    3-4" of snow yesterday, up to a foot tomorrow. It was 53 degrees on Sunday. How the hell I supposed to shoot my crossbow when my rag bag is frozen and my other targets have to be stored in a shed? LOL. Curse of New England weather.

    I was visiting a buddy in 1983 in Decatur, Alabama. On New Years day they got about 1/2" of snow, and it was insane on the road. There was a bit of ice too, and no salt trucks!

    From what i hear Atlanta just purchased 2 million dollar's worth of snow equipment & left it sitting in the garage until after the storm hit. Please God don't get me started down the political road!!! :mad:

    5+ more inches of white frozen crap on the ground already and coming down at 1+ inch per hour. Expecting 12" or more, then switch over to sleet and freezing rain.

    Yeah, I know, I live in northwest CT, so I need to just suck it up, but even after 38 years of living in this God forsaken state, I hate the snow and cold.

    Think spring and TURKEY HUNTING i love hunting Turkeys with my crossbow ,the last turkey i shot with a shotgun was in 2004 i started hunting with my ten point crossbow in 2007 from there on its been only with the crossbow its a lot more excitement hunting with the crossbow no noise plus its easy to get a double which i did several times have two toms come out stick one the other one will run over and start to beat the crap out of his dead buddy plenty of time to reload and stick the second one with a bolt.

    Just finished digging my daughter's car out, she drove into the snow drift in front of our house at 3:30 am coming home from work! She woke me up to tell me, what a sweetie.;) The walk way here has over 40" of snow, I have to blow it forward now, the snow blower won't make it over the top anymore!:mad:

    13" on the ground here today. Just finished cleaning the driveway and cars off. 2+ hours of my life I will never get back.

    Thank God for the JAWGA BOYZ gittin' me through with their redneck hick-hop stylings. I am a country fan at heart, with a metal affinity, but this hick-hop rings true to me.

    I took the day off work, drove my wife to work, drove my daughter to the university, and back, cleared all the snow, then made a few strings for a buddy. Picked up my wife, and it's snowing again!
    You gotta love it!
