Can you see over the top of the snow, Poncho?


Thinking about how you fared in that snowy blast that hit the east.

Hasn't been too bad....Pretty steady snow, we seem to get an inch or so every couple of days....Lots of seat time on my tractors. Between that and working a few days a week, I manage to stay awake.

Sorry I havent been on here for a while, computer bit the dust, took me a while to get all my bookmarks back....lol

Glad to see you're well. I guess that's not bad for you folks in the north, that was pretty much a normal winter for us in the Sierras, but after slipping on an icy patch and breaking a leg pretty badly, and following it up with another slip on an icy patch almost exactly to the day a year later, we decided to find warmer climes. Las Vegas qualifies in aces or spades. A funny thing happened when we were moving here, though: On the day I drove over from our "temporary" place in Bakersfield, California to pick up the keys to our "dream home", it was cold and grey - December 21, 2003. I got the keys, and got the painter we had contracted with started on repainting the entire interior, took care of utilities and other mundane stuff, and got a room at a local's casino/hotel. I was planning to head back to Bakersfield the next day for Christmas after checking on the painters. When I got up in the morning, I didn't look outside until I had gotten dressed and re-packed, and ready to go. I decided to open the drapes, and looked out on a snow covered city. How ironic was that? I knew it could snow here, it is not a too uncommon occurrence in the desert regions of the southwest, but the irony of that instant just made me laugh. In the fourteen years that we have been here, it has snowed enough to cover three or four times, and I just hibernate until it melts off; I don't have any trouble falling down on dry pavement these days, no sense in tempting fate on an icy, snowy day.

Keep safe, and look forward to spring.
