    Hey buddy, thanks for keeping the snow on your side of the fence. I have had all of that white crap I can stand for this year.

    We're desprate for rain up here. Had very little snowfall this year, and the stuff we did get was the dry powdorey stuff. Been in a drought for a few years now.

    Don't worry. Where I'm at, 15miles east of where you're moving to, we had barely enough to cover the ground this morning and it's all gone now. Not snowing or anything.

    Yea, you can have it. It was 85 and sunny at home today. The water's almost warm enough to go surfing without a wetsuit too, we should be outta neoprene in a few weeks. :thumb:

    Got about 6" or so down here in Colorado Springs, but it's sunny out now and it will probably be al melted by the end of the day.

    You can keep it!!

    I'm glad all our snow finally melted!--we got 9 feet this winter,the #4 top amount EVER recorded here(and the other 3 that beat this winter have been all in the past 25 years or so)..

    It was beautiful yesterday,65 degrees! :laugh: --today its back in the 40's though,and wont get much warmer all week,but at least no snow,only a shower or two tomorrow and wednesday...I can live with that!--I have a billion things to do out in the yard the next few weeks--winter trashed the place,got trees to cut down,fix the damage to the lawn from the plow,etc...like I have nothing better to do... :frown1:

    HIJACK! You should read Michael Crichton's "State of Fear". Very enlightening about the "global warming" scam

    Okay HIJACK over Jiminy!

    i like some of MC's stuff so I'll prolly read it eventually. I dont need another source to convince me that its all BS though. ;) The most telling thing of all are these two facts. One, in the 70s the same people said man was brining on an ice age, aka global cooling. Second, because the data is starting to show things swining in the other direction, the left wing hippy enviro nuts have already started using the phrase "climate change" instead of global warming. With the new phraseology, no matter what the annual temperatures are (up or down relative the the previous year, historical data et all) they can still continue their assault against our way of life. convenient!

    In the 70's here in MS. I love to visit places that get snow, but I'm sure glad we don't get it (not much anyway) around here.

    WooHoo! It missed us over here, just dropped a little rain and went straight on over to you guys. On the flip side I got no slack from the wifey on my weekend "honey-do's" due to bad weather. :blush:

    We got the big melt today.

    Had so much of it that the basement started flooding through the window well frame. Ground is saturated.

    Had to rig up a gutter drain extension but not before it got to Gerri's shoe collection.

    whups.
