Default Enough Snow!!!!

It's been a long winter up here in Maine this year! Here it is March 26th and there's still three feet plus on the ground.

Here's a few pics for you southern guys. We've lost many buildings from the weight of the snow. A friends boat storage building collapsed with over 90 boats inside. Pretty much all destroyed.

Here's a few more I just took. Our fishing boat has finally appeared and our Donzi is starting to melt. Both boats are on trailers.
Still buried next to the motor home is an F-350 plow truck.

Winter '08 has been a strong one, we got the first snow Thanksgiving weekend and we'll still have snow on the ground for a good 4-5 weeks. Five months of winter is just too much. I'm ready to move south!

No pics but here's a testament to Cigarette for ya.
A buddy of mine's barn also collapsed from the snow load with his Top Gun inside along with several cars and his mint condition Aristocraft. When the roof fell in, it landed on the deck of the Gun. The trailer under the Gun flattened, but the Mighty Cigarette held up the rest of the building. Zero damage to the other boats and cars and minimal damage to the Cigarette!

DAmn.... we're lucky if we had 4 inches of snow this winter.... We usually get a helluva lot more than that but I'm not complaining!

Heck the grass seed I threw down started to grow a little this week and I put the drives back on the boat last Saturday....
