Just went out to clean off the bird feeders. It's at mid-thigh. The little guy is shoveling away right now.

After leaving Boston in the late 70s I can safely say the one thing I do not miss about the city is the occasional walloping of snow mother nature dishes out. I hope everyone's power stays on and you stay safe. The images coming in from parts of New England are unreal.

Poor guy. Nice he had excellent neighbors.

I know this sounds strange but I kind of like this storm. It is nice the Mother Nature can slow us all down sometimes. It is kind of pretty and wild out.

If they would only move the date on the B's game I would not mind at all.

It is strange that we haven't lost power. I bet my installing a generator is why.

So I get on a conference call with my company this morning, they want all stores open by noon. What do we do that's so important you ask? Sell Verizon wireless contracts and services. And they want me to report to the Quincy store.....who last I checked had no power. That's gonna be a long useless trek.

This was a few hours before I went to bed last night.


And this is when I woke up at 7:00 this morning.




Out the kitchen window


Harvard Sq, around 11PM. Cambridge pulled their plow drivers off the road at 7PM so they could sleep, and they are resuming at 10:00 AM.


Harvard Sq station last night at height of the storm...look at those drifts!

anyone know anything about snow-blowers? yeah, it'll start, it'll move... but it won't throw snow. All the pins (shear bolts) are in (not broken) but the auger won't turn/won't throw snow. My guess is that it must be the impellar system or the fan is frozen. However, I'm not familiar enough with either to know if i'm doing more damage than good by playing around in there.

If anyone has any advice, I'd appreciate a PM.

Hope you're all better off than me.

Cheers & Thanks,

T

Wow, I feel for you guys. We got about 45 cm (18 inches) in 12 hours time about 6 weeks ago in Montreal, but sounds like you guys are getting it even worse. Hang in there and stay warm.

Thanks. We could use some MTL-style snow removal ops right about now!

I live (when I'm not in school) in the so-called "snow belt" in Ontario (basically of the east shore of lake huron), and we get dumped on at times, but never like you guys get there. Our biggest problem is snow squalls. Luckily our snow-removing force is bigger than our army. Just stay warm, watch sportscenter, and have a great day!

One thing I am thankful for is living in a large town/small city. Snow removal here is pretty fast and efficient.

I have been looking out the window and wondering where in the world we are going to start to move all the snow.

We don't have a snow blower-so the removal will be entirely with shovels. At least there are 5 of us so the work goes faster.

A cool 53 degrees in the house. Brothers truck dumped the hydraulic fluid, so looks like we will be wielding shovels at some point today. I would say its two feet minimum with drifts much higher. I think the end of the driveway was plowed by my brother this morning but I haven't the slightest idea what to do with the rest of the snow.

Chips and cereal for all!

Yeah, we're happy when we see them during a storm, but trust me, we pay for them dearly with our taxes

I was looking online at a snowfall map and I guess I misread it.. Regardless, there is not 2 plus feet on the ground where I am.

Strange. All areas near by have that. Boston reported 21.8 two hours ago. So they are probably close to 2 feet now, and other areas nearby have already reported over 2 feet.

2 feet of dry snow is one thing, 2 feet of wet, of the kind the southeastern coast is getting, is a different animal.

**** this. I am moving to Florida.

It took me 40 minutes to make a little area for the dog to go to the bathroom. I am going to force my storm door open and likely break it just to shovel.

Having to shovel like 10 flights of stairs down to the front of the house sucks, especially when its thigh deep, ugh

I just went out to look at my car. I have street parking on a major street and I can just see my roof.

The only part of my car to be seen this morning is the very tip of the side mirrors. You could hold a downhill skiing race off the top of that thing.
