Beautiful view you have there. Shoveling snow is not one of my more favorite things to do. But I love looking at it when it is freshly fallen and glistening in the sun.

Well Todd, if you can send the view with the weather I'll take them both. I use to love shoveling but now the snow thrower is my ticket. Of course it's still hidden in the shed and at this point in the game I'd like to keep it there.

It's a nice view and the fresh snow is nice you look at but when you got about a 200 foot walk way to shovel it gets hard on the back after 3 times in less then 6 hours or so give or take. But gotta love it.

Sorry Dan you can't have the view but you certainly can have the weather.

Didn't get snow, been beautiful for the past 7 days or so, today we had Sleet, rain, cold north wind.  Mother Nature just letting us know, it ain't over until it is over.  But this was two days ago, in my neighbors field just below our house.

ODE TO SHEILA- By Chris Murphy

Sheila will come
and Sheila will go

Along the way, expect rain, ice
and certainly some snow.

And it's a foregone conclusion
that the wind is gonna blow.

So why does Sheila's Brush
come around every St. Patrick's Day or so?

It's because Sheila loves Newfoundland
don't you know.

But once Sheila's gone...
Spring is soon to show.

We have been fortunate here with lack of snow, but on the first day of spring, we got hail, thunderstorms, high winds and sun--all in about four hours.

That harbor is just the ticket to see!

Todd, if you own the rights to the third picture, would you please e-mail me a copy of it? It would make a beautiful picture puzzle, and I might try to get it made into one. If you would rather not share it with me, that's fine.

Will I never took the picture myself but when I seen the picture I asked my friend could I use it for projects and he told me to go ahead and use all that I want.so I don't know if that counts for having the rights to it or not.
