    WOW did we get slammed last night. I have over two feet of snow and all the roads in Connecticut are closed. Very greatfull that we have not lost power as yet. Maybe a good time to put some heat onto my projects in the garage. Everyone else out there in the northeast come out OK

    I've been through similar situations like this storm. Stay safe and hope you are prepared. Last time we had high winds from a big storm, our power was out for 10 days. It gets old and narly after the first 12 hours!

    Hang tough up there in New England!

    I saw your weather forcast.

    Hope you have a shovel at the back door instead out of out at the shop.

    Here in seacoast NH we got about two feet of snow, hard to tell as winds really piled it up. Guess it will be a while yet before I can can get the hot rod out of storage. Only good thing was it was light and fluffy to shovel.

    Here in upstate New York most people are used to this. Besides the damaging ice storm in the 90's we still have not had a good snow storm like the ones we had in 66 or 72 when you got stranded for days. In the 50's and 60's people still used shovels and we had to walk to school. I think I remember it was uphill both ways.
    Last night and today we broke some records and now have the most beautiful blanket of white that will probably be gone on Monday when they are calling for warmer temps and rain.
    After clearing my driveway I pulled my cars out of the barn to run a little in the fresh air. As much as I enjoyed the beauty of the snow, after sitting behind the wheel of my cars, I guess I am now ready for spring.
    For those of you in areas harder hit, be patient and be safe.

    Just put 3 hours into clearing my walkway, driveway, and my neighbor's driveway (divorced lady w/3 daughters). About 30" all told. Problem is, the plows haven't even come down my street yet, so the road is completely impassable. Of course, when the plow does come, there'll be a 4ft berm at the end of my nice clean driveway.

    Such is life...

  23. That is beautiful but I'd rather look at it than be in it. Take care.
  24. heck we got a measly 4 inches of the white stuff
