I got around 5 am about an 1" you know what's the big deal , loaded the stove went back to bed.
7:00 About 4" now over 6. Its so hard to get a good reading as the winds are wipping it.
This is pretty intense as imbeaded thunderstorms are occuring. None here yet, but not to far to the east they had one

After 8" I'll be out plowing, that is If I have any visability, IT is nasty out now

Been snowing here all night, but with 45 knot winds there is hardly any snow accumulation. Most of the driveway and walkways are completely clear, just a lot of snow drifts up against things like bushes, trees, and my back door. Keep the wind blowing! Then I don't have to fire up the snow blower and move it myself.

The Temp just dropped from 24.5 to 18 within the last few minutes?
IT's comming down even harder and we could have about another 8 hours of this

You are right but evididently this Grossman's is a salvage type clearing house and bought a supply of remaining
R- 11. R-11 may still be manufactured but higher densities, the common R is R-13 or R-15

R-15, eh?? That's nice....seems to be getting better all the time. Let's just hope those R-values are 'honest'.
I used R-15 in a home I built several years ago in WV. (The ex has it now)

It was kinda firm/dense compared to R-13 and really good to work with. Should be code in 3.5" walls!

The link doesn't work, Elk. Get a message that I am not authorized.

Don't know how much snow here in Framingam, but looks like 6" to 8" right now. Pretty scary conditions - I'm not going out today, for sure.

Western MA, 10:12 AM, still snowing ALOT, around 12" now. I dont burn wood, but I do SHOVEL my dirt driveway, 140' of rock-strewn heaven! Hey....I keep reading all you wood guys talking about the therapeutic effects of splitting and stacking and hauling your wood, but in the next breath you talk about plows, snowblowers, etc. AH.....the therapeutic effects of my snowshovel......

bah! when our power goes out, Im gonna tell countless stories of the "good ole days" to my kids.......power out for weeks on end, having to shoo the polar bears away from the woodpile in the back 40 all the while dodging the trees which were snapping due to the extreme cold weather, making a stop every once and awhile to put our bare feet in some fresh cow manure to warm them, looking forward to getting back into the house to play a rousing game of tiddly-winks, and dang happy to be there!

Sunny and calm here on the other coast :). Though our families are on the east coast. I can hear my sister-in-law complaining all the way out here.
