I'm tired of it too, although we've had Temps here today hitting almost 50 degrees, the Snow is melting (although there is a lot of it to melt)-could Spring be on the horizon?

Looks like we don't have to worry about Global Warming though:

I just went out and played in the street on the wet snow - hard to do circles in a 7400# p/u truck until I shut the 4WD off. Then - whoopee

If you have this crud in Ohio tonight we'll have it tomorrow

I'm sick of the Western NY tease. One day 50's then 17 f. What the hell. On top of that I'm taking an auto body class once a week and I have to trailer my car 3 miles to. Bad weather, rain or snow makes no class time on my car. Keeps changing forecast from 10% show to 90%...

At least I was able to do some time with the torpedo heater, but there where a couple times where I had to wait for the bondo to heat up to start curing.. I hate NY winter.

Winter has been weird here. Temps have bounced all over the place, but for most of winter it has been warm enough (high 30s to 40s F) that I've worked outside most days.

Been building a house for my son since last June. Now that project is nearly done and I want to get back to working in my garage, the weather's gone miserable. Cold and damp, followed by icy and windy, followed by a brief sighting of some big light in the sky, followed by rain, then the cycle repeats. Even the Canadian geese have been confused by it. I want out!

Few more inches of snow last night, allowing Green Bay to beat its old snow record for February. We've had somewhere between 70 and 80 inches of snow so far this winter, and could still have 2 more months yet to get through. Last week the plow had the snow up over my mailbox. A lot of towns were running out of salt and only salting the most needed areas. People were yelling for the city to get out and knock down the snow bank hieght because you couldn't see if anything was coming or you would run someone over. The fire department workers were doing there best to uncover fire hydrants, because the city wasn't keeping up with that either. When it hasn't been snowing, its usually been bitterly cold. I've sure had enough, Spring can't come soon enough, could be june before all the snow melts, lol.

Winter started late here but for sure caught up. We are over 6" above normal for snow for the winter and several degrees below average - like 6-7. There is a forecast for tonight, depending on what channel you are watching, for another 3 to 10 inches - I live right where the Hudson and Mohawk (Erie Canal) Rivers meet so the weather folks are seldom right. And it's -4* here but a bit further North at Saranac Lake, a 'balmy' -30*. And I wonder why I'm not spending time in my <20* garage finishing the cut and buff on my car. At least the chassis is in the basement garage so that it is 99% done, now just waiting the body.

Dang, I want to mate them up so I can finish putting it together
