Coon, 12 - 16 inches of snow coming this weekend. Environment Canada says a lot less, but the local weatherman in Presque'Isle ,Maine really doubts it as there is a severe winter storm warning forecast over there starting tomorrow and into Sunday morning. We are having what they call a 'storm bomb' with two merging lows. One off the coast and one from the Great Lakes. Winter's here. ;D
Move'n on.

It's about time you easterners get winter.  We have ahd more than our share already.

Hope you got everything ready for the snow removal..  You better find you No.7 Scoop Shovel and get it all pollished up. :D :D

No, I got my No.7 snow blower all fueled up and ready to run the guantlet. I hope the cold wind don't pack the snow hard or it's going to be like work.  ::) Well now I can get the snowshoes out that I ain't needed in 2 years and break trails to confuse the border patrol fly boys. :D :D
Move'n on.

It's not doing too much right now, and we have 4 inches since 6:30 am. I blew snow awhile ago and ready for another dump if it should arrive.
Move'n on.

Never did much after I blew snow yesterday afternoon, maybe an inch on the front step. Wind is blowing though. I was out at 5:00 am cleaning the drifted snow off and walked down to the shop and back up with the blower. We got 5 inches all together here in the storm (10 inches Total Accum. since Jan 1st), I measured where the snow doesn't blow much. There are some tall drifts, maybe 3 feet. I seen the stars out, so I don't know if it's all over or what. Wasn't much of a 'storm bomb'. I think the fuse burnt out. :D It rained in Saint John, and probably up into Sussex, and +4.4 C according to CBC's website. It's gone down to 18 F here from a high of about 30 F yesterday. Tried to take a picture of the ruler, but couldn't focus in the dark.
Move'n on.

Swamp watch out.  The storm could still be building elsewhere.  We have had that a few times this winter.  You think its all over and you settle in for the night with clear skies outside.  Before morning it is snowing and blowing like you wouldn't believe.  You're gonna get a good dump yet.  Just wait and see. ;)

Here is some winter pics around my house.  I did drive in the blizzard last week that reaped havoc on Alberta.  From Edmonton to Peace River I counted 45 people off the road, 11 roll-overs, however did not have my camera with me.  We have more snow up here this year already than we did all last winter put together.  Anyhow, enjoy the pics.
