"Beast from the East" is dead

Finally figured out what was wrong with the snowblower. Crack in primer line feeding the primer bulb and the discharge line was frozen. Got it running and made quick work of my drive, sidewalk and couldn't resist seeing if I could get out. Rhino didn't let me down.

Critter,
With what you guys out there are going through this last little while, I will quit my complaining about the weather and the snow we are gettting. We are do for another -40 stretch right away, but no where near the snow you guys out East are getting. you all have my sympathies. I love the snow, but that is rediculous....
Doug

Hey Critter,
Are you wearing one of those snazzy tropical shirts under that red coat? It may not keep you warm, but it will keep you thinking warm until.......

Hey Critter and everybody,
My, wasnt that fun?..we got18 inches here too. If it didn't equate into so much work dealing with it ,(300' driveway plus two decks)it's actually quite beautiful,, looking out the window to a pretty woodland setting.. seeing the new blanket of deep snow..all the old tracks and footprints erased now.. like someone just shook a giant etch-a-sketch and wants to start over..huge green hemlocks with gobs of white snow on drooping branches..a cute brown cottontail peering out from under the rosebush..a couple deer munching on expensive perrenials out across the pond...(@#$@!).. crimson red cardinals and riotous blue bluejays taking turns at the feeder for a touch of color ...why, it kinda looks like a Christmas carrrdddd..(voice trailing off.....
Doodad snaps out of it....Yuckkkkkkkkkkk!! ..I am SICK of winter!!! Chrismas is over with dang it!...I wanna see sand!,not snow...warm Carribbean water!, not a frozen white pond..clear azure blue skies, not noisey birds..and bikini bunnies! not stupid rabbits!!!... I gotta get outta here...I'm goin crazy ,,crazy I tell ya!!! 4 more weeks..4 more weeks........ ;-)

Doodad, You are too funny :lol:! Your post brings back many memories of the 8 years we lived in Upstate NY. Thanks for reminding me why we migrated further South :P ! It actually reached 50 degrees here today....time to break out the shorts and t-shirts 8) !

Don't trash Dear Doodad: he'll go off in a sulk again. Besides, why hasn't anybody fixed him up with a good avatar yet?

By the way, we are now over the freezing point in Ottawa: feels like spring! And we didn't get your snowstorm, so no more cracks about mean Canadian weather systems, eh? :wink:

I do wish I had had 2 weeks in Playa on the cheap instead of one expensive---but really very fine --- AI week in the Dominican Repulic. And for sure I wish it wasn't a month ago that I came back!!!
:roll:

Ah, maybe I'll get there later! At least I have my virtual visits with you folks.

Doodad,
Ok, maybe a bit interested to see if you are from this planet or not... :lol:
I am not sure anyplace is ready for two of us like that at the same time....Probably a good thing we are separating our trips.. :wink: Heck, I am still getting emails from my Cuba trip a few weeks ago...Hopefully they will let me back again... :lol:

Hey Doodad, I think you and I should both plan our next trips for when Dougie is in Playa :lol:!

As for Jackflash's comment, we've only been in NC 4 years and according to the locals here I don't qualify as a "damn yankee" yet. I think they're still hoping we'll move back North. But hell no, we won't go! And besides, I've been called worse :wink:.
