We are getting hammered here in S.W. NH again. Snowing hard, supposed to change to sleet and freezing rain and then back to snow again tonight, all total calling for 8-12" of snow with up to 1/4 inch of ice sandwiched in the middle. The drive to work was miserable, and the drive home will probably be worse. There is one hill between work and home that spends more time closed than open in this kind of weather, usually tractor trailers not equipped with chains floundering on the hill, oh well its winter in New England :rolleyes:

we are forcasted to get 3 to 6" tomorrow. I wouldn't mind getting 6" We dont typically get that much snow. 4" is probably a average snow fall around here.

They're claiming that the storm coming our way Friday is going to bring 25 to 30 cm of snow.

We have about 2 to 3 so far and more still coming down. I stayed home from work since I didn't think the roads would be any better come time to go home. However the college my wife works for was the only school not to close, so I drove her to work and am hanging out in a coffee shop at the school using there wifi and working.

Should get some seat time this evening, I may put the cab on before plowing, supposed to get to 5*F tonight, and a high tomorrow of 14.

It just started to snow here at about 3:00. There's about 3/4" at this point. It's coming down steady, but it's very fine snow. Don't know what they're forecasting, but I'm off tomorrow, so I can clear it up then LOL!

I just got in from about 3 hours of plowing snow. The driveway, which had an inch in it to begin with had about 7 to 8 inches when I started. About half way through, the idiots that have had my lawnmower since October picked today to bring it back :wtf:! (They replaced the correct switch this time, but they still didn't change the spindle bearings that are dry! That means I'll get a couple of cuts in next year and then have to send the D$#M thing back AGAIN!) but I digress...I had to plow a path back to the upper garage (where I store the mower) through the yard which had a good solid 12" of snow in it! Did I mention that the battery on the lawnmower was dead and it had a flat tire..so I had to tow it up there to boot! That's the last time I waste good money on an extended warranty! for what I spent on the warranty, I could've replaced the spindle with the bad bearings in it, the other spindle with the bent shaft (which isn't covered anyhow and that I didn't hit anything with) and replaced the switch that was bad...correctly the first time! Sorry, I'm ranting, and probably in the wrong thread too!
