Oh, what was that? Why 9 hours did you ask?
Because I live in a building full of women!  ..-)


Oh, how sweet.  Sucker!!!!! :rofl_2:  No, seriously.  I'm glad you're helping the women out.  I know I complain about our weather, but I sure don't know what I would do if I lived in Chicago.   :scared:

I just don't know how much more I can take of the heat.

9 hours of shoveling decks, 1 coffee break...
...waiting for the flood of Biblical proportions once the Himalayans melt on the courtyard below...
pictures of the Himalayans to come.
I can't believe you're able to lift your arms to reach the mouse and keyboard!

We did 8 hours of snow removal on roofs yesterday.  Flat out the hardest work I've ever done.  Period.

Am looking forward to the run off in a few months as well.  It should make for some great walleye fishin' and awesome pics at the river!!!

Nice job helpin' de wimmens Bab.  How kind of them to give you a cup of Joe.


The snow is only about knee deep here. :))

Actually, since several were home stranded, we had 8 first responders, including 4 women. One girl is tough and always there to do the mens work. The others got tired after 1/2 to 2 hours. One chick that is about 4'11" and weighs 80lbs. She was out about an hour or more, but I can't imagine she could do a whole lot.

Surprisingly, I actually feel OK. I grew up on a ranch. I'll tell you this much, I couldn't clean sheep pins for 9 hours in the Cali heat even when I was a teen. This wasn't so bad because, for the most part, the snow was dry and powdery. The worst of it was on the 1st floor decks, because they caught all of the crap from 2 and 3 floors above. That was really packed high and heavy!

Unfortunately, the dum-basses here are incredibly short sighted. They think the worst is behind us. They see 2-3 tons of snow and see snow. I see massive flood. We don't have the drainage to handle this.

We're kind of screwed, too. We can't get a truck back there because of all the gates.


No hired help showed up. I sent an email to the residents explaining what 8 of us had done with no help from property management.

None of them thanked us. Losers.

The problem with us is that we didn't really get "SNOW".  We got ICE!

That is much worse. Of course, we'll have to deal with that unless we catch a break and it rains.

I haven't been able to follow what's going on outside my world but apparently the Chamber of Commerce isn't pleased because Dallas isn't raking in the kind of cash money they had hoped to generate.

I hope they make Jerry Jones write them a personal check to cover any losses. That's my Super Bowl hope.   ://

The "nightmare" super bowl continues.  Now they are reporting that the ice/snow is melting off the roof of Cowboy Stadium was sliding down and injured 5 people (one in critical condition).  What's next?????  They said we were going to get a 'dusting' of snow last night.  I woke up this morning to 7 inches of snow!  All on top of the ice we had the previous days!....and the temp is still below freezing at 25 degrees! :scared:

So the chairs starting appearing in shovelled parking spots.

Well, I could use a few chairs so I took them home.  :king:

No one bothered me about it as they probably didn't see me.
I could use another one so I'll take my pick later.

Australia sounds good right about now....oh...but aren't they getting ready for a cyclone or something? :confused1:  Maybe I'll just head down to Florida.  It was in the 80s or 70s yesterday.  Sounds good to me right about now. ;-()
