......... workout when he clears the driveway (no snowblower and he doesn't want to pay someone while unemployed). I choose to remain optimistic. :D


In central NJ, we got 7 inches snow and no power outage. :) Prayers were answered. Thanks again for them.
My wife and I shoveled out this AM and afterwards decided we had enough of this type of workout. Bought an electric snowblower for the next storm. We're in our 60's and so far can manage with these things but it will make snow clearing a little easier.

We will continue to be optimistic with you and DH. :) :)

Looks like it has stopped at " 6-7 ish ". The sun is out and my power remained on. Hype was bigger than the storm--as usual.
My friends and family in Massachusetts however....report 24-28 inches.

Hearty New Englanders like us do not get very upset about such things, but as we get older, it does seem "less fun". :D

The hubs has gone out to begin clearing the 175 foot+ driveway, (and Opa, he does not really like snow blowing, but it is better on his back, for sure! Get the snow blower!!) but it will be tomorrow before they clear our dirt road. Ah well, we have no where to be, really and so, no worries.

Stay warm, all!

Well, here in CT my car doesn't make a bump in the snow until it reaches the windshield. Yeah.
We're not going anywhere for a while! :lol: :lol: :lol: Roads are partly cleared, still have snow on them
but at least a center lane has been mostly plowed. This is 'shovel for 45 minutes then come back in
and pant for a while' snow, it's very windy and the snow is powder so it's a bear to move around.

Well, at least a dry snow is not so heavy to lift, even if you have to lift it more often :D

We ended up with somewhere in the region of 28" of snow but really? This was not the worst storm we have ever had and seemed pretty typical of a New England storm when I was a kid. They cleared the roads quickly because no one was on them all night and t hings are back to normal, except most storesand businesses will not re-open until tomorrow. The snow banks are high but it looks pretty. I was surprised we did not lose power but I am farther from the coast (about 30 miles) and the snow was light and fluffy. Parking won't be fun for awhile but other than that, we are good! I just wish the loony media would stop making every storm into Armageddon. Hurricane Sandy was far worse to experience for most people...this was just snow!

I admire you northern peeps with you attitude with this storm. Two inches cripples us. Often times it's ice and we have lots of school busses over lots of frozen bridges and stuff. And not too sure the town even owns a snow plow. Snow is a fun event here. Now hurricanes are another issue. :rolleyes: We all have things to endure. But yeah....we are whimps down here. :unsure:

Oh it's plenty heavy when it's up to my hip (I'm 5'7") and I'm clearing a 6-car driveway
AND a 2-car driveway. Snarkypants. :P

blocked anyway hahahahahahah........

Enjoy the warm weather, Colleen :)

We only got a few inches-- no biggie. The wind, though, was wicked!

Bun-- maybe a nice Epson Salts bath?

So I didn't actually get to the 20 feet of sidewalk until today, whereupon I realized that the sidewalk drifts
coupled with the plow throw equals up to my.... chest. Almost armpit. Over a 1/3 of the neighborhood hasn't
even bothered with their sidewalks hahahahahah! I didn't even finish mine, which I'll probably regret tomorrow
with the rain that's expected all day but, whaddaya gonna do?

It sure is purty out there though! Also fun to see who's driving around, and in what, and seeing the pictures
from all my tow truck driver friends pulling stupid people out of snow banks!

Lol we were hoping to get more than we did up here in northern Maine! We got maybe 6 inches and lots of wind, the storm stayed about 2 hours south of us. It sure does help with the winter economy, tourism is a high point in the winter up here. Skiing, snows sleds, etc. my friend who lives in the Portland area had about 29" and it continued to snow past that, not sure what her final total was lol They just had a relaxing day around the house. Snow days are the best days to curl up with a book and relax! 😄😄
