Bye Bye Winter 2012 - 2013
Original Message   Mar 30, 2013 9:08 am
Judging by the long term forecasts, it looks safe to say goodbye to old man winter around these parts.

Looking forward to warmer weather and no more snow.  I already got the snowblowers summerized.

Well....we had a blizzard two days ago.  Just a small one but I did have to cut thru a five foot drift across my driveway but the rest wasnt too bad.  Today, however, it is snowing again, but fortunattely no wind to speak of.  So...I'lll have to blow snow again tomorrow.  I cant wait till this is over and then ill just have to deal with....freezing rain.  When spring comes.  If it ever does.

Your gift from Canada is on its way to MN.  We are expecting rain/snow this week.

Just keep that stuff up there.  I don't want any more snow!  Getting the bicycles ready for the summer.

A funny guy!  My wife used HS520 for the first time last Thursday and she loved it.  We are getting some more this Thur and hopefully it will be mostly rain.  Just bought an Electra Cruiser bike for my wife and hopefully she likes the simplicity. This snow thing is not over for people in ND and Canada.  I would be biking to work by now but very late this year.

Dr_Woof, looks like winter isn't done yet in Saskatchewan. Pictures this morning on the weather channel showing a lot of snow on the ground & still snowing?

Just dusted a little snow - nothin serious.  But I still got bout 10 FEET over my garden and six around the house.  Looks like it'll start melting some today.

It aint over till the fat lady sings!  And I aint heard no music yet - but.....we did have a(nother) blizzard last nite.  Lotsa wet heavy snow underlain by MUD.  I think I blew as much mud as snow!  Closed all the highways in and out of Regina - semis jacknifed all over.

Still aint over!  Is Saskatchewan the only place in the world where you can stand with one leg up to the knee in snow, the other leg up to the knee in mud, and have......dust blow in your eyes?

That's tough country up there.

The weather this year has been crazy.  In this area, we got tornadoes, flooding, thunderstorms, high winds, hail.  It makes for an interesting spring season so far.
