Snowstorm
« on: December 19, 2008, 12:58:50 PM »
We are pushing the 12 inch level of new snow here in our area.  It has been an all morning job keeping it off the greenhouses.  I know what I am going to be doing tomorrow.

How is the storm in other areas?  While we were out cleaning snow off the greenhouses we heard several rounds of thunder-thundersnow-we have. :o

This  storm dumped about 12" on us last night and it is moving east......so look out! I woke up to see lightning flashing followed by thunder as the snow fell. It was so strange.

I've shoveled us out twice so far today and the last time there was 2 inches on the ground again where I started.  Now its back to 6 inches on the drive again and its still coming.  We got 17 inches in the big storm week before last but not sure what we have here so far. It looks like its far from over. They are talking aboutthe wind kicking in this afternoon so it may get bad. We are supposed to go to Tammy's Busdriver Christmas Party this afternoon. If they weren't having all you can eat fish, I'd not want to even attempt it, but hey the Walleye are callin!

It just started here an hour ago - And, I do hate it. The view out my back door is getting worse by the minute. 

    I've been working on next years firewood & sawing some pine & spruce logs for a shed next year. All that works going to be that much tougher now, digging it all out. Half a day tomorrow probably wasted shoveling & plowing. Bah, humbug. >:(

The storm is riding off the the south of here. Sunday is suppose to be some snow I guess. We only have 4" on the ground so far this year. Other parts in NB have over a foot I think, especially the SE around Moncton I'm told.

They closed all of the schools and most everything else around here today.  Sanilac County which is the county north of me is plowing state highways and primary roads only today and only until 6PM.  They will start again tomorrow at 6AM.  Our county has only sent a couple of trucks down our road today, our road is paved but secondary.  The snow has stopped here.  Good luck to the east, guys. :)

Sleet this morning then freezing rain then all rain, no accumulation.  Hopefully the wet roads and walks won't freeze overnight.

30 inches as of last night and another storm predicted for Sunday.  Neighbor plowed my driveway today, able to get out and get mail and hit the grocery store just in case.  This next storm is suppose to have lots of wind.  Hate the thought of losing power when it's down in the teens.

It was windy with snow and a high of 18 today.  Pretty nasty.  We lost a bit of snow last weekend but it's back to knee deep again.  Makes falling timber an even better workout  ::)  More snow coming for tomorrow night and the following 4 days  :(

It has been a touch chilly year lately - so much so that I have wanted to put socks on with my sandals, but I am trying not to go so extreme yet.  ::)

So, how did I end up here anyway?

Hey Guys,

I am commiserating with you.  It has to be tough to deal with all that much snow, especially having to move it out of the way.  I bet that gets old fast.

I appreciate it, but really, putting on socks isn't all that bad...

I think I can still putcha in a snow storm.

I shoveled another foot of the stuff again today. Another big one coming they say. I'm already to the point where I'm throwing it head high to get it over the banks. We can't see to back into the road any more.

We have been somewhat lucky here. The storm yesterday went south of us and we only got 3-4 inches. Now tomorrow there is another storm that will pass to the north of us and we should only get 5-7 inches. But then Sat night the wind is supposed to blow up to 30 MPH and all that snow around us will get blown in here.  ::)

And winter has yet to arrive.   :)

Wow,Onthesauk! I'm 3 hours North of you and we just have a inch or so of the white stuff.It's hovering just below 0 F and it's windy but they are calling for snow in our near future too.

I hope your power does't fail.

There was no snow at lunch time today, you could feel it, but there was only an inch on the ground. When I went back outside to put the tools in the truck at 4:30, we had 6", and by the time I went around the corner, picked up a Christmas tree and drove the six miles home, we had 8". I'll be on the tractor for awhile pushing in the morning. Fortunately, we didn't get any ice last week, like so many in the Northeast did, so it'll be easy pushing.

Sure wish we could get that kind of snow here in the Interior of Alaska.  Y'all stay safe and warm.
