    I've been thinking the same thing.

    I hope not the roof on my shop office collapsed from that snow. It didn't completely go down but it broke the gas line. My secretary was in there and said the heat was on. My brother just happened to stop by and smelled gas bad. Got her out of there and shut it off at the meter. The shut off valve broke at the furnace which is in a 8'x8' room. How it didn't blow we'll never know. Just lucky my brother stopped in when he did.

    Accuweather says temps around here the highs stay above 32 until mid-January. Lows are below 32 around mid December and aren't calling for any snow. I won't be surprised if we don't go out at all in December. I hope it isn't like last year where February we were out 4 or 5 times a week the whole month.

    We haven't had a year like this in awhile. I was also thinking we are due for a light year after the last few. Who knows. Last winter started off the same. Everyone claimed it to be over in early January when nothing was happening. It wasn't until the end of January that we actually started getting anything, and it was all over from there. It even lasted through the end of March.

    Thanking my lucky stars that I have 2 revenue streams...because I know this year is going to be a bust for weather until about the middle of February.

    I hope not, we only had 5-6' that week, that was bad enough. I'd rather not see a week like that again.

    Going to have nightmares tonight.
