    Thankfully we didn't lose power. Got 27.5 inches here in central Mass but it's drifted halfway up my doors and windows. Spent 4 hours snowblowing the driveway. Sucks when the snow is higher than the chute on the snowblower! Gotta go back out and do the roofs now.
  6. About a foot here in NJ just 8 miles outside NYC.

    Middleport, NY we got around 14-16 of the white fluffy stuff.

    Yes winters are long and cold and the cruisin season is shortened but I will always take the snow over Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Tsunamis, Forest Fires and earth quakes. Or even the extreme heat most see in the summer months.

    Best thing to do is sit inside with family and watch it melt.

    Stay safe out there to those without power on the coast.
  8. 27" by me in Islip Town... they do an unfuckingbelievably horrid job with the plows. They came by at some point last night. Snow was 18" up on my front storm door glass, a 4' drift on my deck.

    I was out from 10:30 this morning to 3:30 with my boys shoveling and snowblowing. I blow it way out into the street, the plow came by about 2:30 and my method works.. no pile to deal with.

    Ray, I'll be thinking of you as we are on our way (finally!) to Florida. My Pontiac is in the tent in the back yard which is now inaccessible because of the snow. The Dodge is at an offsite storage facility... so I went and sat in the Caddy as it is the only car I have access to. Can't wait for the rite of Spring when us North Easterners finally get to break their cars out of winter jail...

    The storm is starting to wind down hear in New Brunswick. Not as much snow as in New England but lots of wind. I spent the afternoon in garage, welding the frame on my 32, listening to the wind howl all day.

    I had my son come by and blow it, he does the same thing for the most part, some up on the lawn, but he was doing it at 7:00 this morning and the plow was coming down the block and he actually waited for him. It was a 2500 pick up not the big town trucks, but I still had to shovel out from the house and down the driveway because I had two cars parked up front.Just getting out the door was a pain because I had to keep using the door and pushing, then it would pack, eventually I could get my arm out the door and was able to push some then the shovel and then I was out.I was supposed to go up to Huntington today to help my buddy see what was worth keeping in the barn. Always next weekend.

    Blizzard warning here in Northern Minnesota starting 6 a.m. Sunday morning. Some 12 or so inches predicted, but the winds are going to howl, and here in the flatlands of the Red River Valley that means trouble. Be safe, everyone, everywhere.

    i just got in about an hour ago, been out since 8 this morning. my little s-10 blazer plow truck didn't fair so well in the 4-5 drifts in my driveway. went about 4 feet and got stuck! had to call my buddy around the corner to come over with his payloader to help me out. saved the day, cleared the drive enough for me to finish it up. been shoveling with the wife and kid all day, i'm fuckin shot! now if they'll just finish the street i can take it to the shop to put a new clutch in it!

    Tough to tell how much snow cuz of the drifting...I'd guess 27-30". Luckily never lost power here un-like those folks near the coast where the snow was wet and heavy. On the south shore they had winds as high as 86 mph.



    Drift about 5ft. deep on my back deck !!!

    We're in the center corridor of the state. Numbers reported range from 30 to 36 inches. 36 inches to start. Drifts are easily 4 to 5 feet. So much snow and no place to put it. I was here for the 78 blizzard in Ct. That was a two day storm. This thing was a monster that dropped more snow in a shorter time. Amazing!
  30. The town came by with one of their big trucks, all they had to do was make 1 more pass... slackers. I have a big driveway and parked 3 of our cars on one side of it. We had to go out the back door, front one is glass and couldn't push on that. I was supposed to go up to Huntington last night too, wound up on the couch with the remote.

    10* here today, glad we got it done yesterday.
