Hi folks

 

 We are getting another foot or so as I write this to add to the foot we got Sunday! The city of Halifax is begging people not to bring their cars into the city. It's an old city much like a smaller version of Boston. A port town with a lot of older narrow streets in the down town and business areas. It also has ship yards, a naval base, several Universities and the main tertiary care hospital for the entire province right downtown. They were trucking snow out of the city as fast as they could yesterday. They have not kept on top of the situation and it's now a crisis. Fire trucks are unable to get to calls, etc. 

  Anyway heres some photos from my yard this morning. I just stuck the camera out the door/window. The wind is coming up this afternoon to 50mph gusts so it will be hazardous driving for a while. 

  The fence in the first picture to the right of my shed is over 4ft high and the gate is completely covered.  I've been here for 19years and never seen this much snow cover, particularly this late in the Winter.

Things should green nicely once some warmth hits the area. Just hope it doesn't all melt at once!

I went back upstairs after posting the and discovered that the front door was almost blocked with snow to the point that I needed to shovel it out ASAP. I headed outside and the amount of snow was pretty amazing. I decided to get the blower out and attack the snow in front of the steps so the dogs could get outside. I was sitting here just now and there was a bang, then things seemed to get darker? At first I thought the power went off but it was a big overhanging drift of snow falling off the roof and landing up against the window in front of my desk, partially blocking the light coming into the room.  Heres a few more pics.

This blower has been flawless all winter. I had considered selling it and picking up a lighter duty blower for what I thought would be occasional use. This winter I have had to use it in order to deal with all the snow that I wouldn't have had room to plow.

I wish. December was mild and pretty much snow free this winter!  It's like we have moved 500miles north into southern Quebec!

You have my sympathies Brian. Do you have any idea of the total snowfall you've had this year? Beautiful looking yard by the way.

There was a story on the radio the other day about rural dairy farmers in PEI who are dumping milk because the tanks are full and the trucks can't get to them in time.  It's been a severe winter for this whole area.

You can't beat a good Ariens blower Brian.  Keep the bigger one.  You never know.

 

I hope you get relief soon.
