F**k Winter

Recommended Posts

Here's what we were dealing with around here a couple weeks ago.

This week we finally got some actual snow. Only about 1/4" of ice this time as opposed to the solid inch plus we had last time.

Holy crap Sky, that's some serious ice right there !!!

Yep, and that's just a small bush in our front yard. Trees were completely encapsulated as well.

And, when you have heavy ice like that, it snaps power lines, knocks down trees, etc. Seriously, when it's all over the damage is about equivalent to a tornado going through.

For example:

It's the worst one we've had since 94, which was actually many times worse.

Looks like the snow pretty much missed Cincinnati from what I saw coming back this morning.
What ??  A couple of inches maybe ??  Hardly the white death I heard was coming over the news.

When I was in the Bahamas, I was sitting on a beach with clear blue water and 80 degree temps.
Someone tell me why the hell I live in Cincinnati again ??

Well 3 feet here all roads closed, and I have no snowblower, this sucks! 

My wife has been stuck at work since Friday evening, won't be able to come home till Sunday evening, and I'm stuck with two sick kids.

Oh the life of Winter, or I should say one huge storm

Thanks Hoosier. 

Well we set a record here with over 30 inches of snow in one falling. What a mess and it's still snowing with winds in the 20 mph range.

I guess Winter is coming, all here at one shot lol.

Thanks COB

So an hour and half later I'm halfway down my drive way and got my sidewalk done. Yup I'm done for the night tomorrow is another day lol. I think it's time to invest in a snowblower.

Hope things are going a little better for you and yours today Volcom !!!

The minute you buy a snowblower, you won't see snow the rest of the winter.

Never fails.

Thanks Army

Well took the kids outside to shovel today, in hopes that one of my neighbors sees me struggling, and will lend a hand lol.

My neighbor lended me his snowblower, and was able to get everything cleaned up. 

What a mess had about 33 inches of snow, with 4 ft snow drifts in some areas. My furnace kept shutting off because the snow was getting that high it kept covering the vents (Remember that in your guys next big storm). 

Biggest storm I've ever been through, I'll be happy if its the only one of the year, but it's not even February yet. At least my wife can finally come home tonight lol.

Finally remembered it's winter here in Chicagoland. My part of northern IN is getting 6-11 inches today. Started at 7:30 this morning and boy won't my drive home this evening be fun!

Yup screw winter! 

Arizona kicked winter to the curb weeks ago, ironically right after a snow storm.
