Reached 40F here, never rained since before noon. :) So much for their 2" rain. Not going to happen with a storm crossing the continent, runs out of steam by the time it hits here.

Spent the better part of the afternoon in the tractor pushing drifts out of the way. Some were up to the windows in the cab. Thankfully the wind has died down so the drifts shouldn't keep growing.

Just reading on the local news site and about 60 miles north of here in the deep snow belt this recent storm put them at 331 inches or 27.5 feet of snowfall for the season.... Makes our 280 inches or 23 feet here not seem quite so bad. Haha

You must be talking about the twin lake , Houghton area. I have spent quite a bit of time up there snowmobiling. My friend has a hunting shack just north of Bruce's crossing. I have another close friend that lives in Watson just north of eskie I go visit about once a year.

Calumet has the most snow. Houghton and Twin Lakes are ahead of our 280 but not quite to 300 last I heard.

Just 32 here this morning, and about 1/2 mile visibility back through the meadows!

We have about 1 inches of new snow this morning!

The sun,we have seen it. Two days in a row. For about 2 hours each day. ;D Comes out for that long than it's night. But at least we know it's above that gray and white stuff in the sky.

Still in the low 70s @ 1130 tonight. Saw the thermometer bounce around the low 80s today ... but at least it wasn't humid and had a good breeze blowing.

35F here before the sun rises. At least the mercury is on the top side of ice formation.  ;D

Searched high and low all over Carleton Co. for some new pants and bibs. Same story as before,  had to resort to the mouse click. Fine by me if merchants don't want to have stock on hand, saves me money. Can't blame the Walmart's for their losses. ;D

A little sleet at home, but all rain now 20 miles WSW. Supposed to rain all day

I took the snow-blower off the Kubota yesterday and am putting the mower deck on today, hope this is not a mistake.

Reached 42 today, was warm when the sun was out, cold when it was behind clouds. No wind for a change. ;D Just watched the birds today, and those robins when there are 30 on a patch of lawn, sure pull a lot of worms in an hour. :D

Been seeing the turkey vultures the last two days feed on a dead coon. ;D
