Thank God for this storm, and the beat it to death media. I couldn't take another day of limp balls. :D

That's cause it's all in my driveway! Prema worked today, the USPS did not, so I had the honor :D . She's finishing up. Too bad we don't have the rest of the week off. We could go places we only read about on this website or New England Trail Conditions.

Looks like I will be spending more on gas for my snow blower than my car this Winter.

So you're saying the Blue Hills will have some fantastic snowshoeing this week?? I haven't been there in a while. Might be time for a visit!

Snowshoeing might be the only way to travel anywhere at this rate. :twisted:

Looks like it shifted a bit to the north, or they disagree on the bullseye. If this holds up that will make for over 6 feet here on the coast in the last two weeks. Bring it on! :beer:

I can tell you for a fact, those totals I very exaggerated up north. To be specific, Lincoln.

I'm headed out to shovel another 17 inches and possibly the roof which has about three feet except where I've raked. I love snow but this is really getting ridiculous. I'll have to get a measurement out in the middle later on. I've never seen this much south of the mountains, let alone in a matter of weeks.

Luckily, our particular condo does not have this going on.

 Re: Please, please, please...
We have leaks, too! We could shovel our porch roof, but I'm going to have to get some one professional for the rest. I have one of those big ol' historic houses which are great until you get troubles like this. Then, I have a narrow drive way which goes out back to the carriage house that is my garage. There's no place to put this damn snow. My side of the garage (tenant's vehicle is bigger, so she gets the bigger side) is too narrow for me to back into (the driver's side would be against the wall and I'd have to squeeze out). I HATE PARKING FACING IN! I'd rather drive out, especially now that I have to go down my narrow drive way without hitting the snow on either side. I've gotten the damn thing stuck twice now. I like snow, but this is a bit much. How ironic that many of us were looking forward to it, but home and car maintenance are stopping us.

Ice dams suck. I've busted up a couple over the last few days. Saw through them most of the way them smash with 3 lb sledge. Avoid blinding ice chips then salt the crap out of them to keep a channel through. More fun was shoveling the roof entirely today so that doesn't have to be done again, and then clearing the 10 foot high snowbank away from the windows and doors. At least the kids liked jumping off the roof and sliding down them. If we hadn't lost the power an hour ago I'd put up some pics. Maybe mañana.

That's what you think :twisted:


We're up to 33" at our stake at work, which the snow tends to drift away from. Got a bit over a foot from this past weekend's storm apparently (half of it was drifted off my car by the time I went outside). Last Monday Boston set a new record for most snowfall for them in any 30-day span. That was only day 17 so they're still adding to that record (they too got over a foot this weekend). This is one of those times I'm glad I live in a complex, where most of the shoveling I need to do is just to get my car out of the parking spot. I feel for those of you clearing your own driveways and such, I don't miss those days. The snow's been nice, but enough all ready with the weekend storms please, I want to go hiking, preferably above treeline!

Snowiest cities in the US right now...

US States and Cities Snowfall Totals Normal Season at This Time

1 Worcester, Mass 103.0 42.9

2 Lowell, MA 100.8 35.8

3 Buffalo, New York 96.3 71.2

4 Boston, Mass 95.7 29.0

5 Erie, Pennsylvania 91.3 76.1

6 Syracuse, New York 86.4 90.6

7 Rochester, New York 77.8 69.0

8 Grand Rapids, Michigan 70.1 58.4

9 South Bend, Indiana 66.2 51.9

10 Cleveland, Ohio 54.0 45.4

I blame the forumites who live in these cities (you know who you are!!) as clearly the weather Gods are out to get them and the rest of us are collateral damage.

We've only had about 75 inches in my town (I think) this season. Only 44 inches remain in my yard at the moment. Seems strange since it hasn't been above freezing to melt it in what seems like months.

My middle daughter is 40 inches tall, and that's her hands and hat sticking up out of this hole I dug in the yard.

And now I have 8 - 12 foot high snowbanks surrounding the house because I shoveled the roof. The girls had fun walking up right onto the roof and sliding down yesterday but I won't be surprised if there's still some here in July!
