We we ventured out in the 4WD Yukon...made it to work to pick up my stranded Volvo (left it in the parking garage) and some work to take home. The snow route roads were pretty good, nobody on them...I think I'll by getting my car home today & parking it for awhile.

Chuck,
I can understand some of them being off like ORD for Chicago and DCA is now Ronald Reagan (but we still call it National ) Somewhere there is a history of how the airports were named way back when and Chicago ORD used to called Orchard Field because it was built on the site of an old fruit orchard...now about MDT....

I,ve just made the decision that I'm going to break down and buy a snowblower. I finally got dug out about an hour ago. My neighbor has a big trackdrive Honda unit that he let me use to finish up after I was about 95% done. I have not ventured out on the roads yet, and have no desire to do so. I live on a 14% slope, dead end road, and Its very entertaining to watch non neighbors drive down the hill and then try to get back out. Right now the neighborhood children have taken over the hill for sledding. I,ve got plenty of food, the furnace is kicking out hot air, and there is a fresh case of cold, Molson Canadian in the shop fridge. Life is good

Yeah, we are fortunate to live on a road used for emegency access so we get plowed early. Good thing we didn't park in the garage, the alley is not plowed...and we are in the middle of the block, it won't be passable for a couple of days.

You never told me you had a shop! And cool avatar, too, by the way. One of these days I'm going to get back up there and let you teach me how to buck rivets--I need to do that when I replace my vista view windows with 0.050 sheet and insulation.

I was thinking about giving a bucking class but I don't know if there would be any intrest in this area. Would do you think Shari? And yes I have a woodshop in the basement.

I think it would be a great thing to offer at the DenCO May Maintenance Rally or it would be even better suited at the RMVAC rally as a seminar, kinda like the polishing demonstration we have each year. Either that or something more low-key like a couple of VAC'rs could make it an afternoon field-trip...

Cool! Let's talk & figure out something that we could set-up ~

Thanks!

Shari

Just heard from our son, grandson, and their friends enroute to blizzard-bound Colorado per my earlier post on this thread. For anyone wondering, they dropped down to 50 Hwy, they were approaching Pueblo, and except for a few rough patches of packed snow, he reported easy driving. He's calling ahead to check conditions, plans to go 50 to Salida and then turn north to Leadville and over to Copper Mountain. My heart still stands still, but he talked with the resort who told him some of their employees came to work this morning from Leadville without incident. He still has a long drive, but they are relieving one another driving. He says most of the heavy snowfall is east of there. Forum friends, I'll appreciate your good thoughts tonight for my dear, determined son and his carfull. For everyone out there, we hope the heaviest snow and winds are over and you are safely tucked in or plowed out! Thanks, G

Deep and white in Denver ...

Well, it looks like we're going to have a White Christams in Denver this year! The last two days were spent snowblowing neighbor's sidewalks and driveways, and shoveling while they used my John Deere 24" snowblower. Yesterday after dark we have a great community pork chop dinner washed down with smooth homemade wine. Today's lunch break was New England clam chowda and crusty bread, with beer, wine and water for the truly thirsty. It's been a two day block party in snowsuits.

Ruby got thoroughly dusted under her roof, while the 64 Globe Trotter has snow above its wheel wells and door bottom. Snow depth exceeds 3' in my backyard, but is not really apparent in the photos. I have 8 days to shovel out the GT before heading off to Rocky Mountain National Park, where I'll ring in the New Year with close Vintage friends from our Denver Unit.
