Default Snow

For the 4th or 5th time in my 28+ years in Houston it is snowing. Growing up in Ohio made me despise snow, and the few flakes falling now do not change my opinion. The primary reason I don't like snow is because it has to be cold for snow to fall, and I really, really do not like the cold.

But before you start feeling sorry for me, we were in the 70s yesterday and will be back there this weekend.

Well I'm glad this thread ain't saying this disproves global warming. Our intelligence is proved by knowing that which has been named "global warming" is indicated by strange shifts in weather patterns. Dry areas get monsoons, wet areas go through droughts, Oregon gets wetter , Texas gets snow, and we here in Mass had 60 degrees today.

You just don't know what you will be stepping in as you walk out the door

And my guys were whining because it was snowing.

Actually, the day started with rain, so we had to pull off 2 exteriors.

I have my guys use blowdriers to melt the frost and raise surface temps. This way we dont even have to be working in the sun.

Darch, that there bag a shet is too big man, you want them to be able to stomp it out, that bags to tall to stomp, it would most likely get kick off the porch, hence, waistin the shet.

I know that. But it is the only image google offered to demonstrate the concept. And I warn't about to take no picture of the right way - actually there was a force greater than me that stomped my fecal contentions. IYKWIM
