Re: Generator Time!!!

I used to be all excited about using my snow blower until we got our Nor'easter in December.

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.
