    It's friggin Seattle. It rains 90% of the time. I want to be a Seattle weatherman. Come in on January 2nd with a bunch of different shirts. Just put one on and say on and off again rain showers with temps. between 40 and 50. Then change shirts and say on and off again rain showers with temps. between 50 and 60. Change again and say snow possibility then turning to rain. Change again and say temps above 80 and how you can protect yourself and doggy from the excessive heat. It's that easy !!!

    Not the case in Spokane, they predicted sunshine through the weekend and Monday... it snowed - all three days. I guess that's "crystal sunshine".

    Being a weatherman, would be a sweet job!

    The only line of work, where you can be consistently wrong and still keep your job.

    We've gotten nearly 2 feet of snow at my house since last Friday with highs in the 20s.

    What I did for 3 hours yesterday and we got another 6 or 7" since then.

    Rained yesterday & into the night. Light snow & 30 now. I imagine it's a bit more severe up in the Seep Lake country.

    Nice snow shovel, Trapper!

    I saw my grass the other day. It's still brown. It turns brown in November and doesn't turn green until May. I like that.

    Old guys with arthritis weakened backs should only use 60" hydraulic driven shovels.;) I actually do most of the work with the rear blade.

    The crocus and daffodils are ready to bloom in our front yard. As far as they are concerned, it is now Spring in The Valley. Danged determined flowers!

    You're a prudent man, Trapper. If I still lived back there, I'd have one too!

    Living rurally, I can't imagine how I'd get things done without that tractor. I use it mostly in the non-winter months for MPB killed trees as I have a chipper that runs off the PTO, but for moving snow, it's pretty nice.

    Here's a photo I took today.

    I couldn't get my Volkswagen off my block this morning, thanks to a foot of snow. So I walked to work. What a wonderful reminder that I live 4 blocks from the amazing Clark Fork River. That beast is frozen solid, interrupted by riffles and scary holes in the ice. I will take a picture of beautiful, snowy Missoula from the California Street Footbridge tomorrow morning.

    If it's got open leads it isn't frozen solid. It might be ice covered but not frozen solid. If it was that way all the fish would die.:p

    Thankfully it was solid enough for a lost dog I saw walking on the river this morning. I whistled and he came, then the damn thing followed me to work. No collar, of course.

    While driving home from work yesterday I noticed a guy mowing his lawn!!!!

    Com'on man! Don't be mowing your lawn in February or the other spouse type units will expect the rest of us guys to start doing the same thing.

    I almost stopped and asked the guy for his man card so I could rip it up.

    Mowing your lawn in Oregon in February is a justifiable reason to lose your man card.
