I hope everyone stays warm and safe with all these storms. We are just supposed to get rain, I don't think we can deal with another week like last week.

Unless Moses steps in to part the sea I do not believe this is going to stop before morning ( let alone 10:30

I did some extra cleaning Saturday to give more room to pile more new snow 7 also moved the pile the city leaves me so they will have more room to add to that pile. With only 4 inches being predicted for here I will wait until I get home from work tomorrow to clean it up.

It's 12:25 and no snow in sight yet but they are calling for 8 to 14 inches, maybe the Ford will get a work out in the morning. Hope everyone stays safe in the upcoming storms

Looks like it made it's way further north than they expected, as it's snowing pretty good up here...probably 4" on the ground, and tough to see out the window. I had hoped for a couple days off!

I'm sure more on the way, but under the estimates so far.

Well, got about 3" before work, went in at 10:00 and lots of late trucks or no shows for parts, we were running very low if not out on many. Day shift no working at 8:00 am yet and people still coming in when I left late at 7-ish. Only a few wanted to stay over to help them out. There is no trucks out all night last night with blowing. They were gonna start at 5:00 am, but I only saw one truck and that was in MY town. Most highways have maybe one path, but most just tire troughs you had to go into to pass the real slow drivers. Road up hill to my drive was just two tire tracks, but made it OK with 4x4. Level 1 emerg in county now, not supposed to be out driving. Guess I'll be up at noon and see what I can move of the 8.5" snow the wife measured. Might be using the blower more today, to at least get first path made.

Getting ready to go out in the next few hours, watching the weather and waiting for the call in from the boss man.
Drive safe and be safe guys, see you on the other side.

I would guess we ended up with 7-8", to windy to make any accurate measurement! 6* this morning, not expected to get obove 10* all day & -10 or colder tonight with single digits again tomorrow. I'll get the little walk-behind snowblower out pretty soon & clean the walks, about all I can do with one arm! Neighbor cleaned the drive last night & probably will again this evening. ~~ Lowell

We didn't get near what they were calling for, about 4" on the ground. But man it is COLD today, strong north wind blowing that snow all over the place with -10 wind chill. Supposed to get another round tomorrow then again friday.

We ended up with 3-4" this morning north of Cincy. Wet heavy snow with a thick layer of ice on top, crunch crunch when ya walk on it and very heavy to shovel.

1/4" - 1/2" of ice here.
On Monday, we just had 8" of the heaviest, wettest snow I've seen so all the trees were already weighted down. Today's ice is taking out a huge amount of trees. Power is out everywhere. We have 3 electric providers in this county and the last number I saw from the biggest one was 75,000 customers down. Ours was only off for two hours this morning.
It sure is pretty though.
So far we only lost one major branch but the temps over the next few days won't allow much melting and it's supposed to get windy tonight. In these pics, keep in mind all these trees touching the ground are normally trimmed to allow me to walk underneath without touching anything.
