    Looks like I will be out there shoveling every hour to lighten the workload.

    Great.

    excellent. luckily it was less than an inch and a dry snow, blew right off. won't work with what is forecast for tomorrow - rain followed by heavy wet snow - going to need to get out the heavy equipment for that - my sons

    I'm waiting for the day when my kid is old enough to do the shoveling so I can sit inside and then come out and criticize his work at the end like my Dad used to do when I was a teenager. :mrgreen:

    Massachusetts governor has ordered a driving ban.

    Starting at 4 p.m. If you're nonessential (e.g. public safety, snow removal, utility, hospital worker) you can be fined and/or arrested if you're caught on the roads.

    Shit's gettin' real.

    One thing I dearly miss about Boston ... a huge winter storm, snow piling up, hanging with friends and/or family with nothing to do but stay in and drink ... blasting tunes and laughing as the snow falls all night ... the look of all that untouched snow in the streetlights ... ahhhh, memories.



    ...




    ...




    ...



    One thing I don't miss about Boston ... the absolute clusterfuck said storm creates for the following two weeks.

    take heart new england. In my brief time(about 90 min.) on I-71S in Ohio today I saw about 100 or so utility trucks(bucket and auger) headed north on I-71. assuming they will take I-76 east til it turns into I-80 east on through pennsylvania. I also noticed at least one Flat bed tractor trailer loaded with approx 50 electrical transformers on it. Help is getting staged !!!!

    There is 1 bar, and it is within walking distance...

    I could just go to the store and when the power goes out, put the 12 pack in the ghetto fridge. (back deck)

    The local weatherman spouts that the snow is going to be a light, fluffy type snow except over on the Cape".

    So, I go outside for preliminary shoveling evaluations, and the godamn snow is wet, thick and heavy.
    A snowball fight participants dream. Unreal.

    It's getting pretty crazy out there now. The T is completely shut down and it is illegal to drive. Non-essential personnel driving face a $500 fine.

    This storm is the perfect advertisement for me to buy one...even one of the smaller models.

    Whats the retail on that one? I'd even settle for a smaller model.
