    You guys are a bunch of nut cases.

    My kind of people..... :)

    May the snow be heavy (or light if you don't like snow), the house stay warm and the beer stay cold.

    Anyway, snow is really coming down now (8:30pm)....pic really doesn't show it. I guessing about 6-7" on the ground. I'll be taking the dog out soon, so I'll check:

    Lets just say I'm hearing thunder and its not from outside! After thunder comes a flash and the lights go out. I'll get to clean the mess when I wake up! ;em

    Oh wait it is from outside. We got snow thunder. Haven't heard that in a while. You know who went to bed early! ::-) I'll try bribing the kid to take a pic. I can't see to straight!

    We got just about nothin here 1" sloppy wet snow and the forecast keeps backin up from the original 4-8" be lucky if we get 2-3 by morning. I did get a case of ale just in case i was snowed in,although the beer dist is only a about 300 Ft from my house. (That should increase my resale value). Id like to move a little closer.

    Getting a kick out of following you drunks on this thread....it's like we are all getting sloshed together. After a couple porters,,,bottle of white wine with dinner and sambuca with espresso after......took a little stroll out to the middle of the lake...snow thick and windblown and the wind was howling pretty good out in the middle of the lake.

    Update from the last pic above: I took the dog for a stroll, and out in the middle of the driveway, away from the house, I got 7" (at about 9:30).

    You can't tell from the photo, but we're fast approaching a foot of nice, IMG_7733.JPG dry snow here in Exeter. 15°F outside. 68° where I'm currently sitting.

    No idea of the exact amount so far, it's blowing so hard the drifts are 3-4 feet.

    These used to be my back steps:

    They're showing a band of 4-5 inch per hour snow going through my location along the I91 corridor in central CT right now. This is just crazy!!

    Hello

    11:30 PM Now and over 300,00 homes south of Boston without power!

    The entire city of Quincy Mass has no power. That is over 100,00 right there!

    It is snowing harder than I have ever seen! Snow is just streaming down!

    Over 1 foot of snow on the deck and the worst is yet to come!

    Workshop is getting buried! See pic
