Yes and it looks like it's going to stay until next weekend. Best to get it shoveled now before it freezes. Hope we don't have to sand bag in the spring. Nice to have the good water supply though.
Did my first ever Astronomy Talk with Pics (though I'm talking alll the time) it went quite well except it took an hour with questions instead of the hoped for half hour. Just put the pics on a memory stick and my friend put it into his laptop and we plugged that into his big TV. No need for powerpoint -- windows 10 is such a incompetent pain these days.

Lots of snow here too, but it's the wind that has been steady all day. No use shoveling til the wind backs down a notch. This is the most snow I have seen in Mission, ever.
DSD, as for Win 10 maybe i can help. I am running the latest version and everything works. But it does take a bit of tweaking to get it to run power point, which in itself is redundant.
For you guys that don't update, good luck. You are compromising your own cyber safety. Kinda reminds me of the days when seat-belts came in. All my tough friends refused to wear them. Most of are dead,no kidding. The latest operating system is a good place to start.
On a much lighter note, I got a nice sheet of Baltic Birch in a 5x5 sheet.The nice salesman at Windsor Plywood saw my nice FVAS Vest I was wearing and gave me a nice discount on the wood and a new saw blade. Now I have everything I need to complete my base. Spring will be here soon enough.
