    If they tried that up here they would get laughed at! It's a winter sport to drive around in a snowstorm with a beer in your hand.

    Ya, Jaffrey tends to be on the high side of the area averages :( The big (lol) news in Jaffrey is we're FINALLY getting a pub :) Lab n Lager (Keene) is opening downtown. The only places for years have been the VFW and Legion. The Chinese place doesn't count, in my book anyway. $7 drinks are good but ill take the $3 drafts any day ;)

    Got hit pretty good here. about 38 inches un offically due to blowing around... but thats the best average i could find. Some drifts on my sliding glass door were over my head... 7-8 feet.

    my road still hasn't been plowed yet. completely impassable.

    my blower died half way into it. so i shoveled way more than i care to admit. i was out from 830 to 2pm in the snow, and my driveway isn't THAT long.

    upon first opening the garage door.

    There are 2 vehicles in this picture.

    Well, I called a neighbor across the street and he tells me we never lost power, so I don't have to worry about burst pipes. It looks like Bradley is re-opened so we should be able to get back home tomorrow, and the wife called a friend from church who agreed to clear the 300' drive with his big bucket loader. So all in all I would say, life is good.

    My neighbor also told me that we got about 30" total snowfall.

    Here is a shot of the snow we got October 5th, 2012 18" of heavy wet snow. When you went to move it there was about 9" of slush. Power was out for a day and a half. Where the branches of the trees are is a lane that is 10 feet wide. The snow was that heavy that it complete block numerous roads from trees being knocked over.

    Well we just got home from the West Coast, HOLY SMOKES!!! :rolleyes:

    The snow on the deck is above my knee, about 32". The neighbor did a great job plowing the 300' drive, he even shoveled a footpath to the garage door. I can't complain at all for $135. The kid shoveled out the three cars and a path to the wood rack on the deck. I will finish the rest of the deck and front walk tomorrow.

    We are expecting some freezing rain early morning, might want to re-think tackling at least some of it now. Plus you can work off some of those vacation calories ==c

    My power just came back on!! I came back to this thread to resume where i left off... We got slammed. I think about 2 feet. i was too busy to measure it, and forgot to bring the camera plowing. I've never seen so much destruction! Trees uprooted everywhere. poles and power lines down all over the place. most of the roads were impassable, some until sunday. I spent a lot of time in the truck, and then spent even more in the backhoe once the truck couldn't push it anymore. We went out one night from midnight to 6 with ten wheelers and hauling snow away from intersections, so drivers could see around corners. luckily i had the woodstoves. I was plowing out peoples driveways with the backhoe while they sat inside watching in coats hats and mittens, waiting to get out.
