I've been lucky so far, all the snow is melting as it touches down. I hope that it continues to melt. I would prefer to not have to plow. Good Luck, Rick

As far as yesterday goes the "weather guesser" was WAY OFF. I don't even think his guess was in the same zip code as me...haha

 

I made sure to get out before 10:00 Am and get everything ready so I would be prepared for my late evening clean up, we didn't even have an inch on the ground when the sun went down. We were suppose to have 8-9 inches by then. Looking at the radar though it looks like it could have been an all day event for the people who live south of me. Not me though I was just above the line.

 

About 8:00 pm last night I did see the snow starting to come down pretty good and the winds were picking up so knew there would be some snow for me to clean today. 

 

Well my giggling stopped, I got about 8-9 inches overnight and its dumping it pretty steady now.

Update ....The weather guesser still has time to be correct on the amount, just late on the arrival and departure. I though I was going to wait till the end of the day to get this but its piling up too fast and drifts are building.

It was snowing most of the afternoon but the ground was too warm and it was melting. About 1700 hrs it started to stick and I had an inch by dark. When I checked at 1900 I had 3 inches. Internet went out at about 2130. At 2200hrs there was 9 inches on the porch rail and it was really coming down. Large wet flakes that were making trees bend. We even had thunder and lighting in the snow storm. At about 2245 the power went out.

This morning the power came on at 0615. I got out and plowed so that my son could get out. Broken trees and branches everywhere. I had to run the FEL into many trees that were bent over and blocking the drive way. I looked like a snow man(pay back for not putting the cab on the tractor) and the tractor was coated too. I came back in at 0800 and got him off to school and took a break. Power went out. An hour later it came back. After lunch I went back out to finish cleanning the parking spots and the gable ended tent garage. A 3" diameter branch had landed on the tent garage and bent one of the horizontal pipes.

When I came back in, the clocks were flashing again so the power had gone out while I was outside. I'm done for the day. This storm ended up much worse than last weeks storm. We had over 180,000 without power last night. The crews from Canada and the mid west were still here finishing up last weeks' repairs so, they stayed for more repairs. There are alot of trees down, many roads closed, many accidents, and there was a strange accident that bears telling. A local volunteer fire department responded to a power lines down call very early this morning. When they got there, they noticed a house on fire and put it out. As they were getting ready to pack up and leave, a huge tree crashed down on there big truck. This was still in the dark and the poor men couldn't see what was coming as they heard it fall. It took hours to extricate the truck. Fortunately, no one was hurt and the damage to the truck is repairable.

The governor says it will be days before everyone gets power. I have been lucky. I will post some pics but in the mean time I'll post this. Good Luck, Rick

From what the governor said, we are lucky to have the out of state crews still here because there is a great demand for them all along the east coast now. Here are pics from around my yard. Many of the very bent trees are birches which flex and break easily.

1st pic is my Case 222 that does the small snow falls, it would not have been fun to use it with this heavy stuff. 2nd pic is the Ford 2000 under its tarp and trees bent down onto it. The other pics show bent trees and bushes and how my van looked. Good Luck, Rick

CT is only about 50 miles by 100 miles but the snow ranged from 1 1/2" to 28" across the state. I was lucky with only about 6" on the driveway and having power now. I feel sorry for the people that are without power. I would have had to spend an hour to dig out and set up my generator but, atleast I have several for when I need them. The woodstove is keeping us warm. Good Luck, Rick

You folks have been getting hit hard to say the least! CT is only 50x100 miles? That is almost the same size area as the Black hills that we live just east of!.

 

Still hoping you all get some relief out there!
