I have stacked up in the driveway . The driveway wood is leftovers from last winter and the winter before . I think with the three rick I have in the basement it will probably last for Jan & Feb . It is supposed to warm up now next couple of weeks to avg ( 37 ) highs or above so I do not expect to need much until after that . I have conquered the winter , thank the Lord.

    Got down in the 20s here last week..purty cold for southeast Texas. We “may” have had a snow flurry. Of course there was a run on bread and milk. Kidding aside, we need a few freezes to kill the dang fleas and skeeters from Harvey.

    Lookin' on the bright side.

    Wet here,, and large earth is moving around,,
    but it's January and there are flowers blooming outside the front door.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

A week from today back to highs in the 40's for a week . It is going to be really muddy when this melts , the ground was saturated on top even before this .

    Currently in Kasilof, AK and it's crazy warm for this time of year. The drive here was so different than other years during winter. Hardly any ice on the bay and not enough snow for good skiing. Must be that damn global warming...

    I do not shovel mine . I just put it in four wheel drive until I get out of the driveway and switch it back to two wheel drive when I get on the black top .

    Believe it or not that's perhaps the best way to deal with it. A lawyer I know once told me that the courts have ruled that if you do nothing and someone slips on your ice it's considered an "act of God" and you're are not liable. If on the other hand you want to "help" others and you shovel your snow but there's a slippery patch and someone slips on it you can be sued because your snow and ice removal efforts were inadequate.

    Well foulk me runnin...
