Honestly, I much prefer the winters in upstate New York where we average 250 inches of snow a year. Being right on Lake Ontario helps keep everything a little bit warmer, so it rarely drops below 15-20 degrees. But at the same point, being right on Lake Ontario means you get [expletive] dumped on with snow literally every single day.

Damnit, I miss plowing snow in my tractor.


I'm just joking. I miss my upstate NY winters a bit but my wife is of Buzz's opinion. We have never lived in colder climes because of that.

Forecasts for this weekend show anywhere between 5-10 more inches of snow with single digit temps remaining through next week. Brutal start to December.

Ha. Luckily my wife grew up right where I worked, so she has 26+ years of living there. She's been wanting to move back ever pretty much since we first moved to South Carolina back in 2014.

Sounds like the normal bipolar weather in the Ozarks.

Just a never ending [expletive] avalanche of dirty laundry.
