A paltry 3" here. Barely enough to ski some of my smoother trails. This is a terrible winter.

That won't stop his unit but I doubt they will be doing a water jump as they often do into the the base's lake.

That's not good if it starts raining or melting. Get someone to remove some of that snow.

I believe that was from a tree falling on the trailer not snow. Saw it some where on here in another post.

Saw that photo and almost started to extend my reservation here in Florida. Talk about a wake-up picture!

When I was a kid in 1947 in NYC, we had about 26", paralyzing the city for a week. The city plows never came to our neighborhood and the local homeowners ass'n hired a plow. The day (12/26) of the storm my father had to drop off someone at an ocean liner pier and he hardly made it home. Now that 1947 storm is the 3rd highest and I don't have bragging rights anymore. The awful thing was schools were closed anyway and we didn't get any snow days.

Looks like NYC is doing a lot better job of clearing the snow now. DC not so much.

Having lived in Buffalo for 8 years and Colorado for 38 years, feet of snow seems normal to me. In Buffalo in 1976-78, we had 199", mostly between Thanksgiving and the end of January. The plows, never maintained well, broke down and eventually the National Guard had to be brought in. When we lived in Evergreen, Colorado, in the foothills (7-10,000', more than most "foothills") west of Denver, 2 or 3 feet in a day was fairly common. Now we live near Grand Junction at 6,900' and have had less than 30" this winter, more than average here; the city is below us and gets much less. Seems like a vacation all winter here.

30" here in Baltimore (right by BWI).

Finally got dug out today and went to borrow a friend's snowblower. I'm quite impressed at how well the highway department kept up with the snow - the main roads are almost completely clear. The way people are driving is another matter... staying home is the safest thing to do.

I'm slated to leave with the trailer for Naples, FL this week to visit family. Am very apprehensive about traffic while leaving town. Plan is to wait until Wednesday or Thursday so the panic has subsided a bit. Trouble is, there's another system moving through...

That was from wet snow. I personally know that trailer.

Family function for the grandkids. Otherwise, I'd stay here in the warmer weather.
