We Got Snow!

We got around 8.5 inches of snow yesterday afternoon/evening.

It was the really wet & heavy stuff so it was really fun taking care of it this morning. Don’t believe in a gas powered snow blower since the upkeep is such a pain, so we have a battery operated one. Wait, we have a battery powered one to help the environment.

Got through around 90% of the driveway/street before the battery died. Then had to shovel. No big deal, just wanted you to know.

Sad thing is that we had an ice storm a few weeks ago and it just tore apart our pine tree in the backyard. Have a couple piles of branches and limbs that I really can’t do anything with since yard waste pickup doesn’t begin until April. So, there they sit.

Of course this heavy wet snow doesn’t seem to be doing us any favors. There’s a couple branches touching the ground, will just have to wait until the snow on them melts to see if they spring back to their former glory. If not, more towards the piles.

Picked up a small Ryobi chainsaw last week since it’s, um, good for the environment. Haven’t had a chance to run around with it yet, but hopefully soon. I want me to do some cuttin’!

And Bob bitches about driving in six inches of snow. How about 8.5 inches? Huh? How about that, Bob?

The idea of building a website with Bob came from Stephen in the days of message boards and chat rooms. We settled on the name TheWeirdcrap.com and the rest is history. Retired since he hit the ripe age of 25, he spends most his time doing odd-jobs around the house and digging thru trash bins for "stuff that's still good." Stephen has contributed several short stories and hosted the "Lunatic Ravings" column since the beginning (1999). The idea of writing weekly columns came from Stephen before blogs or blog sites ever existed. So, I guess that makes him THE FIRST BLOGGER IN THE WORLD!!!
