We're getting pounded. I have shoveled at least a foot already. Yes, it's beautiful and glistening and light and fluffy, but even light and fluffy gets heavy at some point.

Where are you ? And how much are you getting ?

(ahem ... snow, that is!)

In Boston we have several inches and a strong wind from the East. It's supposed to snow until tomorrow evening.

I'm in a western suburb of Boston, and though I've shoveled a foot, there's easily another 4 inches out there. And the gusts are really picking up.

I heard all vehicles except emergency vehicles are banned from the roads.

I wonder if Pittsburg is getting hit and how it will impact the Pats game tomorrow.

We had a cold snap today; I had to put on a sweatshirt before going to dinner.

Ya gotta love Texas.



(Ask how things are again in August.)

In southeastern CT., the snow started around 2 PM.
I spent a good 40 minutes out there before coming back in at 1 AM after Round One of shoveling. Because of the brisk winds and attendant drifting (the snow is mostly falling sideways), it's difficult to say exactly how deep the snow is.
Because of the brisk winds, there's very little snow on my roof except for a snow dune at the leeward end... neighbors' roofs follow suit.
I'd say there were approx. ten inches on the sidewalk in front of the house.
But it's NOT "fluffy" light snow... it's that fairly dense and solid snowpack, composed of those tiny little flakes... serious snow.
I have a feeling it's going to be around for a while.

I think we in the western burbs of Boston got two feet, and at two feet, it's heavy.

I hope they got some of this up in ski country; at least it does some good up there.

Magus, southeastern CT ? Wonder if Foxwoods is open? I'm guessing yes.

four hours of shoveling, onto piles over 7 feet high - is too much snow. Wine now, shower later. oy.

I pity you poor homeowners. I'm snug as a bug in my apartment, looking out the window at the winter wonderland and the very occasional car that staggers by. Beautiful. I haven't been outside since Friday night and have no intention of doing so in the near future. At least not until the landlord's minions have done something about the steps and the sidewalk out front. That could be late tomorrow. I already know I'm not going to work tomorrow. Tuesday? Who knows. Snow is wonderful.

Ah yes, the landlord's minions ... I guess I would be my very own minion.

Homeownership has its rewards, though, because in the Spring and Summer, I have this amazing private yard to frolic in.

Very Happy

I don't own, I do shovel, and I do frolic come spring. Best of all worlds, really.

So damn hot Saturday! I had all the windows open and could not sleep!! Toss. Turn. Flip the pillow over to the cool side for like two seconds - cooled down a bit with this rain, but even then it is going to be nudging 30C all week!!

How much snow is too much snow?

If it sticks to the ground instead of melting on contact, it's too much.

looks like we got hit hardest in this area - AGAIN.

Quote:
Nearly 80 centimetres of snow fell north of Boston, parts of New Hampshire got 60 centimetres, New York's Catskills collected at least 50 centimetres and 45 centimetres fell on parts of Connecticut, New Jersey, Rhode Island and the eastern tip of New York's Long Island.


More snow predicted for thursday (or wednesday?).

angie... The casinos never turn a sucker away... neither Foxwoods nor Mohegan Sun skipped a beat.
BUT... Since there was scanty clientele, they graciously "allowed" most of their fulltime, non-probationary employees a day off without pay.

Truer words were never -- well, seldom -- spoken, Eva.
