Gator's and snakes or leeches, oh my. we do have seasons this far south. Hot, then very hot and muggy with tropical rain. Snowbirds are turning into movedowns at an alarming rate and turning the state red by shades.

I just can't pass up a chance to stick the snow people with a friendly needle.

Poke away. I live North of reptile country for a reason. I'd sooner shovel and clear snow than deal with snakes and gators. We have leeches too, but typically in places I avoid.

Feel free to remember what you are missing this fall deer season at your buddy’s ranch in northern Michigan.

Seems like no one has ever run a snow blower on the back of a tractor.

I like the idea!
I grew up where you blow the snow or you run out if places to push it. I live in an area now where most people push the snow, so I am seeing the value of a blade. This is a good alternative, especially for those of us with a receiver on the FRONT of their truck, complete with power port.

The snow has hit us here in Wheatland. About 2" on the ground. 32F. 10-15mph breeze. House bound today.

Supposed to freeze here last night.
Sort of like a left wing election promise, didn't happen.
Getting warmer this week.
We picked all the tomatoes though. They could have gone for at least another week. Now they are going to be ripe all at once.

We did our maters yesterday. Lots of green ones left.

Of course we didn't get snow. I just finished a snow removal device. Wouldn't surprise me if we didn't see snow here till Remembrance Day now....

The forecast is for low 70s and high 60s here for the next week. Doesn't mean there isn't a risk of overnight frost though.

You are being punished for being prepared.
