After the storm: Left is across the road, right south side our house and bottom after some banjo work.

I think if the winds had been from the west a lot more banjo work would have been required in the front of house. In years past the ski doo has been totally buried and snow drifts covered the living room window.

Happy New Year to you and your family. May 2012 be full of happiness and good health..... and stay warm with all those whistling winds sweeping around the house!

Happy New Year from us, sitting around listening to the cicadas gently chirruping away in the background (or whatever that noise is called that cicadas make? ;)) Nice warm sunny day, not too hot. How strange is it that this kind of weather rates a mention for January in Sydney!

And now I need to ask - what relationship a banjo has to clearing snow?

Cheers, little sis.

All the best for the new year Shammy.

Banjo is a term used in the hard yakka community, usually to tease new comers to the trade, it refers to a shovel.
You would be amazed how many get very confused when some bloke asks the new guy to go get a banjo and dig that trench.
Then again maybe it is not used these days what with all the mechanical large and small machines.

I am 100 per cent certain that I go the banjo expression from the owner of this blog, who once noted that there had been a drift in front of my door for some weeks. The problem was that I actually do play the banjo and it seemed like a good excuse to avoid any undue work. - OBT
