Lol, I saw that and imagined some old lady somewhere saying, "Flufter?", "Yoo-Hoo Flufter, come here you silly cat!" and him just soaring around as an R/C LOL. And back on topic, I might maiden my bush-plane on the 'snow' we get in Ohio whenever I get a charger and a brass sleeve.

Well I doubt I'll be flying today. Thanks Nemo!!

Just popped my garage door... There is a car under that.




Not sure where to start with this one!!! I can't get out my back door, snow is up too high. My front porch is covered and that is over 3ft off the ground.

This is going to be fun.

That cat thing is just sick man, it's bad enough stuffing your pet once it has passed away but to turn it into something like that, that's just wrong and I think he needs help to stop smokin that wacky backy!!!

Last time I experienced snow like that was the blizzard of 1965 outside D.C. Dave/zeezee, I was a kid and loved it

took my carbon cub outside for a flight of about 1:30. got sick of fighting the wind. Although it has as3x it still isn't the greatest plane around for fighting winds. Have no idea how I pulled off one of the best landings I've ever done with the CC, and it was a crosswind landing at that.

TR,

Looks like you guys got nailed pretty good. Hope the power stays on & you can dig out soon. We're supposed to get up to a foot tomorrow & Monday. I hope that's all we get.

BTW - that was some cool footage from your new quad. Quite the coincidence that you happened to be up & pointed in the right direction when the pigeons flew past.

Yes, it is very cool looking! Will get some quad footage tomorrow was still too windy today with the end of the Nor'Easter passing.
Declared state of emergency. Plows still have not gotten the roads. These's 2-4 feet of snow covering everything. I was able to dog my car out of the driveway, and we dug a walk path from front door to rode. Drifts over 5 feet deep.
My neighbor has a plow so he plowed just our road. I got excited when i got my car out, drove down the road only to realize that this is a stretch of about a quarter mile that is the only thing plowed!! I had to back down the road and back into my driveway. Nowhere to go. Can't tell where streets start and yards end. Awesome.

Here's a few more pics i took of the clear out:

Hopig to get out tomorrow.
