    This storm sure did make a mess! Trees and wires down everywhere. Snow and green leaves just don't look right to me.

    This just missed the old flatbed.

    This did not miss the power lines to my house. It pulled about 500' of wire off the poles.

    Doh are those ripe tomatoes still on the vine?
    Def strange to see snow with the leaves still on the trees.

    How many feet did you guys get?

    We are starting to get snow too. I got called into work Saturday morning, went out to warm up the car and there was 1.5" or snow of snow... guess it's time to pull off my summer tires! Snowed another ~1" this morning.

    No genny. I have one 20 amp line from the neighbor's genny. We only got about 6". So much of it melted as soon as it hit the ground. It did not melt in the trees though.

    Sure can make a mess at this time of the year but the good part is that it usually melts quite fast.

    Got power back at about 9 last night. 103 hours without. Most of the snow has melted so now I can cut the grass and rake leaves.
