74 here Tuesday, 44 yesterday and 40 mph wind gusts. Have to say I'm ready for some spring myself. And I don't miss winters when I lived in Ohio. Plenty of seasonal change here in mid TN.

We had a little seasonal change over the night woke this morning to 7 degrees and an inch of new snow. If they would have called the snowiest city in the USA 2013-14 on the first day of spring we would have won hands down but they let it go till any chance of snow is gone I guess, and Syracuse is sneaking up the list. And now we are only in first place by .3 inches.

I really don’t want a tee shirt that says “I live in the second snowiest city in the country” “by a smidgen” So we came this far I’m all in for another good dumping on and get it over. We measure out snowfall at the airport and they say we are at 130.7” and where I moved to 30 miles south of town I know we have at least hit 200” plus this year.

Craving spring I cut some buds off several of my flowering shrubs a week ago and brought them in the house to force them. My kitchen window on the inside says spring outside it still looks frozen. The next season we get here is called “snud” really looking forward to the snow/mud mixture.

Ha Ha you got it. We might go for the trifecta this year, Snow, Rust and Mosquitos.

I pulled my GMC 2500 up beside the garage Friday after work and the mud was 8 inches deep. Was quite interesting this morning as my tires were froze in the ruts. 2WD didnít cut it 4WD low range got the job done but the first five miles was a little bumpy.

Well it is warming 13 deg F this morning so it was nice to wear a ball cap again. The bad news is that @#$%&%$ Syracuse is up 130.9 to 130.7 as of this morning even though I brushed off 2 inches of fresh powder at my house they didn’t get much at the airport. They are calling for a couple more inches in the Snow Belt today maybe some of that will drop off in town.

12 degrees and 3 inches of new snow at my house this morning they had to get an inch or two at the airport. Take that Syracuse. This could be our last hoorah as they are talking 50 by the end of the week.

Now if I could just get them to move that airport south about 10 miles.

As a side note the airport has an international designation Erie International, I think we have a flight that goes the 30 miles across the lake.
