IMO the powers that be go overboard in issuing warnings and overthinking the situations. People get complacent when the "cry wolf" factor keeps showing up. They learn to ignore the warnings because it's usually just drama---- and that is when they get into trouble. This time it is a real storm and they figure it's just another false alarm. Somebody is bound to go out when they shouldn't and it'll be tragic. Stay safe, everyone.

Even the raised transit is shut down for now.  No one's moving for a few days and the World will shut down w/out big markets running and everyone staying home! Will take a long time to dig out I bet. Bet they can't even throw the snow in rivers and ocean for awhile. That IS how they do it, isn't it?

Dang!! I can't believe the difference a 100 miles or so makes on on this storm.This is a shot from outside my shop.

Had the little mutts out at 6am had to dig them a path up though the yard.Just looked out and my path is blown back shut all ready.

 

 

Took the old Yard stick and poked it in the middle of the yard.23 inches of snow so far in south central PA.Still coming down.We had some wind last night but it's pretty calm now.Watched the news last night and they said 12-18 inches expected.lol

 

 

This dry snow drifts really bad even with 10-20mph winds can't imaging what 60mph wind would do.Keep safe and keep Warm everyone.Looking at the Temperatures across the map that's some crazy stuff.12f some places and 40f other places.It's 18f here.

 

 

Here have a look out my window YUK

Hey good thing I changed the oil in the $30 8hp 27" blower yesterday.I had some cheap 30wt in it and it would Not crank over.I pulled the dipstick and it had gelled up.I had to put the hair drier on it for almost an hour before it would crank over enough to start and let it warm up.The old Sears SS14 isn't gona get used.:(80-90 is WAY to thick in the rear end for winter use)

Talked to my Grandmother on my lunch break at work ( around 3:45) today, she lives near Reading, PA (Shillington), at that point they had about 2' and drifting heavy with everything shut down.

Watching Weather Channel and that is all that is on it.  Odd to have Big water and rain at Shores in winter???  Rain like heck there and Snow like heck just in a ways on land.  They say shore IS wearing away towards some houses there. I never understood why  people want places right on shores and houses fall into water and such.  Do insurance company's really cover those homes, or do they just take the risk and lose the property?  

Flood Insurance is a Federal Program so, we are subsidizing those homes with our tax dollars. Another case of the government funding risk taking.

 

Looks like I have 6" near the house. Cleanned off the tent garage as it was getting dark. Town 12 miles to the west got 10". Good Luck, Rick

I will post some pictures tomorrow it will be a very long day trying to clear out. I was not able to plow Friday night  to try and keep up  with the amount of snow that fell because of the wicked wind . When I looked outside Saturday morning and saw, I knew I was in trouble the old case 155 even at 12 hp could not handle the very wet and heavy snow . Trying to break through the wall of snow the truck plows create was a challenge.

30"??? Holy White Fluffy Crap!
Not that we haven't gotten that here at times with the lakes, but its always something to talk about (sit around the local greasy spoon and tell tales). If you stay around to talk, the snowfall gets deeper, just like something else.

Hope you guys get out from under it all. Pics of the kids out in will be something they appreciate later in life.

We were missed up here, 2-1/2" is all we got. southern CT by the coast was hit the hardest between 12-18" I am going to try the snowcaster on the Bolens then probably switch to the plow.
