The 4 to 8 inches of snow turned into 17 INCHES OF HEAVY WET AND VERY STICKY SNOW. It started snowing Wednesday afternoon and stopped late Friday afternoon. “Red”, my snow-blower, had trouble going thru this Friday. The snow stuck to the auger blades and it was like trying to push a rolling pin thru the snow. I quit, after fighting the machine against the snow, I was tired. Did get most of the driveway cleared.
Saturday morning, “Red” worked beautifully, spitting that snow out like a watermelon-eating champion. I think it was the slightly colder temperature making the snow much less sticky that did the trick. 9:00 am I’m done.
The sky was blue, the sun was strong and the melting had started with temperatures that soared. Felt like spring, didn’t look like it. I let the ladies and Jack out, well, I opened the run door. They didn’t exactly sprint out, more like scared chickens looking out at all that white stuff. Finally 3 of them did venture down the path. They don’t like change and they really don’t like snow. I’d like to tell them this is the last snow but mother nature has a sense of humor, so I dare not mention it.
Son, David, and three of my Grand-kids came over, so we had a snowball fight. I lost. Well, it was a tie. It was fun.
So, I’m still looking for spring, this snow may delay it a bit.
