Trust me, it can't look like Maine down there. My road has not showed the hot top since November. The wheel ruts in the ice got so bad last week that they had to bring graders in with carbide inserts to scrape the ice so it was at least smooth. The guard rails are gone...the snowbanks are well over those, and the mailboxes to boot.
The Maine DOT says they are out of salt. They said we will be alright if we can go two weeks without any storms...that was yesterday. Today its snowing again with another storm predicted for Friday. I have not seen this much snow in a long time. As is, we are close to several snowfall records for the year. The Maine DOT even said that they had more storms this year...so far...then the last three years combined!
We went out riding on Sunday and all we did was get stuck and pull out sleds. After the third time of getting my sled out of a snowbank, I was ready to head home.
Of course we are used to this stuff. Down there Frank you must be almost dying. I assume you guys have backup heat (wood stoves) generators, snowplows on your pickups, snowmobiles and snowshoes right?
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
