We got dumped on, too – but the wind scoured some areas clean and made huge drifts in other places. Still blowing around and forming little whirlwinds of snow. Surprisingly, we didn't lose power either.

@Region Philbis,
Unreal. Tnx for sharing.

At 7am it was 36 deg down here. Mass casualties here as people slipped with their walkers.

@Joeblow,

this is one of those storms where you might run out of places to throw the snow...

@Region Philbis,
I know it. Do the snowplows leave those horrible berms at the end of driveways there too? They make me cry.

We had at least two feet..the drifts are what killed us..the snow was light and the high winds caused huge drift shin spots.

Had to shovel out an area in the back yard for the dogs but we now can get out of the driveway.

@Tai Chi,
Apparently I have forgotten how to quote.....one of our neighbours is the local go-to guy for driveway clearing. We have noticed on our walks that he clears about six feet in on many of our seasonal neighbours' driveways. Realized he does that to get rid of the snowplow berms. He is going by anyway when he does his rounds and this way he does not have to contend with the "concrete" if he gets a call from a summer resident who wants to come up for a winter visit and asks him to clear their 700 foot driveway.

@Tai Chi,
First time I've come across berm.

I just assumed it was the French word for bottom.

@Tai Chi,
I wish we had a local go to guy! Poor mrjoe has become it for our neighbours. In that horrible dumping two weeks ago our blower crapped out. I helped as best I could, which isn't saying much really. Embarrassed

@izzythepush,
Just looked it up and turns out berm is from the French for a narrow ledge -- not so narrow though!

@Tai Chi,
It was a joke. I can't say berm without it sounding like bum with a French accent.

Similar to beer can sounding like bacon with a Jamaican accent.

@Joeblow,

on a couple of rare occasions i've had sympathetic plow guys clear out the front of the driveway.

i'm sure they appreciate the folks who don't vindictively throw snow back onto the street...
