And we got this much more snow last night :)

 

Don has to come over with his frontend loader to move the snow back this week... there’s no more room to push back it with the plough on his truck!!

....peter:): Je ne connais pas beaucoup de chansons folkloriques françaises Maria-Line ... mais je me souviens de celle-ci, je l'adore... ce sera seulement -7*C ici cet après-midismile Bisous et bonne joourné toute en douceur....peter/pierresmile

Winter is returning!
....peter:): it hasn't left yet Ray... i will let you know when it does....petersmile
We had the same problem in our cul de sac... Much of the snow got pushed into our dive way. Frank shoveled a lot of it out... and we would just keep driving over the edge until we were able to level it out
....peter:): they are supposed to tile the snow in the middle of the cul de sac Elizabeth...
get on the city's and straiten them out... we never go up or down our 50 foot driveway in the same tire tracks so you you've got it right...
packed snow works well....petersmile

I always wondered if the locals do snow clearance as a self help task or do they get paid somehow by the local town councils, whatever?
....peter:): the town only takes care of the roads Alan... i pay Don with his truck and plow $35 every time that he has to clear our driveway for the past ten years... most of the time he can push in down to the back next to the sunroom...
now it has backed up that there id no more room...
tomorrow he will come in with his front end loader and push it all back... for about $45...
all in all it's a bargain because he charges other people much more... but this year he has been here about 20 times... sot that's $600:50 plus the extra charge for the front loader...

we have had years when he has only had to come 15 times but we got a hell of a lot of snow this year....

global warming!!!!

We got a couple of cm over night too. Winter has returned after a lovely break.
....peter:): winter never left here yet Mary... but we will have a few days of +7*c this week... perhaps we will be on the good side of life... otherwise we will just enjoy what we have....petersmile
It may look pretty when freshly fallen but I'll bet anything most of us Brits don't envy you and all our other Canadian friends one bit having this.
....peter:): i agree Brian... most of you Brits couldn't put up with our winters... that is unless they come and spend the winter with us... and see that we still live through it all....petersmile

That is a lot of the white stuff. We barely had a winter this year. It was in the 70s a week ago. Crazy weather.
....peter:): don't make me jealous Hollie... we put up with this every year... ans wouldn't have it any other way....petersmile
Ok, you win....smile
....peter:): it's not a competition Frank... i just wish i would have to contend with the snow in Flagstaff... drop i tomorrow to see what we have to do wit all of this snowgrin
....petersmile

C'est l'hiver et c'est beau mais j'aurais du mal à  vivre dans un pays de neige, pas à  cause du froid mais à  cause de la neige que j'aime en photo mais pas pour rouler ou marcher dessus. Bisous à  vous 3
....peter:): C'est l'hiver et je sais que tu aimes regarder nos photos de la neige Marie!!
je suis d'accord qu'il faut beaucoup d'efforts pour s'habiller et marcher dans la neige ... mais c'est là que nous vivons et nous aimons ça!!
Bisous de nous 3 dans la neingesmile
