    17" and counting...

    Whew! I just finished shoveling! I don't know how the juniper bushes by the front walk are going to turn out - they're pretty smooched right now. Got most of the heavy snow out of the pine trees. The canopy at the gas station down the street collapsed, I bet there is going to be a lot of damage around town. 2nd big snow in 1˝ weeks!
    I bet Jesse Cloud up in Placitas is buried!

    Wow!
    Played croquet the other day. The ground here in Wisconsin is firm but not frozen.
    Best wishes... take care of your back.

    Yea Bruce we only got the edge of that storm, but my BIL in Tucson said it rained pretty seriously down there. I guess you got the center of that thing.

    Here are a couple shots my sister in the Northeast Heights of Albuquerque (Morris and Menaul area) sent me today:

    Definitely not the usual dusting they get. I'm bummed that I'm not there. Most years I would be there for the holidays, but parental health issues here in SoCal are keeping LOML and me here this year.

    Stay warm Bruce, Jesse, and John (Downey)...

    I miss the snow, really I do

    My kids are in Canada right now, they have over 20" on the ground and it is -15C there, and they are loving it, they got their first pair of ice skates last night!

    BTW Vaughn, what kind of dog is that that can clear the snow, got to be a popular breed in some parts

    Cheer!

    Only 7 more hours of work to go, it pure insanity right now, busy busy busy!

    Wow. We should have snow by this time of year but at 6:00 it was 43°F and it looks like it rained all night. It was foggy all day yesterday.

    Actually, if we don't get snow att all this year I won't mind. Hope you folks who aren't used to the huge piles of snow get along alright.

    I wonder if my coffee is ready.

    Happy New Year!

    Hey Bruce. You bet I'm buried! Probably gonna be tomorrow before I can get out. We got 24 inches and my driveway is a dirt road up a steep hill.
    At least I'm getting plenty of shop time!

    For those of you who have never been to NM in the winter. A couple of inches is a big storm here and it usually melts before the day is over. Here's a pic of the desert from my back porch.
