    Yup, Elliiot Lake was like that, I remember the day the garbage truck went back to Blind River because they couldn't get up the hills into Elliot Lake so we had to put the bins in the shed away from the ravens, lucky the bears were asleep eh.

    Woke up to a new present one morning, somone up there wanted me to have a heart attack I reckon.

    You have to move your houses a little farther apart so you have room to toss it.

    We are supposed to get 7-14" in the next couple days, will see.
    Last good snow was in December. I drove home to this, snow plow just pushed everything in my driveway, you can see where the snow sticks are.

    Had to switch to 4Lo and locked the rear diff. It worked.

    That is one vood thing about where I live. Sure, we get snow. Sometimes a lot of it. But it only stays around for a few days and its gone. The sun is powerful at this altitude I was told. Plus we get warm days to help knock it down. They are saying below 0 in a couple days and with wind it gets really ugly quick.

    Well, I'm at 5600 feet and if you are south facing the snow melts fast. If you are north facing it can stick around for a week or more even though the temp is pushing 60 today.

    Default I Like to Watch

    I haven't lived in Fairbanks since late-May 2012, but I try to "keep my hand in the game" by watching the UAF Geophysics Institute "Climate Cam" (streaming @60fps 24/7). Last night, I spent half-an-hour watching a guy in a Bobcat plow/blow snow from the parking lot across the street. "Cheap thrills"

    I'd give it all up, for just a little more.

    Were having a tropical heat wave, at the moment.

    Lows in the 40s thru last night, highs expected near 60., with rain on Wednesday.

    Seasons are about to change over, here. So think positive men....I'm sending it your way.

    If it's any consolation, February 2015 in the Boston, Massachusetts, metropolitan area was terrible regarding snowfall. Around 8-9 feet of standing accumulation at one point. It was like living in the trenches. At one point, there was nowhere to put the shoveled snow. I bought a wheelbarrow and started hauling it away to the nearest street corner, around 300 feet away from my doorstep. Thankfully, we've had less snowfall since then.
