Ohhhh, Nemo be cranking now. I'm guessing 2 to 3 inches an hour. The snow plow just went by. Judging by what he piled up I'll guess we've gotten 8 or 10 inches so far. It's 8 degrees and very windy. No wet snow here, not yet at least.

19" and counting here. Power holding well. My guess is about 25" when all said and done. High tide coming in a bit. That should be touchy with this Norwest wind.
My nephew in Portland says 30" and counting down there! Wow. Nice light snow though. Got a 53mph gust on the wind gauge.

Some potting shed pictures of NEMO snow. I have got to think Spring. It's just around the corner.

The cape got 10-12 inches...
if it were dri snow about 35-40 inches...
the first snow compress to about 4 inches and froze...
the next layer was almost as wet but had a bit more air...
SNOWCRETE... :mad:
the last bit was normal snow...
made some nice drifts...
with the 60-78 mph winds...
Most of the cape lost power...
our went out friday night 10:30...
came back Sunday about 3 pm...
Too windy to deal with the genny...
Coal stove saved the day...
my tennant has an old style natural gas floor furnace...
and natural vent wayer heater...
Heat and hotwater and stove...
She was telling her no power no heat friends how good she had it...
it was magic that it still worked...
I told her the house was setup for storms on purpose...

Glad to see you back home and still kickin after that surgery CC. Just in time for the Nor'E.

Got to tell you guys the back of legs, calves I guess you'd say are sore as all get out this morning after "helping" the old snowblower cut through the couple feet of snow. Sheesh! I was coming downstairs and me knees and calves were reminding me that I ain't a spring chicken no more (and ain't been for some time ;) ). I gots to get in shape! Everythings sore and creaky this morning. Sucks getting old.
