it has been snowing steady here since 8 AM.
total snowfall so far.....(drum roll....)
2". ::)
worst is yet to come, but i doubt we will end up with more than about 16".
once again, the storm doesn't measure up to the hype.

Of course you want to shovel during the storm.  Why wait until it is 3 feet deep?  I know southerners don't understand how to deal with winter weather - but don't be questioning the wise Yankees!  We know of which we speak.

snow has lightened up for now anyway.
still expect another 10" before all is said and done.

best guess final tally ... 27" (here) with drifts of 4' +.

ps- wonder if p. got at least 4". :) ;)

Great pics!!

While I don't miss having to do all the shoveling and clearing of snow -- I do miss the beauty and serenity that comes with a big snowstorm.

Plus --- when it snows here in Richmond, my street never sees a plow and it takes a week or more to see any sand/salt.  Yet here is your town, with close to 3 feet of snow and I see the road pavement in one pic -- less than 12 hrs after the snow stopped.  If Richmond got that much snow, we'd be shut down for a freakin' month (how's that for a good ol' RI phrase)

Yankees know how to handle the snow and get life moving again.

Great pics, Mitch, and what a lovely house.

But dude, you really need better insulation in your attic. How do I know? Because the snow is so much deeper on your porch roofs. Granted there's less pitch on the porches, but still, so much less snow on the main roof means heat is escaping.

Or is it just because that's where you're growing your pot and the grow-lights make it waaay hot in the attic? ;D

Great pics!!

While I don't miss having to do all the shoveling and clearing of snow -- I do miss the beauty and serenity that comes with a big snowstorm.

Plus --- when it snows here in Richmond, my street never sees a plow and it takes a week or more to see any sand/salt.  Yet here is your town, with close to 3 feet of snow and I see the road pavement in one pic -- less than 12 hrs after the snow stopped.  If Richmond got that much snow, we'd be shut down for a freakin' month (how's that for a good ol' RI phrase)

Yankees know how to handle the snow and get life moving again.

they seem to be making pretty good headway.
1000 state plows/private contractors will do it.
Wow Mitch ... I'm at my friends house and we have all been ooh and ah  ... really enjoyed the pics and LOVE the house . If I were a pirate I would come and make you walk the plank so I could have it all myself , but since I'm not I will settle on being happy for you . 
good old house.  ::)
(just like the movie "money pit"!)
Great pics, Mitch, and what a lovely house.

But dude, you really need better insulation in your attic. How do I know? Because the snow is so much deeper on your porch roofs. Granted there's less pitch on the porches, but still, so much less snow on the main roof means heat is escaping.

Or is it just because that's where you're growing your pot and the grow-lights make it waaay hot in the attic? ;D
the top floor has been in need of a gutting since we moved in 17 years ago.
hmmm....
grow lights?
who would know the difference?? :)


the "official" snow tally for us according to NBC local news was 35.5"!
tonights low temp. will be 0 degrees F. :(
glad we didn't lose power. :)

early bed night.
moving a few tons of snow with windchills around 0 degrees takes it's toll.
(must be something akin to raking leaves in Texas at 75 degrees. :) :) ...
just sayin)

I live in a mixed estate of council housing and private housing. A few years ago, the local council put insulation down in all the attics (we actually call them lofts, but it's the same difference).

Ever since then, you can really notice the difference it makes when it snows. The snow starts sticking to the council house roofs long before it sticks to the private houses, aside from a few where they've installed insulation as well.

It's made a huge difference to my winter heating bill. The money you'd have to spend on gutting your top floor and installing insulation would be recouped on your lower heating bills fairly quickly. Besides, you could feel all smug about lowering your carbon foot-print. :)

we did insulate most of the house over the years, but these projects have worn me and my wallet out!
the upstairs still has the original plaster walls and cieling, so the gutting will be expensive and messy.
it is pretty much just a bedroom and a full bath up there. the floors need leveling, needs new electric, and the bath needs a total remodel.
BIG $$$.
we keep the heat down to 50 degrees (so pipes won't burst) and just use it for storage.
for now, our insulation will be a blanket of snow. :(
