The farmers I have spoken to are quite depressed about it. Planting will be delayed several weeks apparently.

For sure, even if it all melts by the end of the month it will be a long while before they can get in the field to plant.

It was just too good of a year last year. We got spoiled.

We did indeed.

It's probably Soucherays fault.

I'm considering a boycott on shoveling.

They do the walkway and the steps and that's about the extent their muscles can handle. Couple years and I'll be able to get a little more labor out of 'em.

When you find a farmer that says something good about the weather you are talking to an impostor.

I am thinking that I am just going to pick a weekend and buy an Amtrak ticket to go get my BMW from Wisconsin. When I bought it, I was half thinking that next weekend would probably be a good weekend to bring it home.

Sigh.

I went for a ride on Saturday! I took the DRZ out of the basement, got it stuck in the back yard, got the shovel out of the garage, dug a path up the side hill and on to the driveway. Rode around the neighborhood, dropped it on the icy road, went back home. It was way too cold, my shifter needs to be moved down a bit, and ice is slippery!
