Heavy snow fall out there right now but down around 19 degrees so not wet, some wind but not too bad so far, about 3 inches on the ground but really starting to add up fast.  Can hear the wind in the Pines out back just as long as the pines stay upright and keep their tops we will be OK

It gets a little nerve racking when you live in the woods surrounded by huge oaks that surround the house lol. 

 

And yes we ain't seen nothin' yet! The wind is starting to get stronger as I sit here typing. Stay safe!

I know the feeling, trees are a crack-en here too. I'm surrounded by oaks and pines031.JPG

We have a gen but with the way the wind and snow is atm I really can't run it yet. This is the 1st time in the 10 years at this house that I have seen it this bad in the winter. I keep shutting the laptop down to conserve the battery.

 

We have a huge oak off the front of the house and It has huge branches hanging over the house as well. It is nerve racking hearing the branches snapping off and not knowing if one will come crashing through! If it were up to me I would have cut the tree down long ago, but it is not my house and they love the tree. One branch is off in the drive right now. So we'll see what happens.

 

If you don't here from me tomorrow, it was great knowing you all! :wave:

I hear all you "under tree dwellers"!  We are under 2 big white pines in the front, the top of one is a 4 part candelabra w/15" diameter candles.  3 years ago it was heavy snow, 2 years ago it was ice and last year wind and clumpy snow in mid-Fall.  All three storms filled the front yard with "lumber" and I got sick of reinstalling the front gutters.  Nothing will keep you thinkin' in bed like waiting for and hearing that sound! 

 

Trees tonight are not too bad, medium to light weight snow and very little wind... so far.  I think if it does start to blow harder the snow will blow off the trees, it's that kind of snow.

 

Good luck to everybody!

Still some fine snow coming down, plenty of wind and blowing snow, headed out to start the clean up process soon, going to be cold and wet by the time we are done.  Looks like all the trees around the neighborhood stayed upright wtih no large branches down.  Power stayed on and internet is working, As long as the blower fires up and the back holds out we will get things cleared out.  By the looks of the snow on the deck I would say 14-16 inches here.  Will take a few pics before we get started.

Well I just got up after a woping 2 hours sleep. Not sure if I am going to stay up yet but figured I would send a daylight picture.

Glad some of you are able to post this morning. Chris, is the power still out there?  Some areas may not get power back on real soon as the wind is keeping the crews from going out.

no power here Kenny. Like you said the crews couldn't get out to fix it. Last I saw they said it could be days till it is back. I just hope the gen doesn't give me a hard time in this cold weather lol.
