I have 6 inches of snow already. And this isn't even snow from the blizzard which will add 16-24 more inches.

What kind of name is that for a blizzard?

Sounds fishy to me.

Spellin' help from Rho D'ilan!

I just slid down the driveway to get the mail.
Roads are going to be ice with frosting.

Tracks are covered 1/2 hour later.

He's helped me, so I figured I'd help him.

In response to your shock about my spelling help....

Yessuh!

I feel for you guys. I hope you don't lose power. That storm just
left Chicago this morning and we're lucky we only got hit with 5" of
wet snow.

Passion Pit, at Agannis Arena, is cancelled and moved to Sunday night at 7:30pm. I hope they weren't planning on being back to work on Monday.

I hear there are power outages happening in CT, MA, and RI.
Wind hasn't got up to speed here yet. The worst of the storm is expected at 11, with winds picking up to near 60. Maybe then we'll start having power outages. But so far, so good!

I moved my generator into place. I rarely use it though unless power is out for several hours. Otherwise, I have a battery that keeps my heat and a couple lights going in a power outage.

I'm sorry that you only have 5", I's got 9".

I blame my Parents!

The wind is roaring through in those long, sustained, surface-level freight train blows like only a Nor'easter can do. Looking down from the second story onto sweet drift patterns constantly re-forming around the stone walls, trees and parked cars. The angel my 75 year old neighbor lay down and made on her last cigarette outing flew away.

Time to take the dog for his crystal blasting.

Hello New England and all the ships at sea!

Blowin' like a mutha' here!

40 mph on my home anemometer. It doesn't record gusts well.

Not sure about quantity of snow. 4 inches on the front step. Back slider is 2 feet.

Power is blinky and I'm carrying a flashlight. Internet is blinky too.

Yeah, it's hard to tell how much snow is on the ground when it's blowing this much. The drift between the two cars in front of my house is almost windshield-height. But there's only about 2 inches on parts of my front porch. I'm guessing we've got at least a foot.

Boston.com says Mass. has got 345,000 without power right now. The NSTAR outage map looks like the Cape is bearing the brunt of it - you guys must be really getting socked with the wind!

Power blinks are line shorts, more common in high winds.

Wind effect. The far end of the neighbor's roof has no snow. Near me it's a drift more than a foot tall.
