^^ 6 am ^^ shoveling to be able to get to work.......I was out there from 5:55 am till 7 and I only got about half of the driveway done..........about 10 minutes later when it combined to be a blizzard, I said screw it......I' m taking a comp day.


^^ 2 pm ^^ on the way to another whiteout...........


Wait 5 minutes and the weather will change is a little saying we have here in WI. Very true it is.

We ended up with about 10 inches.........and now we have lake effect snow going on and off. Blowing and drifting also. However, it looks like the east coast is really gonna get slammed. Good luck everyone.

We got a hell of a lot of snow...and it's still falling. 20-30 cms, along with winds gusting to 80 km/h. Not a nice day at all!

Oh, you can watch our webcam. It's pointed outside.

(In case you're wondering, that funny white thing is my father's computer screen reflecting in the window.)

No cars can get up the hill, they keep on having to reverse, hehehe.

We had that happen a few days before Christmas.... I was without power for about 14 hours (when I called it in they said it would probably be 48 + hours, so I feel very lucky) and know people who were without for 4-5 days.

I was a bit worried about maybe being 48 + hours without electric, because everything in my house runs on electricty (except the phone...and of course I had my cell phone). Because I have a cistern for water, I can't even wash my hands or flush the toilet if I don't have stored water (which, of course I didn't ).

This time I was prepared. I got plenty of kerosene and propane (heaters and cooking), batteries, hay and grain for the horses, cat food, dog food, even people food and stored a bunch of water, and am ready to rough it if need be (oh, yeah, I also live back a fairly long lane on a back road which is one of the last to be plowed out). So what happens? We get a dusting.

I had to shovel the drive-way about 4 times today just to get out. Now where's that canadian army when you need them?

Please... you inexperienced people. I laugh at your 18" of snow. I mock your 24" of snow. Here in New England, we expect 25" or more. And we're damn proud of it. O.K., maybe not, but that's what's coming.

I have plenty of snow pics from past New England storms. Would you prefer that or fresh new pics?
