    My son sent these pictures to me. They were taken today, February 23. It's still snowing there as of 5:00 PM with an additional amount up to 6" by midnight. Jay Peak ski area, about 12 miles away, has measured 55" over the last 7 days. If you like snow, this is the place to be. It's good that the first pass down the driveway is down hill. His Jetta is hiding under the snow . Our cabin near Jay is all but buried. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

    We got the same storm here in New Brunswick, im my area we recieved about 20" and I think the hardest hit area in the province had around 26" and this does not include how deep the drifts were, in my yard it was drifted up to four feet. It was a long couple of days, if you had a straight blade well you might as well as stay home. I know some contractors that had straight blades that left them at the shop and just used V plows & loaders. Luckly I have one V plow to make the job easier.

    The thing about plowing with the storm was you pretty much couldnt, we had about 12" on the ground in under two hours and you couldnt see anything out there.
