The spring has been announced - tomorrow...

This is what it looked like in my driveway half an hour ago. The new snow has changed to rain and is now on the point of freezing.

Too much for this machine...

Nice shot, but I'm sick of snow. It's raining here today.

Uff, ja, me har ein gardsveg på eit par hundre meter så eg veit godt kva dette dreier seg om. Værst er det når me ventar mjølkebilen til gards. Mannen min jobbar også utanom garden, kven skal då brøyte? Ein dag var det ti cm snø som ikkje var brøyta ferdig (mannen min var i gong) og mjølkebilsjåføren hadde ikkje tid å vente ti-femten min. 900 liter førsteklasses mjølk måtte me tappe ut! Eg var litt nedfor den kvelden. "Det nyttar ikkje å gråte over spilt mjølk" heiter det, men det må vere lov å vere litt lei seg...

Nå regnar det heldigvis vekk!
God helg :)

eep!

We got 3 inches last night. 6 inches about a week ago. This has been 1 of the top 5 snowiest winters in decades. I love it. But when it gets rainy and mushy (and our basement leaks), well then....

Time for hot chocolate!

What machine is it?
I thought we had every machine going but this one baffled me.

It is a Swedish snow blower called Stiga - costs about 1000£ and can usually handle the load. The problem is when it gets to wet.

We too are having snow and i am sick of it as well. But you have more than we have, hate when the rain comes and it freezes.

Well Spring has got to come eventually....Too much snow is not a good thing. Hope it melts soon.

Hey Runee, But you do like the snow also, do you? I do see my hike in Luxemburg from last week where we walked IN the snow!

I dag tidlig stod jeg hjemme ved parkeringsplassen og "fresa" Bilen var nedsnødd og kommunal brøyting var elendig. Da skulle du ha vært der med den maskinen.
Men når jeg har valgt å ta hjem MC`n, plassert den i garasjen uten tanke på at vinteren er over så kan jeg ha det så godt. Eller :-(

We had snow three times this week. Today was the first time I saw it coming down so beautifully BUT it didn't last because it rained on top of it.

I have something for you over at my blog -- please stop by and pick it up!

Annie said...

You need me to come with my snow shovel in hand. I'll bail you out!

Ida said...

Nå regner resten bort ja.... ;)
God helg i regnet! :)

Finally, some moments without having to think on things to do tomorrow and with time to come and enjoy your posts! Hope it is already melted today... The window picture for sky watch is gorgeous! Your Victorinox stories are amazing. And finally the Back to Winter picture is a great shot!
Thanks for your comments at Blogtrotter where I'm now strolling around Bilbao!
Have a great weekend!
