    This winter has been the snowiest in memory in this area according to the "old timers" I've spoken to in town, on the couple of occations in the last two months that I have been able to make it into town with my subaru.

    Not too bad really, but very unusual for this area. Most years even when you got a good snowfall, a couple of days later it was 60 degrees.

    Not this year.

    For the record, I quite enjoy the snow most times.
    But it isn't very conducive to getting any landscaping done.

    My biggest problem this week: I needed to get a large sculpture out of my shop for an exhibition install in early March. But the road was in such bad condition, I barely got my trailer up to the shop when it was unloaded. I just knew that putting an extra 1000# on it would make for a disaster coming down the hill. And my truck's bed just isn't big enough for the sculpture crate to sit in. I had to get 4x4 with a flatbed to come up and take the sculpture down to Asheville for me.

    PIA.

    YEah, that's the part that has been so brutal to my driveway. It never recovers from one snow before the next arrives. And at the same time, we've got a decent amount of construction traffic going up and down during our house construction (contractor told every sub to buy chains if they wanted to work up here).
    We've had a grading guy on standby for about 2 months, just waiting for some dry days to fix the driveway!!

    Same here on the driveway, I have a skid steer and have had to smooth the ruts out of mine 3 times so far, and its due for another load of gravel as soon as the spring arrives.

    Ditto on that. Sounds like something my wife and I would enjoy.

    It's the same one that was at the Asheville Arboretum back in 08.


    It's now going to North Georgia College for a year.

    If you have two of them opposite each other, you could hang a bunch of hammocks off of them.

    Very nice work.

    Was this really the 'prototype' for Semi Dutch Clips?

    I've had my fill of it. When I was a child I lived for four years in Nebraska, then another four years in Kansas. HOT summers and COLD winters, with a few tornados thrown in for good measure. I learned to like snow in Nebraska because I was able to simply go out and play in it. When we moved to Kansas I was old enough to shovel the driveway and sidewalk. Then we moved to England for three years and I got to see and shovel even MORE snow. That was enough for me.

    Just the mention of snow here in the Atlanta area will cause the locals to panic. BTW, we may see some Monday or Tuesday. Oh, joy.

    I'd like to participate in the upcoming hang, but since I've already scheduled time off in April for a camping trip I doubt that I'll get another chance to go for a while. Looks like a beautiful bit of land you have up there, though. Everyone that makes it should have a great time.
