Okay... snowed AGAIN last night and apparantly its supposed to snow more today. We have about 2' ('=feet) now.... And I don't have a snow shovel or chains. Good thing I have vacation most of this week...

Only one problem. I'm almost out of beer!!!

We've been snowed in since Wednesday the 17th. On the upside I have an almost full keg, and I've been baking like it's going out of style. On the downside, I'm going a little crazy stuck at home and there's no way the corvette's making it out of here.

WTF? You shoot guns, but you don't have a big jacked up diesel powered 4 wheel drive? Seriously, it might be a bit stereotypical, but I'd fully expect to see you behind the wheel of an F-250 Dually, or an big old Bronco or Scout II.

Still snowing this morning. Now I am not sure if we will be able to get up to WA for Christmas with the family...

took some pictures of the cold outside

I have never seen this much snow in the Pac NW my whole life (minus of course the mountains). My grandmother said she hasn't seen this much snow since the 50's.

Drank our last bottle of wine last night and now all I have is special bottles that I really don't wanna open (Abyss, Dissident, double dead guy, double bastard, etc...). I need to get out to the LHBS soon so I can get another batch going.

AND I just spent 20 minutes shoveling and I don't think I'm one bit closer to getting my Corolla out of the driveway....

Well, I *had* good transportation, until this morning when I got home from work. I got stuck in a rut trying to park, (plus had to work last night because SOME people couldn't make it in) and ended up getting the chain jammed into the brakes. And it broke. No, the chain did, not the brakes. Ever try taking a tire off in the snow? Yea it bites. Then a hike down to BiMart for them to be OUT of the chain size I need.

Glad work hasn't called yet, I won't be going in.

Eh work called last night and said they would be open today. It was hell driving to work it took me an hour longer than it usually does, the worst part is I got stuck a block from work and had to have a coworker push me out. I don't have anything to do so I guess I'll just be surfin HBT. Take a look at what I did yesterday though in my back yard.

I remember it getting nasty up there as a child.
It snowed on the last three visits home -

It's just rainy and cold as hell here in SF bay area lately.

It's 40 degrees outside yet it's not melting. Hopefully rain will take care of that. I'm tired of shoveling.

Still more snow. Ice, snow, ice, snow, ice & snow. Three crunchy layers. Tried to get the 4x4 out of the garage yesterday, but the snow is damp and about 5" over the bed, so it's like backing into a wall. The pack isn't strong enough to get on top. 3100 feet to the road.

Walking is 'interesting'. Hoist yourself up on the top ice layer, put some weight on it and Crunch, Crunch, Crunch! Not as bad as ChiTown, but no one has snow throwers around here. (Not that 99% of snow throwers can handle what's outside.) Boss Bailey has an odd bunch of cuts from the ice. He has decided to stay close to the house for the duration.
