Cool Snowin' 'n' Blowin' ----> & Now: Damn Ice Dams, Dammit

Started snowing here around 1:15AM. Looked out at 1 and nothing, but when I went out to go to work it was just starting a few flakes.

Now it is blowing like hell. I think more blow than snow at this point. Already got a drift going up aginst the lobby door into this place, but pretty bare on the road & parking lot.

Next move is to see if they call off work today. Although I, and some of my elite crew, are already here and doing business.

Man on man, CNN & The Weather Channel are making a huge deal out of this. 1am before leaving for work I'm watching one of them and they have a live shot in Boston with a weather woman standing in a street that was pretty bare of snow, and she had the camerman focus in on a 6" snow drift up against the door of a business hahahahahahahahahahaha

Sounds like the forecast we get here. Prepare for a Blizzard, we get a dusting. We are only going to have a dusting, we have a blizzard with a foot and half of snow. LOL

So ole buddy, how much did you get.

We are sitting with 3 feet actual and about 5' drifts.
Not a fun time....fortunately we still have power, some 20,000 souls are out of power mostly along the shore.

Boston and Worcester have been shut down, no schools, no road travel except for necessary personnel,( hospitals, police, firefighters) Mass pike was closed...they remembered the Blizzard of 78.

We lived in Boston during the Blizzard of '78. I'll never forget that!

We got about 24" as of last night. However, between 8pm and when I went to work this morning at 4:30 another 6 to 8 fell. So a total of maybe 30 to 32 inches. Fluffy as hell, especially the stuff that fell over night.

My biggest drift at home is maybe 6 ft. Here at work I have one in the 8-10 ft range.

It has been snowing here for the last 24 hours or more. Just rolled into work and there is about 4 more inches in my tire tracks left from 5 pm yesterday. Since the main storm passed Wed. I've probably picked up another 10-12 inches.

Light & fluffy, though.

We're taking a beating here today, supposed to be about 18" by the time it's done.

Had to happen I guess, it is winter.

Won't be long, and we'll be cutting grass again. And so it goes around.
