    OK, so I'll start a photo thread and we can all add before and after pictures of hte storm.

    This is where I am :)

    In here is my house before the storm, taken around 7:30am Friday. I'll try to add some halfway shots this afternoon and aftermath shots tomorrow.

    So now they are saying this might be the biggest since the Blizzard of 2005. I found an old picture from that storm, I lived in Waltham (10mi from Boston) back then.

    Some of my stacks.
    They are under pine trees, so the snow doesn't accumulate too well at onset, but we shall see.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say we are not going to get nearly as much as projected. I was in a 16-26" range earlier, and I don't even think we have 1" yet. I know that there are many hours left ot this storm, but just have a funny feeling its not going to pan our with the 2 feet of snow for us as projected. On another note, my pot roast in the crock pot is almost done...yummy :)

    We still do not have as much snow as they were saying, but it appears to be getting worse now. !!! The snow is falling harder and the wind is blowing harder.

    Looking at the picture you took with the dog behind the glass, it looks like you are wearing some girly Ugg boots:

    Stay safe Jeremy, Defiant, and all of you in the path of that monster. I have just one thing to say.......I'M JEALOUS!
    I was supposed to go to Allentown tomorrow morning to pick up my floor (antique heart pine) for my living room. Looks like that is off, gonna be a mess out that way, too!
    Hoping we get what they are calling for us to get here (1 to 3"), but it's mostly rain right now. I'm hoping to get a couple loads of wood off the farm with the snowmobile tomorrow morning......

    Thanks Scotty, winds are going to whip up and tide will be 4-6' above normal this evening. Just got out of the hot tub with the wife and preparing our favorite scallops and clam pasta. I was just out in my boat this past Wed and got them.:cool:

    I said it was hard to tell how much snow we got because of the wind. Thought we only had around six to seven by now. Wrong! I just measured this. If it is tough to see it is 11". Getting to dark , but pics tomorrow. Snow still coming down at a good rate!

    Snow coming down real hard now, roads are empty. About 3 to 4 of the dense stuff. Wife made us snickerdoodles and homemade coco after lunch and I had dinner duty, meatballs and pasta. Now its just the wait to see what we have come morning... Kids are bouncing off the walls.

    Snow update---- Just got off the phone with a friend who lives in Northern Tip of Newfoundland. He said that since early this morning the snow has been nearly waist high and is still falling. The temperature is dropping way below zero and the north wind is increasing to near gale force. His wife has done nothing but look through the kitchen window and just stare. He says that if it gets much worse, he may have to let her in.

    Was out playing with the kids - only about 6" here so far... but falling fast.

    Decided to roast some marshmallows while we were out there. Took two 1/4s of a SC to get the fire going as the wind was blowing snow as I was getting it going and the sticks were wet and/or iced over.

    I like winter :)

    Coming down fast and hard here, got about 8-9 inches right now, and it isnt supposed to get bad until 9pm. I just went outside and shook the snow off some of the smaller bushes / trees so they arent ruined. My power line from the pole to the house has got some snow sticking to it...hope we dont lose that line, the woodstove has been going strong since 2pm it is a toasty 75 upstairs right now. Some pics off my back deck
