Finally it's warmed up and starting to thaw a bit. I still have a half mile river of ice for a driveway, but got it sanded this week so we can get in and out. Looks like it will be sunny and in the forties today with warmer weather coming next week. Been a rough winter my friends.

Got this link from another forum and it's pretty interesting.

The green dots on this Google Earth represent a radio station anywhere in the world.


Click on any one of the dots and you will immediately listen to that station with very good sound. I cannot imagine the effort that went in to this!

Our range has been closed due to ice and heavy snow for a while. Going into withdrawals. Should reopen this week and I'm ready.

Yep - upper 50's all this week - just learned our February snow was the most in history - ever. Down to about a foot on the flats but about 3' between my shop and house (roof run off) and still no water but I have been talking to the experts and they FIRMLY believe it is nothing more than a case of silt/sand plugging. The silt is at the bottom of the foot valve which suggests once the well filled with sand I was sucking sand and keeping it at the level of the bottom of the valve - which makes sense. Also a guy I know knowledgeable in wells said there is NO WAY I am out of water - this 'valley' I live in is literally waterlogged - two rivers and I am in the middle of them and being in winter water tables are as high as ever - conclusion ? I need a 'bailout' and have a guy to call to discuss it. The problem is snow and if he can get a truck to my well head to suck it out. It may be another week or so until It clears enough to get a truck behind my house to the well head.

Reminds me of a time when part of the Florida Panhandle, that I had family in, was out of power for 3 days in the Winter. From that point on, I have made sure I have had a primary and secondary forms of heat. Water, that is a biggie.

Be real good to hear how deep that well actually is after being pumped out. I was thinking the same thing earlier with you being between the two branches of the Deschutes.

Ya! And it actually got to maybe 66, 67 today. So I spent some time on the back deck warming bones in the sun! Got a good warm soak. Looking forward to more. Wishing everyone else a speedy spring warmup! May your snow and ice melt quickly!

Morning all. Time for some Irish coffee. It'll help my attitude while watching the snow melt today.
