    Well I'ts Christmas morning here in Jersey.And about 6 am I'm looking at 1 inch on my trucks and nothing on the roads.
    They say we will get more this afternoon, <they think>.
    It seems to be warming up a little but who knows? The weather man isn't sure at all.
    Guess i'll go look under the tree for that new snow blower I asked Santa for.
    Merry Christmas to all.

    Here it comes. Started about 5 am. It's Snowing and blowing and 28 degrees with almost 2" on the ground. We are expecting 6"-10" by end of the day. I am about 1 mile south of the Lake Ontario shore and we have about 20 mph winds with gusts, coming out of the north east. So far, so good.

    Charging everyone double till midnight.

    My Christmas wish come true.

    BIG M, Hope your wish comes true!

    ProSno, I also baked about 10 dozen cookies. (Ate about 5 dozen myself) Ho Ho Ho!

    Merry Christmas to All :waving:

    Just a dusting on the grass and cars here. Called in one crew to salt a hospital site at 3:30 am (at the hospital's request). Just rain now. They are talking sustained 25 mph winds for today, with gusts to 50 mph. More snow later.

  7. ProSno,

    I make egg nog too, but grandfather and his brother were bakers by trade. Uncle had bakery in Ontario, NY in the 1920's. Must be in my blood. I warm up quicker in front of the oven, Ho Ho Ho.

    It's 10:45 am. Nothing happening yet. Supposed to get nasty early afternoon and we are supposed to end up with a foot.

    Opened gifts this morning and enjoyed watching the kids. My little girl 14 months had fun opening her gifts, putting them aside and then playing with the boxes that they came in!:D

    No snow here on Cape Cod. A brief flurry before dawn. Expected heavy rain. No money this storm.

    We weren't supposed to get any of this, but ended up with anywhere from 1"- 3.5", plowed and salted from 2:30 am till 6 am, woke up the kids and had a quick Christmas, then plowed from 7-9:30 to open up churches for services. Now its nap time till 2-3, and then off to do the rest.....

    This Christmas morning plowing is getting pretty common here !

    This is for Pittsburgh PA:



    At 3:30 pm yesterday they were saying "snow heavy at times after midnight....2 to 4 inches....Christmas...snow heavy at times..total accumulation 5 to 8 inches...."

    I was out at 5 this morning and the most I saw was about 3/4" of snow. Mostly there was slush.

    They just lie, and lie, and lie....

    Nothing sticking on the hard surfaces here. Just some left over hail and a little snow. Getting to spend Christmas day with my wife and children. Did see the biggest "globs" of snow I've ever seen, a couple of hours ago. They were, fully 3". Looked like white silver dollar pancakes floating down. Beautiful. My 4 yo daughter and I were catching them in our mouth (or face). Pretty cool.
