    Wouldn't say snowless,but yesterday it was the warmest in 2 weeks . Scraped my driveway down that had 4 inches of ice, got the truck washed scraped down a couple of lots so the sun would dry them up.

    The last 2 winters I had big projects (added a 2nd story & rehabed the kitchen & living room) going on at my house but this winter has been time to finish all the little things that you learn to live with at the end of a project.

    Washed everything down, took on a salt delivery, setup some deliveries, and going to pick up my new truck tomorrow. Got caught up with invoices and paperwork. A Break is good every once and a while.
