    Storm was a legit doozy. Crazy snow drifts. Difficult to say how much we actually got with all the wind blowing it around though. Probably high 20s. Couple of post storm picks. That drift up to my front door was a major pain to get dug out, even if only partially. Spent 5 hrs out there today.

    Couple feet or more here. Brother and I got the place cleared out mostly with snowblower and shovels. Layout of house/ garage doesn't leave much room to be able to use the plow but glad we are done that wasn't fun. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Sigh....... If only I could've gotten paid for asking stoopid questions all those years. I guess it's our fault though, we watch their drivel. A C

    I took more damage with this storm that with Sandy and Irene combined. I've lost some tree limbs due to the weight of the snow. I'll post some pics tomorrow.

    Not to defend over zealous employers, but there was a huge difference from the north shore snow fall to the south shore. If you were on the south shore all day you had no idea that the north shore was getting a shellacking. I left Westhampton (east end south shore) to get to my house yesterday at 4:00pm. Westhampton had just started to snow. It took me an hour and a half to get 30 miles. When I got home my house (north shore) had 6 inches and Westhampton was still snow/sleet/rain. So there was a big difference from one side of the island to the other.

    I should have left work earlier. I was fortunate to make it home. Actually, I made it 30 miles and couldn't get in my driveway, so I parked in my neighbor's driveway. All of this in a Toyota Echo, by the way. Terrible in all weather conditions. Great on gas ;).

    The Walmart pics on Route 25 blow my mind. I had people cutting me off in little cars, then sitting there spinning their wheels........ amazing.

    I was in high 4.

    I was wondering where Ray was the past 2 days. He is closer to the south coast, so he took it on the chin I'm sure. Glad he is ok.

    I was wondering about Ray also. South shore got slammed with the power issues, especially Plymouth and Quincy. Glad they are ok.

    Truck is empty, the rental company gave them 2 extra days, gratis. Huge branch came down on her car and dented the roof. Waiting for pics, their cable is out so no internet.

    Awaiting my hero, he's doing his drive way now.

    Kudos to the rental company, but not so for the branch. They won't forget this move any time soon. I think the guys with the plows are saints after a big snow like this. My SIL is waiting for her knight to show up too.

    Got power back here this morning.
    Got about 17 inches. It rained for a while so the bottom 6 inches is slush and super heavy.
    I don't mind the deep stuff, although I do less damage with the snow thrower.

    Dozens of trees down, mostly pines uprooted.

    Had a overflowing burn pot of pellets. turned it down, draft wide open, still piled up. Shut it down, and the pellets burned up. Got my backside dressed and made my way out to the back side of the house through the snow difts. Found the Outside air obstructed with snow. First time ever! Cleaned that out then did the leaf blower trick. Ugh! now nice snake's tongue fire. Glad I didn't wait longer to ck on it.

    Hows everyone in Northeast? Safe I hope. Was in Pa skiing during the storm. Made the drive home today and started digging out. My area had some of the highest totals (28" +). It's not good. Driveway is 120'. A house a few miles south collapsed, people got out ok but total loss. Scary stuff, oh and have not seen a plow. They closed 26 miles of the Long Island Expressway today to try and make it passable, sheesh.

    Hey Beer Belly, we have almost the same house.
