That's why we're leaving this country but obviously we aren't doing it quickly enough.  The radio says they got 30 cm (about a foot) of snow overnight here.  You can see by the power pedestal that they've already got around 2 feet here.  Apparently last winter they got 18 feet.  I don't want to be here for that.  I've got the jewellery in a pail in the back of the truck but I really don't want to put it on.  Saturday morning is D-day.  One way or another we are getting out of here and across the line into New York.

Jack,

I know as Florida residents we are supposed to tease are Northern Friends about the cold, snow, slush, etc.......during the Winter months.

But I think I will pass on this one and lie in waiting for a nice storm in say January or Febuary to pick on them.... Grin Tongue

There is only 1 thing worse than seeing snow days on the school calender. . . . .

As much as I dislike snow & cold, I'd really rather not put up with a hurricane!  Shocked   Tongue   Kiss

Yup.  Every place has its good and bad.  That's one of the things I like about a home on wheels.  And that's what makes snowbirding so great for those who can.

   Oh that snow looks so wonderful........We have nothing
 on the ground and we'll be at - temps by Sunday. (bad for winter wheat)


  Bob are you going to put jewelery on the steers also? Nothing feels wierder than
 to have the front slide out Sad...... but I haven't heard of anybody doing that......

  Hope Jorgito is doing better with snow like that you could loose him in a snow bank on your walks.
