Just keep hydrated and take frequent breaks, no matter how fast you want to get done. People have heart attacks shoveling snow because they don't take it easy.

Is that real? How do the trees grow on top of the snow? Or, nah, can't be that high?

What the hell?

Lol

I don't know what you guys are complaining about. Just go out and buy a Yooper Scooper, they work great.

I lived in the LP for a while. It was a little worse there but not as bad as you guys get in the UP. I saw pics of people using upper windows to get out.

STUNNED over those photos. So happy to see them, without having to personally experience it.
I would be so paranoid about avalanche!

Thank you. I thought of it while trudging across the yard to do something earlier. I thought of the song I posted and it clicked.

Last I heard, we might get up to ten inches. Parking ban in effect. They are usually good about plowing the roads around here. Stay warm Skid!

I stayed home all day today and I have no plans for tomorrow. I have plenty of food and am warm and cozy.

Someone posted something funny on facebook...it was a picture of pieces of bread floating in a bowl of milk. I forget what the saying was, probably 'don't forget the bread and milk' or something. Seems when there is a snowstorm that's what people go for first. Hell, head for the munchies and wine or something. LOL

It sounds like you're all set.

I think it's always been that way with bread and milk. I worked at a grocery store when I was a kid and that's what we ran out of first.

That sounds like a good plan. Keep warm and stay safe. If you have to go out, watch out for those mother fornicators who can't drive.

The trees argent growing on top of the snow, the snow snowed as high as the tree tops. Yes, it is real. There are sometimes high winds in some areas that also occur in snow storms and these large areas simply get covered with 10's of feet of snow. Think of it like a sand dune and how they 'move'



this one is in japan

Looks to be Hokkaido not so unusual but out west and south snow that sticks to the ground is rare enough and that's dangerous for folks really do not know how to handle it Skid Mark is on point in this.

They're like that here, too. It's even bad where they're used to snow.

We have parking bans that go from November to the end of April so they can plow at night..

Just think of all those humongous ripped muscles you're going to develop after doing this all day:







But that's not so bad...

My hubby leaves Feb 1st for the northern tip of Baffin Island in the Arctic Circle to work... where they only have 2 hours of daylight right now.

-40 celsius temps with winds gusting at 50kmh on a daily basis.


I'll take a couple feet of snow on my driveway over that crap any day !
