Hi! It’s a bit west of where I am. Truly spookie. Reminds me of pictures of the Dust Bowl of the 30’s.

Thank you. We have about 4” on the driveway. I will go start shoveling in an hour or so. Thankfully I’ve already gotten 95% of the ice off the driveway before the snow. I’m going to have to wear spikies cuz the gutter area and street is ICE, ICE, ICE!!

I’ve seen pictures of those sand storms in Kuwait and Iraq...very spookie indeed. I can’t imagine the noise and trying to keep the sand outside.

I didn’t sign up because I’m working full time and have insurance.

We’ll see how I feel in a year or so.

Thank you, Dave.

Just came in from shoveling all these old legs can shovel of the driveway. Too much snow....but I did clear two cars wide.

Hope all is well with you and yours. Is it cold?
