Went to a military vehicle get together over the weekend, thought some of you that are tired of looking at the white stuff would like to see what we have to put up with down here for the winter.

Being a SoCal baby, having lived there till about 23, I'm not so sure about those views. I like smog - I don't trust air I can't see. grin

There's no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothing so get yourself a sexy parka and live a little.

Right now I'm looking out the big window at Lake Erie, which is frozen over out to a distance of about 7 miles. It looks a bit like the surface of the moon.

Yeah, it's cold and snowy and there's all the struggling with heavy clothes and boots every time you want to take the dog for a walk or evn get the mail, but it's still beautiful.

It makes warm weather all that more enjoyable, too, because we know it won't last!

I can’t post those pictures, will have to send those in a pm. wink

It was not a normal show where you walk by and look at how nice and clean all of the vehicles are. These folks take the toys into the woods (cow pasture actually) , which is what made it interesting. Course i didn't see any cows while i was there so maybe that explains where the prime rib dinner came from.

Two years ago I finally bought my dream toy - a fairly large 4WD John Deere tractor with a front end loader and a rear blade. There's nothing more fun than scooping up deep snow and building HUUUGE piles of snow for my kids to play on. I'm like a kid in an oversized - somwhat cold - sandbox!!

We're expecting another 6" or so tonight. Bring it on!!!

Ah yes, sitting in 8 inches of snow, with more falling, yelping and howling on the coyote calls, watching the opposite side of the draw for any sign of movement. Those are some great memories.
