This is the wildest I've ever seen it in my life. I usually try to snow blow the driveway about halfway through a deep snow but I think it would be pointless with the wind. Just have to wait it out.

YIKES!!! Now I have a real emergency. The ride home last night was hairy to say the least and I didn't want to make any stops. Now I see I only have 7 beers in the fridge. :shock: Poor planning on my part.
Come on over Coalkirk I have plenty of beer. It keeps changing from snow to freezing rain to rain and back again. Now it's snowing.

Samler17, if you have any RainX for a windshield that keeps the dish real clean, just on the dish part. Pam cooking spray is good also but idealy it should be dry for either.

It finally stopped snowing. Here are some pictures taken just a while ago. The wind picked up and boy is it nasty outside. I guess we ended up with about 40 inches all together. Stay warm, Lisa

Looks like we got another 20 inches atop the 28 inches from the weekend storm. Both measured in my back yard. Definitely a record snowstorm for this area. Hard to tell if it's still snowing. Lots of blowing snow. Winds are expected to continue into tomorrow. Hope the electric stays on. I have a generator but getting to it will require lots of shoveling. Maybe it's time to hook up the automatic transfer switch. I never considered how hard it might be in getting to the generator in an emergency. Cleaning up will be a bitch. Just not many places left to push the snow. That will mean carrying endless loader bucket full. Oh well, at least the tractor cab is heated. I'll post pictures tomorrow. Looks like southeastern PA and NJ is next to be pounded. Calling for the possibility of another storm next weekend. Enough already.

It's a good news - bad news kinda thing......

What hurricane Floyd couldn't destroy in 1999, the blizzard of 2010 finished off on Wednesday. I was outside shoveling when I heard a loud crack that turned out to be the main beam in the roof. I was barely able to drive the old Ford clear of the doorway before it got stuck in the snow, so it survived without a scratch.
I had been planning on tearing the old garage down, but just never got around to it, so....

The good news is that now I don't have to figure out how to get up to the roof to tear it down,

The bad news is that my coal pile is under there,

The good news is that I found the coal pile today and it is just covered with snow and no debris,

The bad news is that it'll be a lot harder carrying out the buckets of coal over the pile of debris surrounding the coal pile.

Holy crap!! :shock: That sucks!! :o

But like I always say, it could always be worse ... and it usually is! At least the car was out, so it won't cost you anything. On the bright side, you've got plenty of firewood for a summer party! 8-)



This storm has made our weather people look like complete dipshits. They pumped this thing up so bad ... you'd think we would be getting what Lisa & Yanche got. We got a whopping 3/8ths of an inch!! :lol: My buddy lost a days pay due to this royal screw-up. His work cancelled his shift!

My driveway self-plowed itself today with temps hitting 38° for the high. Feels like spring is coming!
