    A lot of hard work going on over there. Hope you didn't lose much.
    Speaking of snow, I remember plowing a late snow maybe six years back, in D.P., and the water was shooting out of the manholes on most of the streets within a 1/2 block of the river, and we were plowing the slush out to the street, which was lightly flooded. Almost to where a sidewalk would be. Plowing snow and delivering trash pumps and gas. The rain can stop now, the grass is doing fine.:rolleyes:

    I am about tired of the rain in the Ohio valley!
    I have 8.5 acres of land in a National Park river valley. I have tried to mow every week. It seems to grow 8 inches a week. I no longer get 1/2 of it done and it rains again for two days. Then it gets cold enough for snow for two nights, what's next? Locust? Plague? The dead rise?
