Well I'm located up here in the lower Catskill area of NYS ,we got about another 8 to 12 inches so far, as of 5 pm Monday night. Expecting another 6 inches or so and Ice, Sleet and other goodies Mixed in By Morning.
How did all you guys make out, be sure to give your location.

Here's a short video of my '51 DB "Little Bertha" handling the mess with ease. Tomorrows mess will be a real challenge for her.

Good video! Thanks for sharing.

Snow and high winds here in N.E. Illinois. Conditions are getting worse by the minute. Total predicted low accumulation for the storm here is 14". High total is 24".
Deep snow is one thing, but drifted snow presents a whole new ball game. That fluffy white stuff suddenly becomes something that you can actually cut into blocks... and sometimes that's what you have to do to move it!

I posted my reply in the old thread before I saw this one LOL! I'll put a link to it in case anyone's interested.Click Here. I didn't manage to get any seat time at all out of it though, and thus, no video! The rain that we had here all day reduced the 4" of new snow to about 1 1/2" of goo which is navigable. When the snow hits tomorrow, we'll get 'er plowed off. BTW I'm in Western PA, about 1/2 way up North to South (Just East of Youngstown, OH if you're looking at a map).

5 inches reduced to 4 with a candy coating on top. Pushed like thick cement.
Currently freezing as it hits anything. Calling for another 4-6 (down from 8" earlier today).
NW PA about 45 minutes South of Lake Erie.

Edit: 11:30pm everything ice covered, gotta watch to make sure there's snow where you're stepping or down you go.

11 inches since 8 am this morning. 29 MPH sustained winds with gusts to 40. I went out just before dark and there are many drifts above my knees. I should be out in the shop right now adding height to the Power King blade so the snow doesn't fall over the top when I ram the drifts ~~ but ~~ I already have the electric blanket on and ready. :smile1:
For some reason that seems way more appealing.

Well it was not as bad as the weather Guessers said it would be.... Woke up to only 4'' of heavy sleet/snow. I guess the Bolens will get a work out today but not as much fun as I expected :D

5 inches of light snow last night in SW NH, snow had quit by 8 pm. Sometime before 5am this morning the second wave rolled in, 4 inches by 6:30 with more to come, supposed to mix with some sleet and then back to snow before we are done sometime tonight. My wife works at a boarding school, as they went home yesterday they told non-essential employees to stay home today. She got a quick refresher lesson on the snow blower this morning and has her work cut out for her today by the looks.

For some reason we can't really get any snow here in south central PA. We got freezing rain last night and made things pretty slick and kids have a 2 hour delay for school. If we can't get a good snow storm I am ready for spring.
