Have 5 second vid of Heavy Snowfall here! We're getting covered up! Greenhouse has been flattened by steep house roof shedding a couple TONS of snow. Vid has unapproved extension...
I feel ya HL. We’re due for a dusting of 4-8 Tuesday night into Wednesday.
It’s been cold but not much snow this winter. Mostly brown with small patches of dirty white.
Everything has either gone north or south of us so far.

At 50 seconds in does it look like one of them has his finger in the trigger guard?
Looks likevthe guy on the left side of screen, the lefty. He then puts the muzzle in the small of the guys back that comes out of the door and with his finger on the trigger let's go of the foregrip and almost loses control of the rifle. Round could've gone off right there...

Senate has uncovered no direct evidence of conspiracy between Russia and Trump campaign

After two years and 200 interviews, the Senate Intelligence Committee is approaching the end of its investigation into the 2016 election, having uncovered no direct evidence of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia, according to both Democrats and Republicans on the committee.

But investigators disagree along party lines when it comes to the implications of a pattern of contacts they have documented between Trump associates and Russians — contacts that occurred before, during and after Russian intelligence operatives were seeking to help Donald Trump by leaking hacked Democratic emails and attacking his opponent, Hillary Clinton, on social media.

"If we write a report based upon the facts that we have, then we don't have anything that would suggest there was collusion by the Trump campaign and Russia," said Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, in an interview with CBS News last week.

Burr was careful to note that more facts may yet be uncovered, but he also made clear that the investigation was nearing an end.

It seemed like a hoax from the start.

I’ve seen guys beat by a group. He didn’t have the damage. Not even close.
This country has enough trouble and tension. Without folks making stuff up.

But he’s Hollywood, so at best, he’ll get a slap on hte wrist.
If there is no hate then manufacture it.
After that turn around and accuse those denying it of the same.
That is getting old and tired as people see it for what it really is.
Never bought that story for an instant.

Excerpt;
A record 7 million Americans are 90 days or more behind on their auto loan payments, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York reported Tuesday, even more than during the wake of the financial crisis era.

Economists warn this is a red flag. Despite the strong economy and low unemployment rate, many Americans are struggling to pay their bills.
