    My parents are in Newtown and they said they got 15" with 97% of the town without power and they were given a week ETA for power to be back. Thank god I split wood for them the last time I went to visit them. My friend is also a fire Lt. near there and he said they ran 168 wires down calls from the time it started snowing. CRAZY!

    I'm ready for some snow up here in Central Michigan! We are ready with the exception of moving our skid steers, back hoe, and wheel loader to the sites.

    And the tree huggers complain when the towns and utility companys want to cut to protect the wires from damage. Our town did some major cutting the last 2 years and we had minor damage this storm. Towns around us look like a war zone.

    Where I live in Lake Carmel, NY got 16-18", my excavating shop in Poughkeepsie got 6" only 30 minutes away--1000' difference in elevation.Sat. Night had me on pins and needles-- took a back road to avoid the morons on the main road--couldn't make 1 steep hill with my snowmobile trailer with my generator on it,slid backwards 50',jacknifed with the trailer hanging over the cliff.I have no idea how all of a sudden I was able to get going with the trailer jammed up against my trucks rear tire with all that snow and ice and then with the tires clawing for traction I made it up the mountain.10 minutes later now on the main road, a guy slams into the side of the trailer--only harm was to his car. Then sliding for 45 minutes on a state road (Rt. 52) with app. 12" of snow, trees and wires down every 1000' or so.Then at 10 Pm to fire up the generator.NOT FUN!!

    No kidding. I grew up there. Live off Toddy Hill. Luckily my uncle lives in Wilton and they have power so my parents have been driving over there to sleep, eat, and take showers.
