Woke up this morning and guess what… three inches of new and drizzle.  With the temperature around 35 degrees, it bounced back and forth between snow and drizzle.  Not a very nice day, but not the worst we ever had.


On Nov 28, we were fortunate to tag along with the crew of the Joy when it moved into the shop for refurbishing. Here is a video Jim put together on the process.


The Leland Report/Leif Spork Snow Gauge contest is closed. We had a total of 47 entries. We will report the final tally on 4/30/16!

Thanks for the video. I’m always impressed by people doing interesting work with no instruction book.

Wonderful video of the Joy, thanks so much for sharing, and I hope it is OK if I share on facebook, too cool not to. 🙂

Winter snow scenes are a joy to behold. (I reserve the right to change my tune in March.)
