Thanks, Chris. Conserve the batteries. The forum is covered and we know you are okay. I hope the generator comes up okay!

Morning everyone. Lost power here for a couple of hours early this morning but it's back on for now. Hard to say how much snow is down but right now what's coming down is tiny flakes. Shovelled the front step and it's packing in quite heavy. I'm going to venture out and have a walk about and take a few pictures. Doesn't look that bad out in the yard.

First round of clean up done, still snowing here at 10:15.  The "blob" in the first 2 pics is the car in the 3rd pic before unburial.

Sounds like they are toning down today's additional snowfall.  Looks like you all have enough as it is.  Hope all the power is restored to those down very soon.  

  Chris, is yours on yet, or do you have your genset going yet?

Morning all real bad here. Going on hour 13 with no power, and by the looks of street poles and wires big trouble some where. So far looks like we lost 3 cars too, they are under a big tree, got so bad early morning around 3 am I gave up was afraid about making the news "man found in tractor under big oak tree" Weather station in house recorded winds peaking @ 70 + until it stopped due to snow, also had lighting. Have many photos , ever see snow coming down sideways, I have now! Time to check he generator grab a coffee and play outside some more. PS Case 224 handle it great so far, if the street was plowed and my truck wasn't under a tree I could go some where.til later

John, so sorry to hear about your cars.  Do you have any transport for when the snow is cleared?

 

Glad to hear you are OK, look forward to seeing your pics.

Tough break on the tree John! Can you see the extent of the damage?  We have large White Pines on our property and I'm always  nervous of them coming down in a big wind. Sounds like it was a lot nastier down there. It seems to have lost some of it's winds by  the time it got here.
