    It hasn't stopped here yet! Probably only an inch or so since lunchtime, but its still coming down. I got some pictures of the snow, I'll upload them later. We're heading to my inlaws place to celebrate Christmas with them. They live over the ridge from our place, FIL had to work Christmas day so we are having their Christmas this evening.....

    Tomorrow morning I'll be cutting some wood on the ridge. Several years' worth blew over during Sandy, I'll be stocking up. Couple of saw logs up there too, just need to figure out how to get them home!

    If I feel I can make it back up my driveway (getting out it easy) I am going to be splitting some red oak cut a few weeks back with my cutting/burning buddy. I have to help as much as I can as I have no vehicle to transport scrounges yet. I can't see the roads from my abode.

    Yes, I know! He is a broken coat Jack Russell but I don't thin his coat out too much in the winter as now that he's older, he doesn't like the cold too much. We tell people he is a rare breed "Bucks County Sheep Dog" every now and then to give ourselves a giggle. Even if you aren't familiar with the JRT breed, when he's awake, there is no mistaking that is what he is :)

    Im looking forward to these colder temps. Its 30 Deg out & windy but forcast to get much colder over the next 5 days with overnights down to 12. House is still too warm about 80+ on the floor above the stove. Stove set to the lowest air setting.

    Storm is building very slowly... So far just flurries. They tell us we are going to get the bulk of accumulation tonight during the 7pm to 11pm window as the rate hits 2 or 3 inches per hour.

    Stove is cooking along nicely, dinner in the oven, beer in the fridge, gas in the ariens :)

    Snow should be ending in the next hour or so here. About 8 inches on the day.

    Just finished up shoveling the roof off about 20 mins ago and finished the driveway / paths w/ the snow blower as well.

    Just downed one rum and coke, wasn't summer-y enough, switching to gin and tonic.

    Possibly I had this trouble with my Ariens and if the thrower was fed too much snow it would stop causing a jam if I fed it too much snow. After adjusting the idler pulley to place more tension on idler pulley both problems went away..
