Very nice Jim. The vegetation is very realistic and I love the deflection of the running gear and tracks.

How's the weather out your way now, still snowing?

Nice one Jim!!! :smiling:

One Elefant hiding in the bush, waiting for the communist bananas to appear on the horizon and to pluck them one by one... :tongue-out:

Once again excellent usage of nature's diorama supplies!
As soon as it gets warmer here in spring I shall begin collecting more supplies myself and prepare them so I can use them throughout the winter.
It bothers me that now, when I need all these resources, they're either under snow or not accessible due to miserable weather, but just raiding some old flower pots I managed to do quite a lot!

I hope the weather's been kinder to you and that the worst part is over?

Cheers,
Jens

Thanks Bob, still snowing:rolling: in the middle of a pretty good storm as we speak but it's a fast mover so we should only get 8 or 10 inches this time but the snow machine freight train
is just getting cranked up I'm afraid.
We try to take it all with a grain of salt and a shot of vodka :smirk:

We've accumulated over 5ft already and winter is not even half over. We try to keep others plowed out but we're getting to the point where there's nowhere to push it any more. Too dangerous to try to trailer haul loader and many are too far to actually drive loader to them.

Many know the dangers of not having proper equipment to handle this sort of weather and yet they will waste money on frivolous things all year and then cry to me when
they get inundated:tired:.

Thank you Jens and thank you for your concern, mercifully the brutal temps have retreated back into Canada for now but they did push the moisture out to sea for the most part.
So although insanely cold we got little snow under this Artic vortex.

But man! give me the snow any day! We know how to deal with it, but when it gets so cold that you actually start thinking in survival mode....that's TOO cold:flushed:
