WM, I sure don't miss those spring snow storms in Alberta. The weather has been beautifull here with temps reaching the mid teens. Today will be another nice one and I expect to finish the final touchs on the outside of the cabin. We are putting on metal cladding. WTS, I haven't put away the snow shovel yet, I heard Sask can get those freak storms too.

Happy shoveling!

Ya, probably at least a foot here on the west end of Edmonton and still coming down hard.  This is going to fix the moisture problem a bit.  Real wet stuff too.  It is melting and settling fast so I wonder how much we didi get.  Some trees are breaking from the weight now.
We have a greed with which we have agreed...
Society, you're a crazy breed.
I hope you're not lonely without me.

Well up here at the rig in the Wabasca wonderland we got an inch overnight and then in the last 1.5hrs we have gotten another 4inches and still coming down hard. Feel bad for the boys outside tripping pipe in this crap. Tallest tree around are the ones the power lines are attatched to and the wind is a blowing!!
