My Daughter's in a drift.
« on: February 24, 2014, 09:34:55 PM »
This is Stacy's neighborhood. When we were up there two weeks ago, you could see just a few inches of the garage doors on the summer places a couple doors down. I'm not sure where J.D. and Stacy are going to keep putting snow.  It's about 45 miles north west of us, in Ron Scott's backyard. :)

Oh my.  :o  My mind can't wrap itself around that amount of snow and misery.

One day I hope to make a trip and see such with my own eyes.  Maybe not.

That looks like our back yard after four straight days of snow.

A few of my family members live about 1/4 mile Up the road from me right on the shores of Superior. After the last few days the drifts are up to and over the roofs on the single story houses and to the 2nd story windows on the taller houses. They have had to close down a few sections of the highway along the lake until they could get in and dig the drifts out. With all the ice out on the lake that the wind just blows from Canada picking up snow along the way and it doesn't stop until it hits the beach.

Nobody is whining. Just doing a little show and tell.  This weather gets a little tiresome, but we survive it just fine. I'm afraid it's flat out kill someone from La in less than 3 days though. ;D

It's all making sense now, Florida in the winter, up north for the summer,   that is a pile of snow. Talked with an old friend, church lady last week end, she has been drifted in as well,, just south of Minnesota. ,  I reckon the yoopers will be scoopers for awhile, ;D
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

When I was in landscaping, I had customers that came here for the summer. In the fall, they would go back to South Africa. For the summer. :D

Looks like a good excuse to snuggle in under the covers for a bit longer.  No point in digging out unless you really, really need to get somewhere.
