I guess they consider an inch as "White" and we had less, so didn't quite measure up this year. That's okay, last time i flew out west they had a blizzard while i was gone, so i told Suzn just call the plow. She did, and when i got back the loader it piled as high as our trees out front, so we generally get plenty! :)
After 2 weeks, when i went to start the car in Fargo's long-term parking, they'd had blizzard and drifting too so it took a few extra licks to get all 4 cylinders popping, when i rocked it outa the imprint & pulled up front to load luggage and i saw steam or something - i lifted the hood and the whole engine compartment was full of snow! The radiator, fan, belts, alternator, everything was drifted full. Funniest thing i ever saw - only the black air-cleaner was peeking out! Its a wonder that thing turned over, but it did & it got me 90 miles home that way. Next day i sloshed 2 pails of warm water over it.
So we have a ways to go to avoid a dry Spring. :)

DC, that story remins me of a similar thing what happened to my old buddy, Blueear Jack Crawford. Back in '54 he was working in Egypt where they was building an oil pipeline. Well, it seems he bought a Zlin Soviet Naval Artillery truck off this arab and he left it parked for a couple weeks and there was this big sand storm and acourse it covered the truck right up. They tried everything to find it but never did 'til they brought up this guy that had a Sniffing Camel. That camel sniffed around for about 15 minutes and them started jumping up and down one spot. They dug down and there was the truck. All this time though the Soviet Navy was watching and arrested them all. The truck was stolen. Blueear got sentenced to 7 years hard labor in Gulag Archipelago. That's were he learned the lumberjack trade and became a champion axe cutter, but that's another story.

Ana - wow, what a story!    Posted 12-26-2002 at 08:30:47       [Reply]  [No Email]
That is one amazing story! My father used to tell about snow like that, but thank goodness I've not seen it. Usually here we get ice and I hate that stuff even more! 4X4's don't help a lot with that---just VERY careful driving! The best vehicle I had for that was a very old Jeep with extra weight in it. It was geared very slow--could just barely do 55 on the highway, but could it move on ice and snow! I have a newer Jeep now, but it's more like a car--just not the same--more for city and highway driving.
