Re: Generator Time!!!

I gave the generator a good workout earlier, fueled up the snow throwin' beast, and stocked up on bread and milk... so I'm about as prepped as I can be.

Charge your video camera - I can't wait to see how it does.

Not sure if you caught it last time:

It was incredible... but this will be a whole new ballgame. I'm anxious to find out... and I'll try to get some better video.

The videos are nice - the quality is fine. Ask her to please go outside and get a few minutes worth this time.
I grew up in Westport, so I know what's headed your way. This storm is going to be a great test for your machine.

That's like asking your wife to help you pick out studs at home depot.

If she finds one at Home Depot,she'll probably leave you

Unfortunately... I'll take what I can get for videography services... and that may very well end up being from the inside looking out.

Given the circumstances, I may end up having to go 1st person driver or set it on a stationary object and just get the widest view possible. I'll do my best. And yes, we're about to find out what my Rider's capabilities really are. It's been a beast thus far... I have high hopes.

ahh... I was hoping it was a 'standalone' unit - no computer needed.

Thanks - very cool to have live streaming images for sure!

I am so done with snow. It was awesome until I realized I had 5 FOOT drifts to deal with on the steep part of my driveway. Nevertheless, Incredible that I never got stuck after all that.. and I had no wheel weights, no chains, and no tire ballast. It slipped a few times while trying to get those ridiculous drifts... Amazing that it only slipped those couple of times really...

I watched that whole video. It was oddly mesmerizing. That sucks though. I think I got maybe an inch and it pretty much melted off my driveway today. My snow blower is still buried in the back of my garage. Supposed to be in the 40's tomorrow so we've been lucky.

Thanks! I didn't intend for it to mesmerize.. but I'm glad you enjoyed it. I enjoyed making it... for a while... and then it got old.

HAHA! I know the "feel" bro!
I used to be all excited about using my snow blower until we got our Nor'easter in December.

What's with the black bars shaking up&down your video?

I let YouTube "fix" the shakiness of my video. That was the result. I'm having it rerendered to remove that "fix" as it just looks like hell with those moving black bars.

You mean the whole 18 inches?? That's nothing. You Montrealers don't know real snow.

Snow drifts making banks over 2-3 feet.
City plow locking me in twice in a row.
Point is: It's no fun.

And I'm sorry Bob, but I don't see how New Jersey gets much more snow on average.

I would have gladly taken 2-3 foot drifts over the 5 footers I just had to deal with.

My point is that your all-time record-setting Nor'easter in December was no big deal.

Depends where you were. Montreal got over 50-cm (~20 inches) while area's like where I am got over 30 inches from the same storm (spread over 4 days).

The banks all around me around are about 7.5 feet high. I wish I had 2-3' snow banks. But at least it wasn't -40C when I had to shovel. Was only -27C, *phew*. That -40 stings.

BTW, schools didn't close here. Ontario closes their schools for 10cm.
