    Well, old man winter is throwing another one at us. Forecasts have been all over the place for my area. Last night before I went to bed they were saying 1-3 total accum. Now they have bumped it to a possible 1-3 today, 5-9 tonight, 3-7 tomorrow. That's at least 9, so we will see what it brings us. Just as I was getting used to this warm weather and mud. I actually got to take off my long underwear Friday. Anyone think we are going to get buried?

    In the mountains of western Maine, we are due for another 8"-14" by tomorrow afternoon. We received 40" of snow between Feb 18-23 over two different storms. I had to bring in a truck with a wing plow to push back the banks on the two mile road I plow. The banks were near five feet in areas where it was drifting. He got stuck twice and we needed to bring in a large front loader and a skidder with full chains to pull him out of the ditches. That was his own fault because I had offered to ride shotgun to show him the ditches but he told me he could do it himself.

    It took me a full five days to clear the snow off of the roofs from the last two storms. I am getting quite the exercise program keeping snow off of 12 medium to large size buildings.
