Anyway.. take a driving lesson or two... and he may change his mind!!

Hi All,

Hey Full Moon Over Salem, Life is to short I retired this past Nov. Wife said she was not ready to drop everything and go away for the winter! I left for Fl Jan. 2 and will get back to NJ sometime in May!! She flew down for a two week vacation, and I think she is going to meet me in the outer banks in April! I know this might not work for everyone, but it is for us so far ! hope this helps some!!

Same problem here in Minnesota, having a real winter for the first time in many years. Have not been able to take coach out for a thirty to forty mile run all winter as I always like to do often as possible during layup. Could do nothing more this year than watch the snow pile up on it. Forcast below zero next two nights. How will I ever make it another month?

I know how everyone feels being snowed in. We are in Maine, and even for this state it has been one huge winter. I heard on the news the other night that Portland got around 90 inches or better. Maybe we'll get out around June, if we're lucky.

We're bracing for 6-10 inches to hit this weekend here in central OH. Estimating over a foot of snow up in Warpath's neck of the woods.

Seems like winter just doesn't want to give up yet..even though the Equinox is less than 2 weeks away. Will spring EVER come?

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Even here in Florida it has been a bit rough. We have had to break out our winter sweaters several times and even on at least 6 occasions had to put on a jacket in the mornings before it warmed up. It is starting to warm up this week and my AC even starting cycling a few times yesterday after being off for a few weeks due to bitter cold temps in the mid 70's and high 60's.

Kidding aside the winter doldrums are not fun and we are also in keen anticipation of Spring when everything will be in full bloom and the Snow Birds won't be taking up all the roadways blocking things off while people are trying to get to and from work and campsites will become more readily available.

March 7 in Amesbury and a lot of rain before the ground has had a chance to thaw very well can be devistating to the apple and pear trees up there when the water gets past the frost and brings that cold on down to the roots. Hope it dosn't get too bad with the rain or we will have along with the flooded basements a bad apple and pear crop.

Well, the snow finally stopped at just over 20 inches. Buckeye Chuck said 6 more weeks of winter last Feb 2, so this better be Old Man Winter's last hurrah.

In case any snowbirds miss the joys of winter.

If it isn't the roof of the MH, then it's the roof of the house. Had to do this before the rains came and added more weight.


I'm getting too old for this!!!

Time to run some heating pipes underneath your underlayment and a boiler in the basement. Then you can heat your roof to reduce snow build up.

This is still camping season for me, just haven't had time, been putting my money towards truck upgrades, like air bags, new brakes, etc...

I would consider a icebelt too if I went this route as the fast thaw when you turned the heat on could cause things to backup under your bottom couses of roofing. With salt box overhangs the quick thaw would probably not end up in the soffits but in the ceilings and side walls.

Bob's already got the lower section (breezeway to the garage?) belted but I can't tell about the main roof from the photo.

The idea I was speaking of was something someone made, using cast iron pipe suspended inside the attic about an inch or two away from the plywood underlayment. The worked much like a radiator and warmed the roofing from the underside. The idea was to keep the roof warm enough with the snow started to accumulate to keep it from getting too deep to cause major run off problems.
