Storm hasn’t peaked here yet but a few pictures:

Out the garage door.


Out the back door.


About a foot on the ground, forecasting 24” to 30” before it’s over. The wind is howling! Fantastic!

I remember a time, when I searched for lights to fit my needs. Now I search for needs to fit my lights.

I’m ready with an 8k watt back-up generator and 2k back-up generator for the back-up…and then again there’s those two cords of wood out there.

Photos out back were taken with a 4D Mag, stock :bigsmile:
If it wasn’t so damn windy out I’d gather up a bunch of lights and take beamshots. They look great under these conditions but it’s cold out there.

We had about 12" the last time I snow blowed my driveway about an hour ago (Huntington Long Island) . It's still coming down pretty hard and wind seems to be picking up a bit. I have a generator just in case we lose power

I think I’ve mentions this to you in the past Glenn, or at least I meant to, I was born in Huntington. My mother’s family is from Riverhead.

I think you did mention it before. Very cool. I was born in Brooklyn, moved to Levittown when I was three, then  to Plainview when I was 7, lived there till my mid 20's, then to Huntington. I've been here ever since..

It’s interesting hearing these updates! Where I am, it’s about 25C outside and sunny, a bit short of the forecast temp of 28. I have a generator in case the power fails when it hits 40C+ to keep the a/c going! Hasn’t happened for a few years now though.

Stay warm guys.

Cheers

Busy place, Long Island, a bit to populate for me.
Riverhead is nothing like I remembered it, going to see my grandparents.
I hadn’t been there in 40 years, took my mom a few years ago to see the house her father built. The last time we were there it was still a small house with a large barn and seperate office building (he had his own buisness) and about 15 acres of land. Now it’s a small house on about 15,000 sq/feet of land in a subdivision. So sad, I loved that place.

From the other thread

I ran the snow blower down to dry pavement 6 hours ago before bed and removed a solid foot of fluffy white stuff. This is what I woke up to and they are predicting another foot during the day today before it ends. So we are looking at a solid 3 feet of snow here on the coast of NH. Amazingly the power hasn’t even blipped probably because I spent two days charging batteries.

Sorry to hear you lost power, I am glad you have a generator. I have resisted the urge to buy a generator and we always loose power. I have a backup Kerosene heater that will keep the house at 80 degrees when it’s 0 out plus I have over 200 gallons of K1 on hand at all times so it’s not the end of the world when the power cuts out. I have gone 2 weeks before at this house without power during a big ice storm some years back. It was pretty boring, but we were toasty warm.

I am already visualizing the duct tape over your mouth.

“E”, thanks for *_’charging the batteries’!

_* It worked for us here in SE CT too. A couple of blips of power outages <5 minutes, but enough to give you a scare. Even your hotrodded C8 could not cut through the big blow.

Got the wood, got the 12v lantern system ready to go if necessary. (gotta rethink my position on kero, never have more than 2-3 gallons)

Now to figure out how to move 2’ snow and 3’ + of drifts…

Fun to look at, too old too shovel…

I hear you on the shoveling, luckily my girl is 12 years younger than me and in great shape so she shovels the deck and the rest I can do with the snowblower.

It was blowing so hard last night I had to turn my headlamp off it was just reflecting off the snow making visibility worse.

Wow!! That is unreal!! We don’t get snow like that but the last couple of weeks here have brought us -54F with the wind chill. Our biggest snowfall this year has only been a few inches so I can’t even imagine what you guys are all experiencing!

Honestly, I’d rather have that kind of snow than -54F but the last time we had a blizzard anywhere near those snowfall amounts, we had the flood of the century.

Good luck to all who are dealing with that incredible winter storm!!

For all the howling wind we didn’t loose power once, nice!


A friend gave me a call on his way home from work to see if I had any sheer pins for his snow blower. I taped them to a football and had my son toss it to him from the garage.

This is going to be a long cleanup 6 hours was way to long to sleep. The snow is a solid 30 inches deep with drifts over 40, much deeper than my snow blower by can handle.

Still snowing here, will be until later tonight, about 25cm down right now, 15-20 still to go apparently. Wind is starting to pick up, but the storm is loosing it’s intensity as it goes over the ocean.

about 20 mins of shoveling and i have about 1/20th of my driveway done… yay for procrastination on fixing my snow blower… may break down and get someone to plow, but i hate cleaning the gravel off my lawn and patching where the plow dug the lawn up…

I forgot what a royal pain the butt it is to shovel snow.  Living in apartment complex, not even supposed to have to shovel it... took me an hour to clean the car, stairs for myself, and old neighbors, and a path to sidewalk.  Conclusion: I'm tired, and out of shape.  

Can't imagine how you guys with more snow are faring.  Good luck and take it slow.

60 foot driveway with 3+ foot snow drifts.

3:53 pm and plow guy is still a no show.  Looks like I'm going nowhere.
