Pictures from SNOWPOCALYPSE

Took some pictures of SNOWMAGEDDON to share:

Here's a couple quick "before and after" shots, with the "before" shots taken early yesterday afternoon and "after" taken this morning:

Here's BabyGirl G. after a few minutes out playing in the snow:


Round three of snow removal will happen after lunch...

That is all.

Jay! You're Alive! Thank God!

How'd the Bacon Supply hold out?

I think I would have to find an excuse to go 4 wheeling in that.

Thats nothing! Lived in South Hadley Falls in 1960, and we had 48" in <24 hours with drifts to 20'. Out of school one day. Roads were snow packed for a month. What's the big deal about Nemo?

lesseee..

4wheeling would be fun but the $500fine and 1year threat takes out the fun. Heavy handed but they were trying to avoid Blizzard of 78 where people abandoned cars on the road and made cleanup a mess.

Closer to the coast its went heavy stuff. further out fluffy and very drifty.

Big deal is here 8in is a snow day and 20+ is in the books as top 10.
To people from Buffalo NY this is barely lake effect. depends where you are and what the area can clear. Cities like Boston have to move snow like this as there is limited places to push it to. Out here we have room.

Stay safe everyone. Clear ALL vents and exhaust pipes as CO (carbon monoxide) KILLS.

I measured 17 inches here in southern NH. Perhaps we had more. Rather nice this afternoon here. Has your Governor allowed you on the road again?

Here on the balmy shores of Lake Ontario we have about 14 inches of mostly dry snow. It's not the heart attack snow you folks got nearer the cost.

I'm glad I have a snowblower but I'll rot in hell before I buy another Troy-Bilt. It has electric start, which is nice. But it also has (had) a plastic key (really just a peg) that has to be inserted for it to run. That key is probably in Jay's driveway by now. I had to wedge a couple pieces of tongue depressor in the hole to get the machine to start.

That kind of snowfall happens at least once pretty much every winter where I'm from. The only time I can ever really remember transports breaking down was when one city had 5 feet of snow in two days of continuous snowfall.

Here, all major roads would have been plowed before the morning traffic to work got started...

Jay,
Last night I scraped about 6" from my deck, plus another 18 or 20 a little while ago. The front walk and stairs await me, and they mock me.

just thought you should know, and i know you were all worried about me. sadly the snowmagedon did not make it all the way to Hawaii, and its still in the upper 70's i might even go to the beach on sunday. Dont worry i am warm enough for all of you all in the snow storm to end all snow storms.

It could be worse... :-)

Finally, backin the house @ 1645; road is passable.
That damn driveway...

and this is why I've lived my entire life in the south.

3ft here, 80mph winds last night made for drifts 10ft or higher.
May take awhile to dig outta this one.

All we got was 60 mph wind and blowing dirt/dust/sand. You guys have all the luck. (No, seriously, we need moisture.)
