We ended up getting around an inch at best today. I did make some money as I did have to shovel out 10 driveways. I would have really preferred more, like a foot, as I would have had much more work to do, but this is better than nothing.

I am still hoping for a good storm, but at this point I am starting to lean more towards an early spring being much nicer. I am really looking forward to doing some mowing soon, especially with that zero turn as that thing is really quite fun!

Another snowless Monday but the rumor is 1-3 inches tomorrow, starting in the morning and ending around 1 to 2 in the afternoon. At this point I would really rather an early spring but I will shovel if we get anything. I am not sure we are going to see much.

I am hoping to get some parts for my Honda soon, and if it warms up again, I will have them installed before grass is ready to start growing. They will be pretty easy to install so it mainly finding the time and a nice day to get them installed.

The rumor is a small snowfall may come on Tuesday, with totals around 1-3 inches or so, depending on track and timing. I am not sure what is going to happen as we may end up with a coating only, so we shall see when it gets here what happens.

I am still also unsure about the larger storm next weekend, as it is still a week away, a lot of things can, and will, change before it gets here. I just want one large storm, over 8 inches, and I will be happy. If we don’t get any real snow soon, this will be another way below average year.

I am thinking we may have some snow this week with a small clipper, and then a nor’easter on Sunday, if all goes well. If we get the big storm on Sunday, I may finally get a real chance to use the new snow blower on something other than ice!

The inch of sleet and heavy snow did well to test it though, but it wasn’t easy to clean up that mess. I am going to just take things one day at a time and see what happens and what we get though, as that is all I can really do at this point.

Well, we have snow showers today but nothing stuck. I did work on some more recipes today as well. I am hoping to start using some more of the old PDAs and stuff I have again. I am also looking forward to spring as well, so I want to get more typed up soon.

I am also going to try and start working on writing more as well. I always say I am going to work on it and I end up getting distracted and I don’t do any writing, or when I try and start my mind won’t focus and I end up doing something else anyway.

Today was pretty windy but no snow came with the cold front. The next chance maybe in the first week of February, so we shall see what happens. Sadly, they usually are wrong, so I don’t see it happening yet, but as it gets closer, maybe it will happen.

I did work on some recipes today as well. I was also looking at options for keeping tires on the mower inflated when I am out. I was looking at some CO2 ones, but they use threaded cartridges on the good ones, and would need several to fill a mower tire I would think.

I ended up putting Windows back on the Yoga due to some issues with the touch screen being less useful, as well as my mouse freezing up a lot. I may dual boot it sometime in the future, but for now, its going to be kept as a Windows machine.

I would like to get a new, much larger, SSD for the Yoga though but don’t feel like spending the money on one. I would, ideally, add a M.2 SSD keep the SATA III one installed though. Maybe if I find a good deal on a SATA SSD though, I may upgrade it.
