The crew returned from ballasting at 10:30 and didn't go back out.  We left at 3.

Today's  high was 63*, which melted alot of the 51" of snow we had. Weekend forcast is for below zero temperatures and up to 8" of snow. Are you sure you don't want some?

High Sunday was in the 60's in Portland. Rain snow mix Monday, 30 degrees Tuesday. Plow trucks aren't getting much mileage this year.

By the way, Keep the snow. Melt it and send it to Kansas. They were in a drought

Ira, just the past two nights we're getting some semblance of winter weather here in Connecticut.  As I write this I hear the snow making machines humming away at the Mt. Southington Ski Area about 1/4 mile from us - maybe you could send soem to them.
Bet you folks up in Maine must finally be getting some ice on your ponds.

Some. Very unusual for a lot of the lakes to be open this time of year. Hard to go icefishing with no Ice. Here in Waterford there might be 2 inches of hard crunchy snow. But travel as close as Bridgton, and it disappears. Maybe next year, we will be back in the snowbelt. And I'm pretty sure there is still no snow in Alna. Hard to run a snow train with no snow.

No snow in Alna as of last night.

That could change on Monday.

Nope. All set. Built a nice fire in the fireplace. Nice and cozy in here.
Mid 20's now and supposed to warm up a little more tomorrow.  Just as long as it stays away from the goose egg, I don't mind it at all.
