Hi Børge,

 

That a lot of snow…..

You can dig a tunnel to go out…...

And I was complaining about a little snow that we have.

Good luck with your shovel  :)

Hi Jim

 

Well, it havent been that much snow earlier this winther, its typical at this time of year that we get a "lot" of snow.

Back in 1997 we had 2,4 mtrs at the end of April.

 

We dont want that again  :)

Hi Popeye

 

Luckily we have a snowblower, if not we would be isolated inside until the summer :)

Hi Borge,

 

Just caught up with your build, amazing progress my friend, all the upgrades you've made have really spruced her up, you're a master of both wood and metal Sir, excellent work :)
