    Does anyone stack their wood close to the stove as to warm it to facilitate drying?

    Maps be showin 23" in some places. I think that the stars have to align for that one, but may be snow blowin' twice. I'm supposed to cut/move/stack kiln wood, and stack the kiln this weekend. Should be really fun.

    It's like Camelot here. The rain and leaves fall strategically onto my garden, providing water and mulch; the squirrels fall strategically out of the trees onto the driveway, providing a laugh.

    Nobody gets snowed in more than a day, but they all make a stupid run on the grocery store.

    Model generated totals...These could be low.

    [​IMG]

    BUT.....GFS has wind gusts to 70 at Boston. A strong Noreaster.
    If you are in eastern MA, get fuel for the generator.

    ETA: Caution....high bust potential with this type of storm. (i.e. might not happen) but watch the next 24 hours. If it's still on so many models....polish up that shovel.

    I've only used my 2 stage snowblower once in the last 2 years but it looks like it will be getting used this storm. I'm in the 14" - 18" zone as well. Might give the single stage a shot if I can get out there before it gets too deep. I love the light weight and maneuverability that the single stage offers over the 2 stage.

    OK, I'll stop cluttering up the thread after this one. Models still holding the storm, but for eastern MA, I think the thing is the strength of the noreaster more than the depth of the snow. Could be an historic storm for Boston.
    I'm serious about those gensets boys. One or 2 more runs like this and you should be buying gas and stacking wood:

    I can remember getting 9" in one storm followed by 24" a couple days after. Living on a remote road in the Berkshires, I didn't get out for several days. And I should have stayed inside. That's when the Barracuda got a nose job.

    My friend had an old Jeep CJ3B which we stuck in about 2' of snow when the clutch linkage broke during the storm. Had to abandon her and hike home. Cold and tiring.
    Picture for the younger folks (his didn't have chrome but the tires are right):

    Do you have a wind map for the same area? The places I've checked are all over the map.

    Sorry Zap, I've been offline for a while.
    I find wind hard to model because it does not accumulate. It is here-and-gone. But...
