Who relaxes in a hammock in the winter? thats just crazy.
Hey, I need somewhere to sleep when the wife sends me to the doghouse... 'cause I ain't got no doghouse.

To tell the truth, it was in the mid-60's here on Sunday and I figured winter had finally ended. I pulled out the lawn furniture, cleaned up the front porch, cleaned up all the summer ***, stowed away all the winter ***/snow removal stuff, installed new seats on the golf cart, and... and... and hung the hammock!!
I was FRIGGIN' WRONG... winter ain't never gonna' end here!!

See you did it to yourself. I think all the people in the NE owe me a "thank you". If I had done that, it would be snowing here too.

We have MUD and more rain on the way. Could only mow half my yard today, too muddy. Proly have to hay that eventually..

Up in the garden trying to hoe up hills to plant tomatoes in, because planting them in the flat dirt means planting in a POND..ever try to make a mud mountain? It slides right back down! Who woulda thunk it....

My record on long winter is september to the following june, up in maine, snow that whole time around the cabin.

Yup, it's been upper 70s-80 here, grass is growin like crazy! I put off mowing the first time as long as I could, but have done it twice, and soon, a 3rd, and that's with being very near the Lake Erie snow belt. NE Iowa must be the coldest location in the nation...who knew! :msp_scared: :laugh:

Got a chill just lookin' at the pics, but that's mostly from the sunburn I got roofing today.
I wish you warmer weather soon my friend.

I thought for sure when I clicked on this thread there were going to be pics of your kid ripping around on his new quad doing doughnuts and such. Still looks like he's enjoying himself though. Wish I could say the same for you! :laugh:

Ain't that the truth!!
I woke up hoping yesterday was just a bad dream... silly me, IT'S STILL FIGGIN' SNOWING!!!
We've got over 11 inches on the ground and looks like plenty more coming!!!
At the least another 3-6 by noon, likely more... then sleet and freezing rain on top of that.
I'm probably gonna' drag out the generator and test start it before I head into work... this crap could get right nasty with the wind "they" say we're gonna' get.
Screw it! Who cares about summer anyway?? I don't need a garden this year, and I hate cuttin' grass, and I have plenty of firewood... I'm going Christmas shoppin' 'cause it looks like the holidays are just around the corner.

So, for all you sun-burnt snobs, here's what "The Land Where Winter Never Ends" looks like this morning...
