  1. *Not sure if this is allowed in the forum so Mods please move if incorrect... After recently coming back from my 5th trip(1st in the summer/ non snowmobile related) in 11 yrs to the Teton area, I'm strongly considering a move to the W. WYO/ E. Idaho (about 1hr either side of the border) or perhaps W. Yellowstone/S. Montana area. I'd like to narrow down some areas in each state for the Gf and I to look around at. Im just getting my feet wet on this idea, this is probably 1-2yrs down the rd. Schools/education are of no concern, no kids and dont want kids. Not particularity religious. Im a local cdl A driver, though a move out there I would likely change careers. Probably something in the heavy equipment sector(pay loader/excavator at a gravel pit/ private construction or something) I do have some experience, no interest in the oil fields or on a rd crew however. She would be looking for something with wildlife. Whether it be at a zoo or working with animals in some capacity (not an officer/game warden/ ranger though) Im curious on the tax situation in these areas? I know there's no income tax in Wy, but killing time looking at real estate I see 2 million dollar 4500sq ft homes paying less in taxes (5200) than i do for my 160,000 home 1950 sqft (6400ish) Am I missing something here with property taxes? Taxes for houses in our range appear to only be in the 1500-2000/yr. Our housing budget would likely be in the 200-350K range. Ive been told there is some hefty vehicle tax fees in wy?? What other pro/cons should we be aware of? Coming from NY we are familar to cold/snow though I suspect these areas see more extended periods of extreme cold than we might be use to. We usually get 2-3 days below zero/ single digit highs and 1-2 nights -10/-15 lows per yr. I appreciate any and all info.
  2. Haha, I knew it...use to cut up peck to cty route 2 then up into redfield to snowmobile... dumped a few loads of salt at the county barn to
  3. First photo taken at the corner of peck/centerville by the county barn, right??
  4. Steady snow here since right 730-800am, just waiting for flake to increase....
  5. Is there any concern with the southern convection robbing moisture from streaming northward?
  6. Can anyone with any expertise in reading maps give me some advice. I need to take 3 days off from work to get some weather sensitive work done outside. Basically can’t rain or drop below 50 Ive been given the option of oct:3,4,5 or oct 10,11,12... either period looking better than the other or do I just throw a dart at a calendar?? thanks
  7. Am I mis-remembering or wasn’t there summer forecasts calling for slightly cooler to average and about average for rain??
  8. Yea,that'd be great... just like last week when the high winds would be cool so I could have equipment get damaged and be with out power for 3 days... yes an ice storm would be just swell...
  9. You know I'd be more on board for this event if I thought they'd plow the roads when it snows, but for many depts plowing this year has been seemingly of little importance. So for someone who puts down 400-500 miles a day, just rain will be fine.
  10. Reasonable assumption, but I don't have a thick layer of blubber to insulate me nor do the pipes in my house for days on end
  11. Please no....mid teens-20s-30sfine but this below zero to single digits for more than a day crap can stay in Canada
  12. Do you have a link for this? I have to travel quite a bit for work between Syracuse and Watertown now so itd be a nice to have... when it works... also for Syracuse area posters, any good links for traffic accidents, webcams for the i81 corridor? Had a front row seat to a 8-10 car pileup just north of parish early this afternoon
