Supposed to drop to 29° tonight and snow several inches.  Hope the mud freezes.  There nothing worse than a mud and snow slushy!

It's been -30 here and under all the untouched snow it's mud and water as deep as you can dig. If the snow wasn't so deep I would be out sinking some fence posts in the ground and getting a jump on that spring project.

Snowed about 2" at 27° F last night and this morning. Froze and covered up the mud. Warmed up this afternoon and made mud slushies.

Only 6° this morning, now it's 36° and a very light rain!

We'll likely have a glaze on top of the snow in the morning!

Calling for RAIN off and on through the day, it's 44° here right now!   :snowball:

A lot of the snow has already melted and the snow depth has dropped a lot!

Busted water lines all over the county, we warmed up. I had to run in to town for more sharkbites, those things are awesome for a quick fix. Luckily Larry at the building supply saw the forecast and ordered 2 cases. My partner slithered under a house yesterday and patched in 6 of them. Every time we turned on the pump I learned more French  :D.

Around here they sell lots of those shark bite fittings on Friday afternoon to plumbers, you know the Friday afternoon call "its been dripping all week so I thought I better call to get it fixed before the weekend"  ::)
