Scary - YES . If it had gone the other way it would have taken the AS right down the middle . Good healthy pine , snapped of half way up. Part of the problem is some of the neighbors have clearcut , and in so doing have changed the wind pattern.

We were planning on bringing our trailer home today. Mother Nature had other plans. between yesterday and this morning we have received about 6 inches of snow. I guess we will wait another few days.

Thankfully, we are seeing the snow melt. The big drift in front of the garage is now only about five feet deep, dropping several inches for every warm day. The only problem we have now is to try to control the run off. There's an enormous amount of water around here!

Metro-Detroit snow facts for this winter

The fifth snowiest winter on record, so far...
The third coldest winter on record, so far...
Average snowfall for Detroit is 39 inches. We have just finished another storm last night that put us over 59 inches for the winter, so far...
Major counties are running out of a supply of rock salt, (Detroit sits on top of some of the largest deposits of salt). The news media reports that they cannot get it out of the ground fast enough to keep up with demand. Most counties and cities have gone to mixing sand with the salt. The freeze/thaw has torn up the concrete on almost all of the major thorough-fares. Potholes are the size of mortar craters!
I am assuming that the Tigers will have to shovel the field for opening day.
I am so tired of snowfall then snow melt that I am beginning to defrost my freezer and stopping halfway through it! YUCK!

Caribou, Maine set a new all-time record of 182.5 inches of snow on Friday -and Mt. Washington was having 115 mph winds! A bit further south in mid-Maine we still have a solid snow cover of around 2 to 3 feet in the open - but much deeper in the wooded areas. The snow is also packing a lot of moisture. The Ski resorts are happy since several of them may still be entertaining guests in July! A lot of our melt locally has been due to radiation and low humidity. Hopefully, we won't get any drastic and sudden heat waves that could generate flooding.

Frost heaves are becoming a nightmare! I drove down route 1A from Bangor, Me. to Ellsworth, Me. this afternoon - with the empty GMC dually - and we literally got beat to heck! For the record, this is a route many of you might consider if you plan on visiting Acadia National Park this summer - or have plans to go on to New Brunswick or Nova Scotia. A much better alternate is to take the route from Bangor, Me. (---also "1A") direct to Bucksport, Me., via Winterport, Me., and then north on route 1 to Ellsworth. At that point you can proceed North to New Brunswick via what is known as the "Airline" road - or continue further East to Acadia. I can't vouch for the road from Ellsworth to Acadia but, alas, you haven't got a choice if you plan to visit the park! Maine is struggling, like many states, to find sufficient funds to repair the roads damaged by this past winter.

Hey Cracker, I here ya! Been on some of those roads during our Winterport excusion and can imagine the frost heaves. we've got some of the most wicked frost heaves I've seen in decades. And the snow banks... still have to get out of the car and stand up at the intersection to see if there is any oncoming traffic! Ski areas are still making snow (12-15 degrees every night) and grooming. The trails are great. Great weather for Fancy Grade maple syrup, as well.

Ugh - it's the end of March and there's more snow in the forecast. I can't believe it - but I have to cancel my routine maintenance appointment for my A/S 'cause I can't get it out of the storage barn it's in!

Some friends just made the drive down to Florida via the I-81 and the I-95, and they said that south of Syracuse (NY) there's no snow whatsoever!

We're still up past our necks in snow. Ya gotta love Mother Nature!
