    Just remember, if it falls and hits it (wind and such), you're covered. If you do it, not so much.:deal

    That about sums up how I feel, not much use for snow. Now there is just that much less to melt when the real spring gets here..

    I've had training. Notch undercut, bridge hinge and escape route are terms I am very familiar with.

    That is painful to watch.

    Ohhhh c'mon. He needed a new porch on the cottage anyhow! You can plainly see that from the beginning...

    He just couldn't convince his wife any other way.
