    We didn't have much going on down here last winter when Mexico and Oswego got hit, so we went up and shoveled some roofs. We did it more for nostalgic reasons, than to actually make any money. How often do you get to see this kind of snow??

    It wouldn't have mattered where you parked your plow truck, you'd be in trouble. It was too deep, 6-7 feet in places, you couldn't push it, you had to throw it. The guy that was with me fell off a roof into the back yard, and he was literally stuck up to his armpits, his feet werent touching hard ground, and he couldnt move:help: . We had to dig a path through 5-6 foot snow to him to get him back to the driveway. Needless to say, he bought dinner when we were done!!

    It looks cool after its all done, but I'm sure its a headache during the whole storm. How in the hell do you move 6'-7' of snow. In the Detroit area a couple of years ago we had 24" of snow and it closed the whole city down for 2 days. I can't image 6' - 7':dizzy:

    Like BigEarl said, they get their snow in feet all the time. What amazed us, these pics were taken less than 24 hours after the main snowfall, with more on the way, and everything was running along just like normalwesport . We went to the ATM to get money, went to McDonalds, stopped at the grocery store to grab some sodas:drinkup: . I think the only thing that wasn't open was the schools.

    I lived in upstate New York in 93, we were getting 12 inch snowfalls on a regular basis, so the blizzard of 93 wasn't that big of a deal. Of course, we couldn't find our cars out in the driveway, and they shut down the highways, but other than that it was just more snow. We already had a ton when that one hit. Everyone up there has snowmobiles for getting around, they arent so much for recreation its kind of like a second car. In fact my stepmother had two of her four kids during the winter, had to be brought to the hospital on a snowmobile.
    Naturally I didn't have a plow in 93. Funny how people up there who grew up with it handle it so well. Everybody drives pretty fast but no one ever crashes. Down here if we get a dusting all the soccer moms and dads immediately drive their big AWD SUV directly into the ditch.

    yeh the worst part of the 93 storm really was the drifts, the snow amount wasnt really that large just the winds made it terriable.. i had a few rescue call that night for the for dept. back than i had my 77 chevy short box 12" of lift and 40" tires with plow set up and pretty much was able to go any where i wanted... wish i still had that truck.

    Detroitdan where did you live in upstate NY in 93. Was In high School in Boonville NY and I remember we got hammered. I was working at a convenient store and I was there 20 hrs because no one in one could get around period.

    Lived in Forestport, right out behind the Wigwam, and I worked in Utica for a few months. I loved it there but the GF hated it so we moved back. Used to go to Boonville for groceries and stuff, since there was nothing in Forestport. Also used to ride snowmobiles to Boonville, my father's first house up there was right on the state trail so we could go right out of our driveway.

    Small world; a couple years ago I was driving a heavy wrecker and got sent to eastern Mass to pick up an antique fire truck someone was restoring. Couldn't believe it when I saw Boonville FD on the door.

    Last Year's Storm

    State and city did a great job given the amount that fell.

    Here's a video I made from some storm shots, of the same storm.
