Bet that is much more welcomed than the ice and snow but doesn't make for a white Christmas.

Late November usually starts our "dry" season and cuts my mowing from weekly to every other week. This week and last we actually had quite some storms and rain so had to mow more than usual too.

It was colder on Halloween and Thanksgiving than it was on Christmas day here in Michigan. Go figure. We had six inches of snow on the ground at my place at the beginning of November. Earliest accumulation of snowfall on record. It all melts before Thanksgiving. We've had some teaser snow now and then but it too is all gone. We had a green and warm (for us) Christmas. It was 61 degrees on Thursday!

It may stay warm here (above 35) for the next week or so - so I may have yet another chance to suck up some more leaves. It depends on how much it rains / snows between now and then.

Has been in the high 60s to low 70s here in NC for the last couple of weeks....It's unusual but not uncommon for this time of the year...Supposed to turn more seasonal with highs in the low 50s in a couple of days.... Last year had record snowfall 2nd week of Dec...20 inches here in my yard...Have a herd of deer living around my house (Have to be really careful coming up my driveway to avoid hitting them) and they have been keeping the yard trimmed up for me...Since October

If it wasn't for the muddy roads, I was thinkin about a Dec cruise in da GTO.

Trust me a burnout on his street would break suspension stuff.  His driveway on the other hand has not been christened.

What kind of neighborhood do you live in? I dont see any tire smokin burnout marks in the road...i have a house for sale down the street from me!

Can I tear down the house and build a 4-20 car garage and get away with it from the city or township? If so, call me. We'll talk.

Remember you talking to the guy that can't park his cars at his own house. Grrrr...... :angry:

You haven't been to the house since they re-paved the street. Perhaps when the FrankenChevelle is finished you will have to christen the cul-de-sac!

What a difference a couple of days make.....

Yup, you wait 5 minutes in Michigan, the weather changes. In this case, you wait a couple of days and the weather really changes.....

Okay, so Saturday, December 28, 2019 - almost 50 degrees! I get to mow my lawn!

Tuesday, December 31, 2019 - 30 degrees, and lake effect snow - 1-3 inches and high wind advisories.

The bright side is the wind ripped most the remaining leaves off the oak tree!

Michigan guys head down there and don't know how to act in the warm weather.....at least in the 2nd half.    Mich lost the Citrus bowl.

Me either. Now I can say the Shea Patterson experience is now over. Good kid, a little above average player. Not a Heisman candidate that Old Miss seemed to think he was.

For the record, Eastern, Central and Western Michigan all lost their bowl games too. Only Michigan State won theirs.

Just cultivating them for future use..Is illegal to use a crossbow here in NC...Did get one (8 pointer) with my .480 Super Redhawk pistol a few weeks ago....Was too easy..Almost felt bad about it....
