The scanner is surprisingly quiet, usually when it ices or snows it's continuous calls for people driving into poles, ditches, each other, etc. I guess everyone wisely stayed home.

I've got about 2" so far but it is starting to changeover. It's 32°and climbing and the forecast a day ago was about 18", now down to 8" or so. They say RI won't get much at all.

Well it looks like it finally stopped at 22 inches. Snow plow tried to get through but couldn't make up the hill. He put it in reverse and backed down. Maybe tomorrow.

Yikes! We had a paltry 14 inches. I noticed two state plow trucks take about an hour to get up a steep, nearby hill. I managed to get completely dug out, then received the required 4 ft. of snow and ice deposited at the end on the driveway. by Penndot.

I know we got over 18",just not sure beyond that.I do know that at my age it was way too much shoveling,i am worn out tonite. Had 4' on 1 side of my house roof,drug my 16" 2 cycle snowblower up & worked a long time to remove that mess.Didn't make it onto the shop roof,too beat,maybe this crazy wind will now blow it off overnite. :)

Only 7 inches of wet snow here in Waynesboro. I'm glad I did the fan modification on my 2 stage snow blower. Blows wet snow without clogging up constantly. Increases the distance it will blow dry snow too.
