Summer is officially over

. . . at least up on the tundra. The 2011-2012 snowplowing bill for the driveway at the Retirement Bunker arrived today.
The photo is an old one. Here's a view in the summer of more or less that same stretch of driveway 30+ years later. Rewilding in action.


  1. Got quite a shock to see that snow picture! :)

  2. Summer has finely arrived here, it's been beautiful the last week and Terry and I had a GREAT camping trip.

    We seldom get more snow here than what I can move with my riding mower.

  3. I would imagine it is no fun at all to pay a snow-plowing bill in September.

  4. Not much fun, but not a shock -- it is a part of the country where we joke about enjoying 9 months of winter and 3 months of rough sledding.

  5. That second picture is a highway?
    I remember the old wing plows in the 50's. They would make a ridge of snow on each side which would drift full, next big blow. soon the bad cuts in the hills would be impassible. At least you had trees in UP.


My space, my rules: play nice and keep it on topic.
