Re: Snow Tonight/Tomorrow

Just started snowing here. The latest guess for snow fall amounts is 6" to 10".

Re: Snow Tonight/Tomorrow

Been raining/sleeting/icing since this morning with probably an ice accumulation of about 1/4 inch so far. Hoping we don't get much more ice that will start dropping limbs and lines!!!

Re: Snow Tonight/Tomorrow

Earlier they were predicting up to 8 or so, now Accuweather is saying 3-6. Guess we'll know when it's over. I spent mosr of my prep time helping my brother get his tractor ready but I did get my walk-behind started and made accessible.

My "honey-do list" is so long it has chapters.

Here's an early pic (first pic below). Doesn't look like much, but it's a solid 3+ inches, with nothing but ice under it. We had dinner out (started snowing right before dinner), then had a late parent/teacher conference.

Driving around in this was extremely treacherous, and I'm glad no one was really on the road when I was spinning around sideways...

Got back to our street (cul-de-sac), only to find the road partially blocked by a police truck, and several utility trucks working on a pole just past our street. No power after our street.

Hopefully, this isn't a precursor to another winter like the last one (second pic is this past March 13)...

Good luck with your trip. The storm itself should be long gone by Saturday afternoon. The temps after the storm seem like they will warm back up.

Re: Snow Tonight/Tomorrow

Looks like we got the 5-8 they were predicting on the high end. Hard to say because it turned to rain overnight, and is starting to compress.

Schools are delayed for two hours, which is good, because this stuff is going to be heavy and wet to move. Even worse, it looks like a giant blob of rain is heading this was from the PA/NJ/NYC area later this morning.

I'll try to get some more pics up soon.

Oh, and in case you didn't believe me when I said I too am not ready for winter, in the deck pic above, you can still see summer toys that haven't been put away yet for the cold months (slip-n-slide, etc.).

Re: Snow Tonight/Tomorrow

We got hammered where I am in Hudson Valley NY. Easy 12" and still snowing now. I'll take pictures but not sure of the way today will go. Dad sold his plow as he did not want it on new F-150. We did not get any machines ready like normal as he was sick and I got it yesterday and did not go outside, a decision I regret now. The JD was running ok after a carb scare hoping it still will. The Suburban and Bolens are buried behind flip tractors so might be fun to get to. Took some phone pictures through window last night so at least have a couple.

Re: Snow Tonight/Tomorrow

Latest forecast here was "another few hours of snow". I laugh because the local forecaster my wife watches all the time is typically wrong. 2-5 turned into a good solid 6+ after some rain happened. It's raining now instead of snowing as he said. If more snow comes in on top of this it'll be an ugly situation as it's heavy. Oh well, I've got the fan and Kombi at full speed pointed east toward your place Mike!

Re: Snow Tonight/Tomorrow

Thanks Bill!

I went out at 9 with Son #1 to get him on the bus. Son #2 gets on the bus an hour later. The snow is supersaturated, heavy as wet cement. We drove over it, but then I used a shovel at the top of the driveway where we park. My back is not happy with that decision...

Couple of quick pics. The pics are deceiving, that stuff is at least 4-5 inches deep, and unbelievably heavy. Oh, and the leaves are still coming down...

Rain is picking up now. Going to let the rest just melt.

After Son #2 gets off to school, I'll be dialing into work. Nice to be able to work remotely, makes no sense in showing up at 11. The traffic has been as awful as can be expected today too. Two separate parts of the Mass Pike were completely closed due to jackknifed tractor trailers earlier today.

Re: Snow Tonight/Tomorrow

Last night I didn't bother putting the plow on my pickup,or moving my "mowing" tractor out from in front of the "plow tractor" in the garage,seeing the TV weather babes and guys were all predicting only 1-3" ,and expected it to warm up into the 40's by 4 am,then turn to rain,and wash it away..

HA...I got up at midnight to use the bathroom,looked out on my deck,and was horrified to see at least 6" had already fallen!--it was bare ground at 8 pm when I laid down !

Great..

It rained this morning,hit 50 degrees for about an hour,now its dropping again ,back to near freezing..much of my driveway turned to slush,but I still have to go scrape it off or face the possibility of it freezing up overnight..
I have some company coming tomorrow from Wisconsin,so I have to not only clear all the slush away,my house is a friggin disaster area too--they have a 3 year old,so I can't leave things I have "out" ,the kid might get into them or get hurt..

Of course my back is killing me as usual--not looking forward to having to do all this in one afternoon--especially when it'll be dark by 4:30 pm..

I hate getting caught with my "pants down" so to say,because I trusted the TV weather forecasters..typically they make every minor snowfall sound like the end of the world so more people will flock to stores to buy food and other stuff--this time they kind of downplayed it,and as a result many towns didn't prep for the storm as much as they should have--lots of the private contractors they hire to plow town roads are landscapers and they still were doing leaf clean ups,didn't have their plows on yet..and dozens of accidents happened as a result all over the state..


I'm not even sure I have any GAS to run my tractor with hanging around either..
