Douginutah Have you been mudding in your driveway again? You boys up north are tired of snow I am tired of MUD. Not enough stars for me to put up. We have a 4x4 farm here and the boys sure are having fun with their trucks out there.

The five foot high snow banks in the yard must have shrank in height by about 6 inches yesterday and it was only about +3 C with no breeze.  Going to be a slushy mess here today with temps of +5C or higher.  I am glad my new front driveshaft for the 4x4 will be here today because the snowpack is going to get awefully soft before it disappears. :D :D

Appoaching 3*'s here. A bit sticky in places, and raining pretty good.

Not even a 1* here...how do you make mud when your living on a pile of rocks? ;D

Kathy is in north east Kansas where it is a definite 5*...school has been closed because the buses can’t run on the country roads. :o

I think that Vermont, Before gravel roads, used to have a two week mudseason vacation for schools. It also was handy to have the kids around for maple pickup.

We've been in the mud for a month now, but we know how to celebrate mud!

I think it's all up in MN, at least there seems to be plenty on top of Gary_C's forwarder (or is that the harvester) :o

No mud here. Road postings just went on the same day they took off the winter weight increases. Now we are under a winter storm warning so we will see what happens.

What little snow we had is almost gone and the ground is still frozen.

Can't say much about that picture yet but the only mud there was at the bottom of that stoopid little duck pond the owner forgot to tell me about.  >:(

Got stopped today pulling load of pulp cedar, my truck was so muddy that the cop just took my word that the license was ok. I could tell he wasn't interested in getting the hands dirty to  check plates.   :D :D

My wife called me at work yesterday to tell me a propane truck was buried in our driveway .He was still there when I got home from work. Anita wound up having to use the neighbors truck to go to work because she couldn't get out.Today I piled hemlock slabs in the crater the truck made until the ice melts  (about 8"deep) and a country boy can survive ...

IT can't make up its mind here, yesterday it was muddy enough I couldn't back the wood trailer all the way to the boiler, yet at 11PM it was cold enough that it was getting stiff again. Last week it rained enough you couldn't roll the wheelbarrow across the yard, then it snowed some more.

I'm ready for summer!!!

Well might be a little mud about June or so here. :D

Our local mud season does not last that long in spring. In about a two week period I can drive the road up to the woodlot after the snow and ice melts off. Some areas are worse where the soil is just mostly clay. Clay roads are like jelly when the road wobbles and ripples as you drive along. :D
Move'n on.

 Here is a tuff call to make as to how long the mud is going to last .  There is a lot of snow on the ground yet , but the ground underneath the snow is not frozen  :-\   When it all starts to melt , soon hopefully , it could go away quite quickly and dry up fast .. or could take a month and be knee deep in muck ...... >:(

We have no snow at present, and little frost. The last couple of days have been windy, and things are drying up nicely. Still time for a good old fashioned nor'easter to cover things up again however.
