Mike...we got hit hard, but I was looking at some radar for your region and you are getting it much worse! We had times of zero visibility, but not as bad as you. Here are some pics from this morning...before it got windy.

Snowstorms don't knock our houses over like tornados and hurricanes do, no thanks, I'll stay up here. You can always add clothes when you're cold, but when it's that hot, once you reach the b.day suit, you're in kaka, and I don't want to see any sweatho.....

No moving to Alabanana for me.You can keep your Hurricanes,Tornadoes and earthquakes.

 

Besides I couldn't take all those Bozo's at the local Alabanana boat launches

So when do you plan to start catchin' these fish??? :dunno:

 

We don't have that many Wall-ice here, but we're not overrun with Skunks like you seem to be Mike. :whistling:

At least a foot of snow on the ground here and drifts up to four feet, Cleveland Hopkins airport was shut down earlier today and not scheduled to open till at least 6 am tomorrow. Might mean flying delays in a lot of places due to back ups.

 

LOL got the snow plow driver scheduled for 4 to 6 am to do the drive tomorrow after the blowing stops. No place anyone had to go today to risk your butt going around here.

 

Tried to call Whopper, supposedly his area is getting slammed worse than ours, if it`s possible. Hope the old guy wasn`t old shoveling.

Cleaned off about 6" this morning,there's now about 8" waiting for me tomorrow. I dont think my 'Blower can throw it over the snow banks down the drive any more. Then there's the roof to think about :wallbash: T'ell with it! i'll think 'bout it tomorrow.

It's terrible over here. (I'm in Pickering) I've had to do the driveway, and back deck three different times today. The white stuff just keeps falling.

 

Hopefully this bad weather doesn't continue tomorrow. I'm sick of shoveling. :wallbash:

LOL Paul and yes I shoveled snow all today :wallbash: I wouldn't want to make a habit out of it though :lol:

 

We had only gotten 15 inches total for the year before this storm and we got more than that in the last 34 hours. No worries it's finally through.

 

It was nice to chat with ya on the phone :thumbsup_anim:

We got hammered pretty good in Grimsby here yesterday.

 

Yesterday around dinner time it was snowing harder than I have seen in a long loooong time. We also got some thunder and lightning along with the snow. I will post a few pics once I dig out the driveway.

 

Lots of snowmobiles zinging around the roads here last night which is not very common around here.

 

Cheers

We got about a foot here with some massive drifts. Damn snow plow made it a lot worse though.

 

Saw a guy comin down my street last night with a lowered civic. Bumper was plowing the snow (ended up breaking) absolutely no snow tires on. It took him 45 minutes to go 50 feet down the road. It was quite funny the entire neighborhood was standed at there doors laughin ( a few of us went to help but when a big cloud of smoke came out of the inside of the car we decided to leave him be)

Hello......Hello...... anyone up there? Could you pass me down a shovel? Yes, there is a house down here!

 

I haven't seen a winter like this since I was a kid, figures it's the first winter in about 15 years that I didn't go South LOL.

 

We have snow drifts that have to be at least 6' deep. Oh well, something to tell the great grand kids about.

 

On the up side of things, I just found out (and got connected yesterday) that we can now get wireless high speed through a company called Xplornet for less than I have been paying Bell for dialup. So far so good! Mind you, I am really looking forward to telling Bell to take a hike (if I can ever get to talk to someone who cares)!
