Yeah, I totally understand.  I don't have any clue as to what it's like to get that much snow.  I went thru a couple of 36" plus storms here and that was plenty for me.  I love plowing snow but I was ready for it to go away then.  I can't even imagine how you folks deal with it.  We're prayin for ya man.

yeah the weather man here in Chicago said that a couple miles made a huge difference  buffalo Airport  had ~6", while 6 miles away they had 5 FEET of snow......

6" or 6'  don't matter/ you can have all the snow this winter we don't need it or the brine they put on the roads these days with it either.

God dang ! it just goes on and on,

 

Soon as I got the word I brought the snowplow down to the market today, time to start repairs.

 

I wish you all the best, stay warm and stay safe.

How much can you have before you don't have anywhere to put it?

Surprisingly a lot. I still have a ton of room for snow.
Speaking of snow I just came in from blowing another foot of it and helping dig out my elderly neighbors.

There's always places to put it.  With all the amazing logistics available, we can dump it right in your yard if you don't behave.

my brother runs a plow every winter as he works for a town in their public works dep't  and every year he has the same residents of a particular cul de sac  call the village hall and complain about them having to find some where besides his front yard to pile the snow... but there IS no where else after you get "so much"

I just can't imagine how your dealing with that amount of snow !!!   We had a 2'-3' storm years ago , with the drifts over 6' none of the snow equipment in our area could open some of the roads . It was 3 days before a large loader open it enough so the plows could push it further . for cars to pass . Are there worries about flooding if this melts next week ?

Saw pics on tv...... front door collapsed inward, and others.  All I will say is STAY SAFE !   If you have enough supplies take it easy.

4 + feet now, 2-3 more on the way and then rain in the forecast. I am praying no one has a roof collapse.

I just read where that is becoming an issue.
