    Re: Who Got A March Snowfall?

    Well I can't get the bonus point for a photo as it's to cold to walk outside and take a picture of our cover. First few days in March here in Eastern Ohio were mild and enjoyable. Youngest daughter found her way to the park while I got some work done outside in a light jacket. Fast forward a week and the kids had a 2hour delay today due to snowy/icy roads.

    Yup, snow. Or should I say "yuck" snow? In Michigan with a 24' ice cube. I did order my TF100 refill kit yesterday though.

    Same here on Long Island. Made it through the winter OK but two storms of heavy, wet snow within the last week have destroyed a lot of our arborvitae and other bushes. I can't wait for the pool to be uncovered. Even if it's too cold to swim, it's just nice seeing the water.

    Re: Who Got A March Snowfall?

    we got crushed last friday. i live outside the poconos where they had no power for 10 days. i'm a few miles off 380 off 81 where it was a standstill for 9 hours and people just started to walk from their cars cause the tracker trainer drivers tried to get off the highways and clogged up the side country roads. it was a mess. we were ok though. just a lot of snow. but then it melted real quick and since there it has been 4 here 3 here but it melts each day. i have been pretty pool proactive. my ice is off so when it melts i get out and pump down. we have school delays again today cause we keep getting small squalls with bad winds. i'm doe with this. it's just annoying at this point.

    sunday is 50 and sunny. we are busting out the yaks and going fishing! ice is off all the lakes and ponds so it's feeding time for the fish.

    i feel for you guys southeast of me. you are all getting crushed the past 2 weeks.last night you all got whomped again. it's almost over though. this isn't buffalo so once april hits we are all good. up there you might get a dumping late april i remember years ago.
