    It took my son 2 hours to get from the east side of the tunnel, down the mtn. 5 miles to town. It's STILL crash and burn time.
    So much for the couple hundred dollars worth of flowers recently planted. :xmas:

    Yeah, it rained, AGAIN... I know we need it, and apperantly it's rained more the last two weeks than it usually does in a year, but this is crazy... my umbrella has broken because of being used too much... the playground area of the trailer park is now a lake, with water overflowing onto the street... I want to go ONE DAY with summer weather and no rain... we had two days earlier this week, but it even rained a little bit then...

    Rain does suck but at least you didn't have 3" of snow like me.
    I guess it's better then burning though.

    I think I'll stick to my "africa hot" climate.. at least I'm still able to get out and do stuff. Not to mention perks like bikini's etc.

    Hmm... sounds like it's time to take the kiddos back to Sea Worlds Lost Lagoon. :D

    We were blessed with some spring weather for a bit longer than normal this year.. but now I'm afraid the hot days are here, and coming even harder soon.

    Probably a re-post, but some comic relief none the less. ;)

    A Texan Moves North



    January 10



    It's 5:00PM. It's starting to snow. The first of the season and the first one we've seen in years. The wife and I took our hot buttered run and sat by the picture window watching the soft flakes drift down, clinging to the trees and covering the ground. It was so beautiful.



    January 11



    We woke to a lovely blanket of crystal white snow covering the landscape. What a fantastic sight. Every tree and shrub covered with a beautiful mantle. I shoveled snow for the first time in my life and loved it. I did both the driveway and the sidewalk. later a snow plow came along and accidentally covered up the driveway with compacted snow from the street. The driver waved and smiled. I waved back and shoveled again.



    January 12



    It snowed an additional 5 inches last night and the temp has dropped to 11 degrees. Several tree limbs have snapped in the snow. I shoeveled the drive again. Shortly afterwards the snowplow came again. Now the now is a brownish-grey.



    January 13



    It warmed enought today to cause slush which froze again when the temp dropped. Bought snow tired for both cars. Fell on my a$$ in the driveway. $145.00 to a chiropractor. Northing broken. More snow.



    January 14



    Still cold as hell. Sold the wife's car. Bought a 4x4 to get her to work. Slid into a guardrail anyways, considerable damage. Another 8 inches of snow last night. Both vehicles covered with salt and crud. More shoveling for me. The goddam snowplow came twice today.



    January 15



    It's 2 ****ing degrees outside. More ****ing snow. Not a tree on our property hasn't been damaged. Power was off most of the night. Tried to keep from freezing to death with candles and a kerosene heater, which tipped over and nearly burned the ****ing house down. Managed to put out the flames but suffered 2nd degree burns on my hands plus lost all my eyelashes and eyebrows. car slid off the road on the way to the emergency room and totalled it.



    January 16



    More mother****ing goddam white chit keeps coming down. Have to put on all the clothes we own just to get to the ****ing mailbox. If I ever catch the son-of-a-bitch who drives that ****ing snowplow, I'll chew open his chest and rip out his heart. I think he hides around the corner till I shovel. Power still off. Roof has started to cave in.



    January 17



    Six more ****ing inches of ****ing white chit and ****ing sleet and no tellin' what the **** else fell last night. I wounded the ****ing snowplow arsehole with an ice axe, but he got away. Wife left me. The car won't start. I think I'm going snowblind. I can't feel my ****ing toes. Haven't seen the sun in weeks. More white chit forecast. Wind chill is 22 below. I'm moving my a$$ back to Texas.

    Yesterday it was raining pretty good in the morning. There was thunder and lightning, and just before lunch time it started to hail. Another two hours later and we had a blue ski and a beautiful day. Kinda bizarre, I don't get it :confused: .

    Nothing but sunny and warm weather up here in my neck of the woods, but that is normal for a desert anyway.

    Wanting more storms. Everytime something comes through it either goes just north or just south of us. I love rain, and I love thunderstorms. Besides, the 90+ degree 80% humidity has been driving me nuts lately... And yes, that is alot for here.... :grin: At least at this time of year... We went from low 70's to the low 90's in about a day......

    Yeah, I guess you can only undress so far before getting arrested :D
    at least we can add clothes to stay warm but you never get to see babes
    in little clothes and shorts when it freakin cold.
    Warmed up decent today, maybe 60's and all the snow (3-4") is gone.
    It should be in the 70's or possible 80's by Friday. Freeky weather up here
    as usual.

    If your feelin hot, play this GAME , it might make you feel cool :pimp1: .
