    Yea, I meant 60 knots- a slight exaggeration, i'm sure...lol But there were some intense white-out blindness moments. Only thing missing was thunder and lightning.

    Got it. Is using knots a east cost thing or are you a boater?

    I was plowing roads in Holbrook, many times the roads vanished due to the wind blowing the snow.

    It was definitely more of a wind event rather than a snow storm for us on the North Shore. Two things on my list before the next storm are a good set of wiper blades and a deflector for the top of my plow.

    Primo--You got it, I am a boater. Which reminds me I better go check on my boat. She's an old 33' Viking sportfish. Are you a boater too??
