Ours is finally melting after two weeks...But hold on cos I know it will be back with a vengeance.

Nice pic BTW
It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.

looks like a lovely won't scene.
A creaking creeping shadow
stiff against the freezing fog
glares at a tickless watch.

Time has failed him -- all things shall pass.

My wife said it's wonderful to see the freshly fallen snow.

Well it's be 3 days of freshly fallen (wet) snow and guess who had to move it 3 times.

I feel for you Larry.
Only had the snowblower out twice here so far.

Made a cord winder and got out the leaf blower (the blower works great on powdered snow!).

Really wish we only got powdered stuff as it would make life so much easier.
Also wish my garage looked as tidy as yours LOL

If he's like me he just tidied up a corner for the photo and then put all the rubbish back where it could be found when needed (sometime before the next millennium).

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

i don't understand why people shove instead of using a torch.

Shove ?

Nah not me machine is 28" wide 5 fwd speed and 2 rev speed with heated handles on mine...In 5th it drags me across the lawn and next doors too.
No I don't clear the lawn but I can throw the snow almost two doors down LOL.

I presume that should be "shovel"

Maybe the reluctance to use a torch has something to do with keeping the carbon footprint down.

Though I can see how people with that much snow might welcome a bit of global warming.

Hi,
Summer isn't here yet but already had massive bushfires, casualties and homes lost.
Queensland and New South Wales.

Conditions so bad, aerial firefighting equipment grounded in some areas.
Very lucky in my part of the country, so far....
Tom... :)
Everything runs on smoke, let the smoke out, it stops running....

Hi,
Luckily I have never experienced a bushfire, grass fire yes.
Grassfire lots of blindingsmoke, flames on the ground and if the wind is strong enough fireballs lighting fires up to 1km down wind.
Bushfire just as leathal, but in 3D, flames above, massive amounts of RADIANT HEAT.
The firefighter (probably a volunteer) is not wearing that yellow suit so he can be seen, but it still must be boiling wearing it.

Tom.. :o
