I had a 48 inch drift in the driveway. Here is a picture of the first cut. In those boots, that is just shy of 30 inches. I had to go to my mother's last night. Couldn't be avoided. The visibility was so bad I drove right by my street and I was going pretty slow. The truck did fine in the snow. I checked the radar when I got home and the image over my area was bright red. Must have been close to 4 inches an hour right after I got home. From what they are saying, Connecticut and Maine are hitting the jackpot.

Bob, Glad to see that you've still got power (even if it's the generator).

Bob:

Looks like you got a nice winter snowfall. 30 inches is kinda nice. Make some great seat time.

Last night when we went to bed there was no snow falling at all. This morning got up it is -9 with -23C wind chills winds at well over 80-90kph with gusts 10-20kph hihger from the north east. A true Nor'Easter is upon us. We already have about 24 inches on the back of the deck - south side of the house. The front deck is pretty clear - course it is on the North East side of the house :D

Seems the storm from Ontario has merged with the Nor'Easter so it is going to be a big deal apparently. We are in for a nice winter storm. A perfect day for a blankie, a nice breakfast and park our tushes for the rest of the day.

WOW! nice storm!

29 inches was the most consistent measurement in around my house. forget anything with a plow, you couldn't make the first pass, and it would have been useless to plow last night. the blowing snow simply would have filled everything back in. the snowblower was the ticket. there is 24 inches on my street, last plow was 9PM last night.

nice fire going in the shop, though. i had a nice picture, but cant seem to get it to upload, regardless of the size.

It sure is! That is my Commercial 12. I'd love to re-power it someday with an 18-20 HP engine!

Nice gravely bobinct.

I just can't win this year. There is a time to park the snowplow and use the snowblower.

Bobinct; The first thing my son said is we need a gravely tractor with the snowblower........ditto that.....
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

A report from the east slopes of the Berkshires. Maybe 18" to 24" of snow here. Cub thought it too cold to start, but I kept bugging it and finally got it to wake up and show of it's stuff.

This was one for the record books for sure.
A bit much for the Cub going into virgin snow so I did clean up once the Ariens went through. We had 22 inches showing on the yard stick however I have a feeling we were closer to 26 or 27 in most places. Lots of drifting so it's hard to get a good reading.

Emily took the photos.

At about 8:00pm last night we still only had approx. 3" on the ground. By 10:00pm we had a foot. The boys were out trying to get a jump on things but finally gave up.
Besides our own driveway, Aron and I cleaned up 4 other driveways together and he did another 2 or 3 with a few more to do tomorrow. Erik was off driving a skid steer clearing up an apartment complex for his boss.
Still need to get the Silverado dug out.

...and the front porch, wood pile, deck, and tool shed.

Time to curl up in front of the wood stove with a cup of tea.

Well, I only got one photo today before the dark set back in. Here we are just pulling out of the barn to begin the process. That's with the blade raised as hight as it will go.
