    I can't really get a good picture, too dark out, but we are in white out now. Probably over 6 inches and a big plow drift out front.

    Okay, no idea why video did not attach. Do they usually take forever? It did the compression thing and then nothing happened?

    Its too dark for pictures but it didn't do anything but sleet all day here. Snow started about 7 and the plows have been by a few times already. We are suppose to get 8-10" but unless a really heavy band of snow gets stuck over us, I don't see it happening. We are worried more about high winds from the north, as we are buffered east/west by the cliffs in PA and across the river in NJ. North/south winds race through here in the valley and it's usually when it's bad. Stove is loaded, plenty of wood, gas for the generator, fingers crossed the power stays on.
    Be safe everyone!

    Storm started lame, but has really picked up. Tractor plow is done, I'll have to shovel some tomorrow. Just got over 10 inches in 90 minutes here.

    Hard to tell, there is a lot of drifting. That neighbors roof is blown clear, but its drifted waist deep by my back door. I'd guess overall around 2 ft.

    Lots of drifting here, hard to tell actual depth. I'd say 18" - 20". Not too bad, looks like 3-4 more hours to go. Winds were not that bad here either.

    The plan is to shovel in increments. Next door neighbor will be by sometime with the plow.

    My stacks and wheel barrow

    You lucky buggers!:eek:
    I'm VERY JEALOUS!!:mad:

    That being said, you all be careful with that snow. Don't overdue it when shoveling/wrestling wood into the house. I know, I sound like my parents, but I am being sincere. While it's beautiful to see a storm like that, it also means a hell of a lot of work.......

    Thanks for the pics everybody, stay warm and safe. And keep updating us.

    Classic Nor'easter. View out the bedroom window on the porch roof. That is a yard stick. Crap.

    IMG_2897.JPG

    View out the basement door on the lee side of the house. Glad I brought the wood in on Wednesday. Power is on, so not so bad. Light and fluffy. Note to self, bring the snowblower up on the enclosed porch next time.

    Here's a pretty good before/after from the Lower Hudson Valley. I'd say we got about a foot.

    We got off easy, all the snow we received was light and fluffy, not much wind in our area.
