Same thing here PaPow.

I was beginning to see the possibility of using my range in a bit and the blizzard dumped more snow on it. Then I put more snow into snowbanks and made the problem worse. But I need places to put the white stuff.

Blizzard #2 (screw the name "Stella", what moron decided to name snowstorms!?? It's blizzard #2*) was more intense than Blizzard #1, but with less snow.

*Not picking on you. I know that "they" have been calling it "Stella". They're idiots. I think I'm going to start naming rainstorms just to deliberately confuse the issue nationwide. I think the morons at the Weather Channel are behind the naming of snowstorms. Flogging is too good for them if that's the case.

HAAAAAAAAAAAA yeah buddie, naming storms.... WTF...???? I dont know about these weather people... goofie libtards i guess.

Yep, we`ve got no place left to push snow either, so the next round coming this weekend will do us in i think. They`re predicting another foot at least. Gawd i hope not.

It looks like it's going to pass to our south. We've had enough snow too.

The longer the melt is put off the higher the chances that when the weather does turn we'll get flooding. We won't flood, but many are in the way of flood water.

You could try hitting the mailbox from that barn. You know, test your skills in adverse conditions...

Man, I'd hate to have to live there!

Hope everything works out OK for y'all, but I don't think you'd care much for our hurricanes, either.

At least we don't usually get them when it's cold.

It was 38F here on the water this AM; coldest we've seen so far this year.

Yeah Rick, after one of our storms we generally have something to come home to. When we do get a hurricane, and we do get them, the winds are in the 80 mph range. Not much different than a blizzard in that regard. I much prefer our hurricanes to one of yours. Pretty much every area has it's built in weather hazards. One chooses the threat.

And melting asphalt temps later this summer. Don't forget that.

One picks the weather. I absolutely hate the heat. I can wear more clothes to stay warm, but I can only remove so many and at some point (even nude) doesn't get one cool.

TMI.

The snow finally melted away from most of my construction sites, and around our house, so we have plenty of room if you need a place to store some of your snow.

I'm a general contractor. I've done roofing and siding every summer for the past 8 years, sometimes in well over 100 deg. heat. Add the 20 extra degrees on top of those asphalt shingles, and the hurried pace, it's a wonder these guys working with me don't faint and fall off the roof (we're all in harnesses, so it's almost impossible to get hurt). I find that a gallon container of water, frozen overnight, lasts one guy for about 2 hours up there.

Lots of water = lots of sweat, so wear the right clothing (wicking) and it will help keep you cooler.

KRW, yeah, I worked in 140F heat and wicking fabric does work great. I would sweat so much that the salt line could be easily seen on the fabric, but I wasn't alone in that. But I find that very few people living in hot climates don't also live in A/C of some type if they can afford it. That's a contradiction (hypocritical?) IMO. If they like the heat why don't they actually bring it into their homes and live in it? Why do they need A/C?

I don't like the cold (it can kill), so I wear clothing and have heat. I don't much like the few hot days we have so I have A/C. I also readily admit it. When I worked in that 140 heat I could easily tolerate 90 and be comfortable and the wife would go bonkers w/o the A/C being on. Being retired and years away from the job, now I have "normal" northern heat tolerance. That means I don't much care for it and am much more comfortable in the cold. Plowing after the last blizzard I was quite comfortable shoveling those areas I couldn't get to with the plow in my t-shirt at 30 some odd degrees with wind and bright sun.

Again, we choose what we want. I don't much care for the heat and I have yet to see anyone living in a hot climate that brought that heat into their home if they could afford the alternative, even if it was only a fan.
