I like the sno-melter from 1960 idea.
It comes complete with flame throwing jets!

Oh, just saw the MiG-15 engines mounted on a truck.  That is even more awesome.
Where can I buy one?

Yes, like others I have nowhere left to put the white stuff.

It looks like we are getting another couple of days of over 40C

Now all we need is some prick/s deciding to light fires.

Sigh..

Got the fire fighting gear ready, made sure I know where all the hoses are.

cyberteque, update your profile with a location - where are you that it is 40C?

South Australia, near Echunga, google "Jupiter Creek"

Send me your email address, I'll scan myself and you can print me out there! :-)

Ok!
Done!
If you google "Jupiter Creek" or "Echunga", you'll find a heap of my video's and photographs.
Same goes for a search on flikr or YouTube.
I'm very rabid with my still and video camera and I post a lot!

googling either brings up a ton of hits, no way to determine which are yours. Need something to narrow the search a bit.

Off to bed for me, back tomorrow, give the snowblower a once over before the next 2 storms hit us back to back starting Tuesda with 20 inches of snow  between them, topped with sleet & ice ...

Over the next two days or so, we are supposed to get between fifteen and twenty four (depending upon who you listen to) inches MORE snow, now.  The snow blower croaked two storms ago.  Chances are the kids are going to have school canceled AGAIN, at least one day if not more.  There's also simply no place to put that quantity of new snow.  We are going to be facing some serious flooding in the spring if it warms rapidly.

I finally got the salvaged Rovio working (though only about 30mins battery life).. wish it was better suited for ice and snow.. it would be awesome to send it out mars-lander style and let one of you guys from Australia or Europe or whatever drive the sucker around in the frigid drifts of the suburbs of Boston...

When the testing is complete there will be... cake.

National Weather Service forecasts are not saying anywhere near that amount. Can only wait & see now ...

To paraphrase an add for some other white stuff: Got (more) snow?

Over here they seem to close the schools now when theres little more than an inch of snow on the ground.  Health and Safety!
