40 and steady rain here...kinda glad it's not snow.  Never saw a winter like this.  We normally have about 40+ inches by now...we have barely had 6 inches.

We finally got hit on tuesday. only about 4 inches, but it hit in the afternoon, right as we were taking the kids home. I had to chain up and the roads got so slick suddenly that a lot of people got stuck. took me almost 9 hours to get everyone back, and it's only about a 40 mile route.

Winter is finally here...late this season, but finally here...about 8 inches since 6:00 this morning and another 6 to 12 overnight expected.

Love my shovel...but my tractor is special!

I think about you out there on these slick road days. Be safe.

The cold has hit. We haven't had much snow really, more ice. Just enough  make the roads dangerous.

I have crazy tire chains. I'm mostly worried about somebody else sliding into me. Thanks for the concern though 🙂
