  1. And here comes the sun. That was some intense rain and wind but only lasted a few minutes
  2. Sitting in my car near Lowes island. Car is blowing, it's pouring and car is being hit w hail
  3. Deck advice - our deck on new house probably hasn't been touched in over 10 years. It was a mess. This weekend we power washed it and took out most of the grunge, dirt and old stain remnants but now wondering if we should also wash and brighten or if that is a waste of time. There was definitely still some mildew evident when wet but looked ok once dry. I am thinking if we are going through this effort to strip it all down we should do it right but it's about 1,000 SF so no small undertaking to take on extra steps. We were thinking just sanding might be enough to remove the last bit of dirt. Also would you sand before/after the cleaning/brightening? Will it be ok if we clean/sand etc but don't get to staining for a few more weeks? Since we only have weekends trying to find a dry one has been challenging. Any stain preferences? Thinking about Defy. Thanks
  4. I found a couple this year already....but probably not enough
  5. Dark and pouring in Sterling at noon but now the sun is starting to pop out
  6. In Canaan...wet snow and ground is starting to cave. Deck all white but everything else just still wet. Will be happy with snow falling all day tomorrow and playing outside w dog in the snow...he loves it.
  7. We've missed every good storm at our place in Canaan this year...I just want one good storm with snow blowing everywhere and I'm happy to bring on spring.
  8. The low temps are due to Frost Hollows. But it's still cold! The breaker on our hot tub flipped so it froze...what a mess
  9. It's a bluebird day at Timberline. Didn't feel as cold last night as some of the reports said it was.
  10. Finally made it to Canaan. Left at 7am and made it around 11 but we stopped a couple of times and got hung by the below. We could barely see Timberline from the road when we drove by - snow blowing everywhere. Eyeing about 12" on the deck - will measure and post some pics later. As we were getting off 48 onto 32 we had to wait for a jeep to get pulled out. Looks like they came off 48 too fast and slide right across 32 into the woods. Looked like a bunch of young guys who probably came up to enjoy some fresh powder - bummer. Other friends of ours also drove up last night and made it to their rental house but couldn't get in the driveway. One SUIV ended up in a ditch but they got it out this morning.
  11. Our friends were just west of Moorefield - easily said 6 or 7 inches and the rates were insane. Up until Wardensville not much of anything but when it hit, it hit hard,
  12. we've driven through some wicked weather before but this was probably too much - especially with a 12 year old. There will be others....
  13. we killed trying to get out to Canaan tonight - our friends who were over an hour ahead of us said trucks and cars were all over 48 including one semi sideways into a hill. They were lucky to get behind a plow but still can't see anything - said it's the worse they have ever seen it. I was looking forward to the hot tub while it was puking snow for our first storm in the new house - but we'll have to wait until the next one What really sucks is our internet is down up there so we can't even watch the snow piling up on the cameras....snow will be still be there tomorrow....
  14. we have 4 wheel drive and both from New England - we will take it slow. we've been going out there for years so know what's ahead
  15. Just packed the car - screw it - I don't care how dicey the drive is, we are heading out to Canaan. I am not missing this
