    I should go check the reports now and then. The last I heard was 2-4" one time around, then maybe another 2-4" from another system. I'm kinda in "I'll believe it when I look outside and see that the deck and steps need clearing" mode. There was a Winter Storm Warning for York County, and a Watch for Cumberland County, last I knew.

    I've had my plow off for over a week now, so it's not my fault. ;)

    Yee-ha! It didn't look quite like that at my place this morning, but it looked like more than "2 to 4." When I have to push the outside door open 'cause the stuff is higher than the bottom of the door, it's a sign I'm probably going to be doing some plowing. :D

    It's starting to look a little more like what AccuWeather was predicting than what Weather Underground's forecast was. We could probably average-out the two and get the right numbers. :rolleyes:

    Argh! I don't even have my plow on yet. Almost, though. ("Minute Mount? 'Scuze me, I don't think so.")

    Film at eleven.

    It stopped snowing around the time we started trying to get the plow back on, and the sun came out for awhile. The plow had shifted its position during a warm spell, and the attaching process wasn't going too well. Finally, La Wife suggested putting her scissor jack under the A frame and boosting it back up where the push plates could get where they needed to be. Sometimes, living with the World's Smartest Woman has its advantages. :p

    When I first went out to the truck this morning, it looked like this. I bet the snowflakes were thinking they had won.

    After a lot of frustration and bad language, the plow was back on the truck, and the snowflakes had lost another battle.

    We didnt get any of that yesterday but it s really starting to hammer us up here right now at 12 noon today . Just big fluffy stuff but coming down at a pretty good clip . Weather Bug says S Aroostook and N Washington around 8" so we will see if that V is up to it!!!

    That's the first time I've seen WeatherBug's site. I kinda like it. :cool:
    We're getting another shot of it today. I kinda think WeatherBug means 5-9" between today and when it ends on Wednesday, rather than another 5-9" during Wednesday, right? :eek:

    I found out yesterday that the fluffy stuff is easy to toss around, but if it gets packed down, it's a real PITA. :realmad:

    I got 4-10 inches Monday depending on location. More closer to the coast of course. Looks like Midcoast gets the jackpot again tonight/tomorrow. 5-9 inches. May not get two more full charges, probably 1 1/2 or something like that.
