Winters End

I think winter storms are pretty much played out in my area. I have mixed feelings about that. Anyway just wanted to tell you guys thanks for all the assistance and I'll be talking with you all again next season. I enjoyed all our talks. Have a great summer.

Hey Doc
You may not be done yet! It's been the coldest winter in 20 years in SE Mass. I'd say another one or two storms at least left. MH

nah, I think we're done..
It's the middle of March, two weeks until April,
and the 10-day forecast shows mostly daytime temps above freezing.

yes, we do get snow in April, its not rare..but if we do, it's almost always a light coating of wet slushy snow that melts away within 24 hours..dont need to break out the snowblower..I predict we are done (in the North-East) with "snow-blowable" snow for the season..but I will make of point of posting in this thread if I am wrong!

Yeah, I'm starting to wonder if the fun is over We were supposed to have a nice storm last week but we ended up with mostly rain and a bit of icing.

We've had some serious melting over the past few days. Snow depth in my backyard has gone from about 14" to 4" since a week ago. I've left the big machine in the garage with hopes that we might see some more action, but I'm growing skeptical along with the rest of you

I've got to drain the oil in both machines and get some fresh 5W30 in there. I think the tanks are completely topped off.

Garage
I just want the ground to thaw and dry out. Soooooo much mud and I hate to even let the dog out to pee.

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
