    Let's get the rumor mill started. What is going to happen at the end of this weekend through Tuesday. Accuweather is calling for heavy snow formost of central and southern New England. Let's hope so.:redbounce

    I hope for another "dusting". That 5" dusting we had last night was nice.

    Yes and no.

    I cleaned 3" over night thinking that there was no more on the way. Had to do them over again. That includes going back down the hill. :(

    I hear ya. I went to bed early and didn't even think to get up and check what was going on. It looked about done by 11 PM and I figured that inch was all we were getting. I got up at 7:30 to a suprise. Luckily I didn't get a complaint, but it would have been my fault if I did.

    Either way a pleasant surprise. :

    All the locals are saying that it is going to slide out south of us, but of course they leave with the "we'll have to wait and see how it plays out" so who knows. It'll be a surprise just like today. I washed everything down, but kept it all hooked up just to see what is going to happen. Accuweather is saying 50-75% chance of snow on Monday for all of New England.

    I just hope we get a serious storm before the season is over. That storm on 2/14 was ok but all the sleet made it tough. I'd love to see at least 12" of fluffy white snow. Will we ever have "The blizzard of 2007"?

    I don't think we are going to have a blizzard of 2007. If we do, it'll be 14" of wet slop that turns to concrete half way through the storm.

    On and off snow showers. Local news says no big deal but it may linger around

    Gotta love those gravel driveways. I live on a mile gravel private road that I maintain and then have a dirt 20 car parking lot. My real driveway is paved, but the first 50 or so feet or dirt. These driveways are all just 9 months old. Needless to say, I have a lot of spring work to do after this last storm. I'm going to get one of those rubber broom things to attatch to me weedwacker to try to get some of the gravel back where it should be.

    You need a power sweeper for your Deere.

    That has crossed my mind many times, but the price is just too large.
