 We were between the 2 snow bands that hit eastern N.Y. and the band Bruno got hit with. I heard on the news that N.Y. got 42" and you read bruno's. We only got 19" but that was enough to keep Rita busy on the deck and walkways and me on the Landini/ snowplow. I ended up cleaning drive twice.

42" here too. Lucky I have a 1044 lull I can put a 5yard bucket on. 
Can't move the snow with the GMC 3500 with a 9' plow. ::) :D :D
Then I can start with the roofs I have. :D :D :D My poor back.

A light dusting in northern Vermont. Thankful only because maybe the ground will freeze before we get an insulating snow pack. Last year we started with snow, THEN the cold weather. Makes for a snowy, muddy mess.

Wow, some of you folks really got hammered!
It seems that the storm crossed NY, below Syracuse and when it hit Mass., it turned North and started dumping!
Here in the center of St Lawrence County I only have "maybe" 1 inches!
When I got up this morning, we had -6 F, our coldest day yet this season!
You folks with large amounts of snow to remove, please remember to take it easy, some of us know what shoveling snow can do to us old folks.
Good luck to all.

We never got any snow from that system. I can still walk around the woods with no snow shoes. The first snow we got was 10", but melted from the bottom up and there might be 4" now. Ground was super wet with 14" from fall rain. ;D The snow sure did lean over some cedar and spruce, still snow stuck on trees here from that 10" storm 2 weeks ago.

Only 10" here but 30 miles south in the Binghamton area was 40"+
My brother just outside of Schenectady got 31" and his snow blower broke down.
He is just a young pup of 81 and needed to shovel his car out.

Bruno - I hear you on the snow, but just think, 100F  and 95% humidity from July - September.  Makes for awesome sawing weather.

42" is way too much work. Think of all the lumber you could make with the same amount of effort and fuel.  We got 13" here and I broke the snow plow frame on the jeep. Almost predictable. Good thing I have a 4x4 tractor loader but no cab.

 :o That is too much to deal with at once! It is like spring here, just a few patches and the grass is greening up, but we will get cold and snow. Still, we won't see -17 and 40 plus inches, at least we had better not!

Hard to get good help these days Bruno. I get some old bricklayers to work part-time for me. They do everything but run the mill. Even help customers load up. A little more $$$$ but worth it.
good luck.

Sorry to hear that. Hopefully you will get big Bob going Monday. Besides the fuel cap how is your new helper doing?
