Dang, that looks cold!

Looks like you need a snowplow and a salt spreader locomotive or just hope for a warm spell.

Sheesh, all that snow and in the Nevada desert, what'll happen next? Now up here the grape growers are complaining because of the lack of frost for the grape harvest, to make ice wine. AH! Well, wonder how long it'll be before this area turns to desert.

I think it would be fun to snowplow
Well if you would have been around here about 10 or 12 days ago we could have cured you of that :D

Cheers Willis
