No more Snow Please

Had a fun weekend getting the snow off the roof of our trailer on our vacation property around Gaylord Mi. The guy that normally plows our driveway had a transmission failure this week so we had to walk in about 2 feet of snow to get to our trailer. It took about 2 hours to get most of the snow off. Started with the snow rake but ended up getting a ladder an plastic shovel. The average snowfall up here for this time of year is normally around 80 inches but this year so far it is 135 inches. Crazy weather

I store mine in NE.Ohio...have not had to shovel it's roof off yet. We have had more cold weather than snow. About average snow amount...but just plain cold since early Nov.

Counting down the days till the new camping season...Like to get out about April 10th or later...

Send the snow this direction, we could use it! The temps got up into the low 50's this last week and most of the snow here is gone or is now ice. Before the warm weather set in, I had about 20" of snow on the roof of my shop. Today it is clear of snow and these temps are supposed to hang on for several more days. so much for playing in the snow(snow machine riding)!
Or better yet, send the snow to California, they really need it!

Man, that really sucks...

Will gladly trade snow for a few days in exchange for our rain. Only for a few days though.

We rarely get snow anymore 'cuz of all that global warming stuff.

Not to worry, according to the calendar, camping season isn't too far off now.

Thanks, that is our back yard in Port Charlotte, Florida. We had a Tiki hut built two years ago and last summer completed the project with pavers and hook ups for the new Phaeton.
We spend a lot of time out back at our little "resort"
If you would like other pictures feel free to email me.

The snow is making us nervous. We're leaving for Florida (hopefully) on Sunday. Our motor home is in snow about 6 inches deep. Can't take much more without hiring a snow plow to get us on the road.

We're in central Indiana.

Haha. We left Florida this morning and spending the night just north of Chattanooga. We're headed up near Green Bay for the next four months. My wife says snowbirds head south for the winter and dodo birds head north.

We're going for work though...

We have been in Indiana, PA for about a week and have about 6" of snow outside. Our daughter, SIL and two granddaughters moved up here last week from Oklahoma so we accompanied them up here. Headed back towards Texas tomorrow before more snow and the negative temps arrive Tuesday night.

Here in SW MN we have not had that much snow for our area at this time of year. But, we have been unusually COLD. And, there is more of it on the way. My friends have been having trouble with there pipes freezing in there stick and brick house that they are living in. You have to keep the water running slowly all the time to keep it from freezing.
