How's the snow treating everybody? Down in lindenhurst I got between 18-36 inches depending on the drifts. Missed work and my snowblower died. But other than that not bad cause I spent 2 hours in the snow with my dog. Wish I was at the range though, this is mosin weather. Are any of you guys able to shoot today?

I only got 6-12 here in Nassau. Hell yeah I wish I was at the range. Calverton probably won't be up and running until next weekend.

About 10 inches here in Fayetteville (I'm at work). Not enough to slow things down much, just a nuisance clearing the parking lot. Tomorrow looks like it's going to be a nice day to do some shooting!

Not too bad, especially when you have two nice neighbors. One cleared my driveway apron with his plow and the other cleared my sidewalk and walkway with his snow-blower.

I still had to clean off two cars, work truck and clear a path to my shop but I can't complain.

We had about a foot where I live in Southern Niagara County (Pendleton). I must've cleared my driveway 3 or 4 times since yesterday. What was obnoxious about this snow is that it would stop, then pick up again 10 minutes after I put away the shovel. I was ready to start pouring gasoline all over the place and torching the snow.

My buddy who is a naval officer in RI said he had about 2.5 ft. of snow there, along with 50-60mph winds. Much worse than what we faced in Western NY yesterday.

I didn't measure, but it was enough for me NOT to shovel. I just took my shovel and hung around outside for about 15 minutes. Deciding what to do. Being 64 I get sore shoveling. Three teenagers came by all carrying shovels. $5 apiece. Saved my back and heart! Gave each a $2 tip. My lucky day.

More MVA's (motor vehicle accident reports) in two days than I've ever seen. Very difficult to get anywhere quickly, etc. So from a work perspective, it sucks.

At home, the kids have had a blast outside this weekend!!

Dear Diary,


AUG 12 Moved to our new home in upstate New York. It is so beautiful here. The mountains are so majestic. Can hardly wait to see them with snow on them. I love it here.


OCT 14 Upstate New York is the most beautiful place on earth. The leaves are turned all the colors and shades of red and orange. Went for a ride through the beautiful mountains and saw some deer. They are so graceful, certainly they are the most wonderful animal on earth. This must be paradise. I love it here.


NOV 11 Deer season will start soon. I can't imagine anyone wanting to kill such a gorgeous creature. Hope it will snow soon. I love it here.


DEC 2 It snowed last night. Woke up to find everything blanketed with white. It looks like a postcard. We went outside and cleaned the snow off the steps and shoveled the driveway. We had a snowball fight (I won), and when the snow plow came by, we had to shovel again. What a beautiful place.
I love upstate New York.


DEC 12 More snow last night. I love it. The snow plow did his trick again to the driveway. I love it here!


DEC 19 More snow last night. Couldn't get out of the driveway to get to work. I am exhausted from shoveling. ****ing snow plow.


DEC 22 More of that white **** fell last night. I've got blisters on my hands from shoveling. I think the snow plow hides around the curve and waits until I'm done shoveling the driveway. *******!


DEC 25 Merry ****ing Christmas! More friggin snow. If I ever get my hands on that son-of-a-bitch who drives that snow plow, I swear I'll kill the bastard. Don't know why they don't use more salt on the roads to melt the ****ing ice.


DEC 27 More white **** last night. Been inside for 3 days except for shoveling out the driveway after that snow plow goes through every time. Can't go anywhere, car's stuck in a mountain of white ****. The weatherman says to expect another 10" of the **** again tonight. Do you know how many shovels full of snow 10" is?


DEC 28 The ****ing weatherman was wrong. We got 34" of that white **** this time. At this rate it won't melt before next summer. The snow plow got stuck up the road and that bastard came to the door and asked to borrow my shovel. After I told him I had broken six shovels already shoveling all the **** he pushed into the driveway, I broke my last one over his ****ing head.


JAN 4 Finally out of the house today. Went to the store to get food and on the way back a damned deer ran in front of the car and I hit it. Did about $3,000 damage to the car. Those ****ing beasts should be killed. Wish the hunters had killed them all last November.


MAY 3 Took the car to the garage in town. Would you believe the thing is rusting out from that ****ing salt they put all over the road.


MAY 10 Moved to Georgia. I can't imagine why anyone in their right mind would want to live in that God-forsaken state of New York.
