Plenty 'ole Plowing

video

New England was hit again, we had another snow storm that lasted all night and all day. Snow is really pretty when it's the first of the season but after that.....it becomes a waiting game with Spring. This snow is really wet and heavy, reminiscence of warmer temperates coming.

My area got about 8 inches, a far cry from the foot the weathermen were predicting. Plowing, plowing, and more plowing.....get a load of my "farm truck", it's a 1981 which makes it 28 years old! We just had it tuned up for the first time in 10 years, she starts and runs better than most. Check out how it slips on the ice when the breaks are applied. This faithful Ford takes a lot when the winter months arrive, thank goodness we have it!

This is funny, when I hear plowing I think of the fields, not snow. Can you tell I'm southernized?

Tina, that is funny....

I cannot believe there is still snow falling in our country! We did get 32 degree temps last night but not a hard freeze so all of our early spring poppers are still doing fine.

This is something we keep telling ourselves these lately: They dont make things like they use to! That truck proves the point! Still going strong after all these years. You are indeed lucky to have it!

Ugh! My least favorite kind of snow. It clogs up the snowblower so much that I have to hand shovel it. That's a whole lot of work when your driveway is as long as mine. Here's hoping spring arrives earlier than it did last year!

Funny and to think the truck is the same age as the twins!! We have less snow than we began with as it turned to rain as it was 40 degrees all night.

I love snow pictures, I really miss it here in Kaohsiung.

That truck is like a Timex {takes a licking & keeps on ticking}. They sure don't make them like they use to that is for sure.
Love the pix of the snow.
