The Driveway Saga Season 2; Episode: 11 - "One More Snow Show"

in GEMSlast year


Enough is Enough, I think

While the snowmobile riders are having a blast this year, I am pretty tired of all the snow blast we have been having this year. I got use to the small one inch or less snow falls, this year, they all fall in one or two days of the week. Saturday evening the 7th it once again started to snow, come bed time it was not much and looked like it would remain light and fluffy and easy to move about.

Sunday morning, I had 5-6 inches of wet hard to move snow on my vehicle once again, and Sundays are our run-a-round day. I'm retired, I like to relax for the first couple of hours after waking up, I have internet things to do, they are a lot easier than shoveling 6 inches of wet snow.

The only good thing about all the snow? I have something to post and talk about and to take pictures of. One of the episodes was not about snow but of thaw melt and freeze and ice rinking of the driveway, so 10 snow falls of plowable amounts this year so far. The last two season only 6 in each season. So I guess Global cyclical weather changing patterns have hit my neck of the woods. This though is the more normal snow amount of past decades, so perhaps things are just returning to normal, three years however do not a cycle make. So on with the picture show. (sorry no moving ones today)

The view from where I park:

It was a nice bright sunshiny day today, after all the overcast cloudy days a warm welcome, a shame it never really got warm though.

The heading out and secondary parking view:

I like building panoramic shots. This is four individual shots stiched together with the "Autostitch Program". They make for a nicer wide angle shot, a little distorted but still I like the pano's.

The road in and out:

This was only two shots stitched together, there really is not much to the left except another dead satellite dish we do not use. The side walls are growing on the driveway and it is getting a little bit narrower, so hopefully snow falls are almost done.

And the final circular view:

And the trees take center stage, when we exit we exit stage right not left. This is a series of six shots bottom row of three then the tree tops. Mid afternoon sun about 3pm for the pictures, sunrise was about 8:35 AKDT and sunset is at 7:58, so almost in the middle of the times. 11:23 hours of daylight, increasing rapidly, soon it will not set more than 6 degrees below the horizon in about three months a lot of sunshine, if it is not raining.

With the amount of snow we have had this year I hope it is a slow warm up or else we will have some pretty severe flooding again. But we wait and we will see what the future will be. If it is a fast melt down, the escape road will be a fun road to travel.

We've had very little snow where I'm at in the NE U.S. as well, compared to what we normally get. Now that I said that...I probably jinxed myself and a blizzard will come through while I'm asleep!!!!

I got spoiled the last two years since they were small snows. I thought with this season starting so late and only 2 snow falls of significant amount, 5 inches or more, I was hoping for a nice winter, but nope a very cold and snowy one this year. The 20's are roaring in for us in Alaska. Most of our big snows have been in the dark while people were sleeping this year, so i hope you didn't jinx yourself.

No 'jinx' as of yet :>) I awakened to a sunny 50 degree morning here in the lower forty-eight - Northeast.

Sunny check, 50 no fricken way for us, I woke to frozen toes, and Minus 6. It got cold last night. I thought we might be done with the single digits, but still getting the minuses.

!ENGAGE, enjoy the remains of the day, we are supposed to get back to about 22 degrees for the high this afternoon.

I have seen your post, I have seen the same post, I have asked several times to have this spam stop showing in my account. Learn a lesson from your so called book and show some respect to other. your actions are putting you on a one way trip to hell, never to see the light of your heaven. Trust in your God, not the idiot man that has put set you on this road to non-redemption. If you truly value your soul then you will change your ways. Read your book, but more importantly understand what your book is saying. Understand the parts that are Gods words and those that are not. Grow your soul do not some other lead your soul astray and into the clutches of hell.

But being a typical mis-led creatin you like do not even bother to read replies you receive, "suffer fools not gladly", and you sir/man/it are a fool, for actions speak loader than any words ever could.

Down-vote and mute these things @bashadow if you want to help them go away. I started to do that, but they're using multiple accounts, so I don't know how effective muting is :>[

Yeah muting helps in that it hides the comment, but me being me I just had to point out they are hell bound and inconsiderate, likely a bot that never reads the comments, the number one leader hiryo or what ever his name was stopped, i don't get crap comments from him any more.
