    The weather channel said there are areas getting up to 4" per hour.:eek:
    on the east coast. Major cities look like ghost towns.
    Be very very very careful out there.
    Had a whopping 1/2" here last night, lake effect.:eek:

    we've got 23" here as of noon and we're expecting another 2-6" depending on how long it holds on.

    The top of my F350 is standing about 10' with all the snow on the cab

    And yet people complian about the cost of snowplowing.....just think of how hard any piece of equipment is working to clear that much snow. Even if you were lucky enough to plow every 6", that's still alot of snow:nod:

    the snow is extremely light, probably the lightest snow we've ever gotten around these parts. shoveling 2' was quite easy actually. it looks like it is finally tapering off So i'm going to go out and do the final clearing with our total being 26-28"ish

    I think the final total snowfall amount was 26". I measured 22" @ noon and when i went back out this evening I cleared another 4" on the driveway. Upon checking depth after all was said and done it has settled to 21".

    It was pretty bad! Definitely pure white-out here in RockyHill, Cromwell area. From 9am-1pm we picked up about 13". After 1pm it slowed down pretty much and just picked up about 3 more inches until 7pm when it stopped. Grand total was about 20".

    Well, it sounds like most everyone made out well.
    I've seen some damage pictures though....part of the game I guess
    And we charge too much for plowing:rolleyes:
    I don't think that we'll top that around here but there may be something for us to plow toward the end of the week. I better get all of our trucks cleaned up so I can curse us into some snow.:D
