Default 30 Plus inches?

They just revised the forecast, we could see over 30 inches where I live. We currently have about 18-20 inches on the ground right now, winds are 15-25mph. No going to the boat show today..........travel is banned in Atlantic County. Son, wife and I are going out to snowblow and shovel before it gets too deep.

If it's blowing that hard you are probably wasting your time clearing it now - all you are doing is creating a hole for it all to blow back in again.

I've been through it all before. Its better to do it before if gets over the snowblower. It's easy enough to do it twice. The driveway is only 12 x 100

Ours turned to rain last night. It is snowing again now. We probably only have an inch or so. Still have alot of snow on the ground from last weekend though.

Geeh I haven't seen 15-20" worth of snow on the ground at one time in these parts for a very loooong time. When I was young that would have been considered light, now it's basically unheard of.

I just learned that lesson the hard way. Better to stay on top of it. Equipment can be overwhelmed by too much snow.

I'm west of DC and thoughly agree - keep up with it. We logged 28 inches and did it 3 times. Love the people down here . Really nice BUT..................they do NOT know how to handle snow, either driving, shoveling or road plowing.

I got off work last night and forced my way down my street. When I stopped at home, there was a wall of snow plowed up by my truck.
Last night, the street became a wind tunnel and snow stacked up to the 4' fence tops.
I could nearly stand on it, was frozen solid.
It took me an hour and 45 minutes to bash my way 1/4 mile to the main road this morning. So far, my tracks are the only ones on the street.
I'm too old for this sheyt.....
When I go home this evening, I'll try to ram it up into the yard so the plow (if it ever comes) can do its job. Off tomorrow, but have to take someone to the airport if it gets opened.

We might have gotten around 10-15 inches here. Last weekends storm was worse but this one has more ice. The road crews did a good job in our area. Going to finish my coffee and grab the kids to shovel the driveway yet once again. Some of our neighbors pines are down in the inlet that I will have to cut out. I hope it is because of the snow and not our new found beaver friend.

Beavers dining on coniferous tress is pretty much unheard of. Beavers exclusively dine on deciduous trees. So your neighbor's Pine tree would not have been downed by a beaver.

We have it tough down here in Ft Lauderdale as well. Woke up to mid 50's had to close a couple of windows it was so cold.
I feel for all of you up north. I hate snow and it takes away from my fishing time.
