    I would love to stay an extra couple days, but the grandkids have to be back at their mothers on Monday, and their father (my son) has a medical appt in Boston Monday morning.

    I bet he's sleeping in. Up till 2:00 AM and I counted 9 empties. <>

    I revise my initial estimate. Probably 18" and drifts over 3 feet. Holly crap there is a lot of snow out there! I gave up on shoveling/snowblowing. They still haven't plowed the road and Our shared driveway. Wind is still blowing and where I started is all filled in again. I just got the exits clear in case we need to make a run for it(emergency).

    I don't even plan on going out to clear the driveway (under 1' to 4' of crud) until it lets up a lot more.

    He's probably out shoveling thinking he's been exiled to the penal colony Rura Pente! ;)

    Not a trekkie, but I've seen a few episodes :)

    Oh but it is. and that is only one end of 1/10 mile of driveway.

    There are three of us that do the snow removal.

    ETA: I can clean it in 3 trips down and back with the blower but then one has to make a place to turn around in for the fire trucks (code requirement) and in my case I also punch a path up around to the upper drive.

    Morning all. Looks like we got a couple more inches for a total of 19.
    Drinking some java then off to join the snow throwing party.

    Solar panels are under there somewhere but not too bad. wind did most of the work.

    Up and attem you bunch of drunks !! :confused:

    Would have been here alot sooner. Been dealing with someone in Kittery who had water dripping from the stove. I'm not there but it appears that the OAK had quite a bit of moisture entering the inlet. Seems like its OK now, she had to venture out and check the exterior. Sounds like it is OK now though.

    Gonna be a long cleanup as it is still snowing like crazy here !

    tough to tell with the drifts and the wind is still blowing, but based on the depth all around the yard I would say we got somewhere around 30"-36", Even the neighbors with snow blowers have come back to the 20th century with me and are out there shoveling. I would recommend buying stock in Bayer after this storm...;)
